Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Despite only playing a few NHL games, Trottier does have a few thing he's famous for.

For starters, look at his name. If you're thinking Bryan Trottier, then you're on the right track. Rocky is Bryan's younger
brother.

He is also the first ever player drafted by the franchise after the team committed to moving to New Jersey. He went
awful high, too. Name recognition probably had to do with that. (Billy MacMillan knew the name very well; he was
with the Isles' organization for a time before he was hired as the Rockies' coach.)

And of the six goals he scored, one of them was a penalty shot. He was the first Devil to score on one when he put it by
Andy Moog.

Most of his career was spent with the AHL's Maine Mariners. He did try his luck in Europe for a couple seasons before
returning to the AHL with the Hershey Bears for the 89-90 season. He would hang it up for good at season's end.
