Observations

May 2019 – Back in March the story-line was that if the Guelph Storm were going to go on a run they would need Toropchenko to step up. The hulking winger finished the OHL playoffs with 13 goals, six assists, and 19 points in 24 games. He caught fire in the OHL Championship series against the Ottawa 67’s when he recorded seven goals over a four game stretch to help send the Storm to the Memorial Cup. Toropchenko has remained hot since the start of the Memorial Cup, recording a first period hat trick in the Storm’s opening match against Royn-Noranda. He has since recorded two assists leaving him with three goals, two assists, and five points in three games played. Sam Stern

 

April 2019 – Toropchenko’s play is one of the biggest reasons that the Guelph Storm are moving onto the second round of the OHL Playoffs. Toropchenko’s 6’3 201lb frame was just too much to contain for the Kitchener Rangers. He drove to the front of the net with ease and did it often as he recorded five goals and two assists in the four-game sweep over their next-door neighbours. The winger’s five goals are tops on his team and place him in a five-way tie for second in the playoffs behind Adam Boqvist’s six. Sam Stern

March 2019 – After a slow February Toropchenko has started March on-track. Through six games this month he has recorded two goals and six points. Guelph will face rival Kitchener in the first round of the OHL playoffs and will expect Toropchenko to contribute in a big way, with size and strength around the net. He’s built for playoff hockey. Sam Stern

December 2018 – Toropchenko has signed an entry-level contract with the St. Louis Blues.
