Tropp's redemption mirrors that of MSU hockey resurgence

With the Great Lakes Invitational beginning on Tuesday, The Detroit News ran a story a few days back detailing the bounce back seasons of both Corey Tropp and the Michigan State hockey program.

Tropp plays on a line with freshman Derek Grant (seven goals, 19 points) and senior Nick Sucharski (two goals, eight points).

"We have very good chemistry," Tropp said. "They (Grant, Sucharski) are highly-skilled players. Coach (Comley) will change up lines so we play with a lot of different players during the season.

"I'm known for being an offensive player, but I've worked hard on being a complete player. I play on all special teams, including penalty killing. I want to be known for being a complete player."

Tropp enters the GLI on a hot streak. He has scored at least one goal in each of his last four games. He scored a hat trick in Michigan State's last game, a 4-1 win over Bowling Green Dec. 12 at Munn Arena. He had four goals and six points during MSU's sweep of the Falcons.

Tropp's Spartans will kixk off the GLI on Tuesday versus Michigan Tech. Rival Michigan and RPI round out this year's field.
