The Redwoods LC have signed rookie goalie Tim Troutner Jr. Drafted 20th overall in the fourth round of the inaugural PLL draft. Troutner was the only goalie selected in the PLL draft and is the first PLL draftee to sign their rookie contract.
In college at High Point Troutner was a crucial part of the Panthers program as they evolved into one of the best in the SoCon, and even the country this past season. As a senior in 2019, Troutner helped lead High Point to a 13-3 record that included wins over Duke, Virginia, and a trip to the SoCon championship game.
A four-year starter, the 6-foot-1, 195 pound goalie racked up a career total of 668 saves at High Point. He finished with a .539 save percentage over his college career.
Troutner is a game maker and can make those tough saves that many deem impossible. While he may not get a started shot as a rookie, Troutner will get to learn under the tutelage of Jack Kelly who is arguably one of the best to ever stand in between the pipes.
PLL training camp begins next week on Friday, May 17th at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
