Upper St. Clair native named OHL's outstanding player
Vince Trocheck of Upper St. Clair has won the Red Tilson Trophy as outstanding player for the Ontario Hockey League.
Trocheck led the OHL with 50 goals and 109 points in 63 games with Plymouth, and his plus-49 rating also paced that league.
Trocheck, a forward, is the second consecutive Western Pennsylvania product to win the Tilson Trophy. Goalie Michael Houser of Wexford won it last season with London.
On Monday, Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Saad of Gibsonia became the first Western Pennsylvania-born player to be nominated for a major NHL award when he was named a finalist for the Calder Trophy (top rookie).
Four local players were part of the Team USA squad that won the most recent World Junior Championship. Trocheck was a member of that squad.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
