One of the younger players in the draft, Trenholm is a physically mature center with solid two-way instincts. In the defensive zone he is great at tracking his assignment and uses his awareness and active stick to disrupt plays and prevent chances on rebounds. He isn’t scared to get involved physically, throwing his body around in the open ice or punishing his opponent along the boards. Trenholm can be a little overeager in the transition game, leaving the defensive zone early which is not something you want to see especially from a center. He has good lateral movement which makes up for his lack of straight line speed. Offensively he’s more effective off the puck, using his agility and awareness to get open for shots. He has to improve on his shooting and his effectiveness with the puck in the offensive zone. He has tools to work with on both ends of the ice but does not seem to do anything at an above-average level. There’s a lot to work with and with the right coaching and patience he could develop into a nice player for whoever drafts him. He could project as a third-line center if all goes well, specializing in a shutdown role and getting some time on the PK and the ability to contribute a little on the offensive side.
