Yakov Trenin has been assigned to the Milwaukee Admirals by the Nashville Predators following the completion of his 2016-17 season with Gatineau Olympiques in the QMJHL. The 20-year old Russian forward made his pro debut with the Admirals during the 2016 AHL Calder Cup Playoffs.
The past season for Trenin started off with a bang during the off-season that preceded it. He suffered a broken leg while mountain biking and missed the Predators annual Rookie Development Camp. He did join his Gatineau side to provide numbers comparable to the junior season that had the Predators selecting him in the second round of the 2015 NHL Draft. Trenin produced 67 points (30 goals, 37 assists) in 54 games to go along with a plus/minus rating of +16 and 84 penalty minutes. It was the first 30 goal season in his three-year junior playing career.
Trenin’s Gatineau team was eliminated out of the first round of the QMJHL Playoffs by the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in overtime of game seven after Gatineau were down 3-0 in the series and 3-1 in the first period of that seventh game. During the playoffs he tallied points (goals, assists) in games. He joins an Admirals team ahead of the playoffs. He recorded an assist during last season’s opening round playoff series against the Grand Rapids Griffins.
