Tropp making case at USA camp

Michigan State RW Corey Tropp has been making a name for himself this week at the U.S. National Junior Evaluation Camp in Lake Placid. After a steady offensive display throughout the opening sessions, the 6'0, 185-pound sophomore was elevated to top-six duty in Team Blue's 7-1 throttling of Sweden on Wednesday. He didn't score any goals, but was in a dominant cluster of Blue forwards who gained the zone and helped control play all evening. Tropp did however pot a goal for Blue in their 4-1 win over Finland on Tuesday. With just under two minutes to play in the opening period, he took a pass from Drew LeBlanc and buried a wrister past Juha Metsola to give Blue a 2-0 lead. Prior to the international contests, Tropp posted a goal and an assist in Team White's 6-4 scrimmage loss to Team Red on Sunday. Both points came in the first half of the 38-minute contest. After taking a Justin Schroeder feed, the Grosse Point, MI native beat Thomas McCollum to give White an early 2-1 lead. He'd again work with Schroeder to set-up Robbie Czarnik for the sixth of seven first half goals between the two clubs. Tropp was held off the scoresheet in White's 5-0 blanking of Team Blue the night earlier. The teams will take a break tomorrow before closing camp with another set of doubleheaders on Friday and Saturday.
