SAN JOSE, Calif. — All four Pittsburgh players drafted in 2011 have reached the NHL.

Upper St. Clair's Vince Trocheck was recalled by the Panthers and will make his debut Friday. Brandon Saad (Chicago), J.T. Miller (New York Rangers) and John Gibson (Anaheim) also have reached the NHL.

Trocheck replaces center Marcel Goc, who was acquired by the Penguins on Wednesday.

“I'm extremely excited,” Trocheck said. “This has been a dream of mine since I was a kid.”
