One Card Post - Blue Cubes Trocheck
How Much?: $3.31
Why?: The Blue Cubes parallels from the inaugural O-Pee-Chee Platinum set remain some of my favorite shiny hockey cards from the last few years. I grabbed this one nearly three years ago now, because I thought Trocheck was one of the young players in the league with the most potential. He was improving year by year through last season, where he topped both the 30-goal and 70-point plateaus at just 24 years of age.
Unfortunately, Trocheck's season appears to be finished after he suffered a particularly nasty leg injury back in November. It was the type of injury where you just hope he can regain his former speed and movement whenever he does eventually return. Best of luck to Vincent as he continues his recovery, and in the meantime I'm happy to own this rookie card.
