Fantasy Summary

A true power forward with a good offensive toolset. Strong puck mover on the powerplay, but refuses to shoot. Needs to add more muscle to fill himself out.

January 2022 – Trineyev has had an injury plagued start to 2021-2022 in Russia. He injured his wrist in preseason action in the VHL for Dynamo and missed the first month of the season. He returned to play 10 MHL games, registering six assists, and was promoted to the KHL with Dynamo Moskva. He has played in 11 games having no points as he is not afforded a lot of ice time, which is the case with many young players in the KHL. Trineyev was also cut from the “playing in Russia only” Team Russia World Junior Championship team, but he was behind the other players that were taken due to his early injury and how long it can take to get your shot/stick-handling correct after an injured wrist. Pat Quinn

 

May 2021 – Trineyev’s 2020-2021 season in Russia was a typical one for a young prospect almost too good for the MHL but not really ready for the other leagues. He had 30 points in 30 MHL games for MHK Dynamo Moskva, but once he had to play in the VHL the production dropped to two points in 22 games. Trineyev was not afforded much ice time in the VHL with Dynamo Krasnogorsk and that did not give him a lot to work with development-wise. In three KHL games for Dynamo Moskva he had no points and no ice time. Next season Trineyev will play in the VHL for the same Dynamo Krasnogorsk and should be more of a factor. Pat Quinn

 

October 2020 – Trineyev was drafted 117th overall by the Capitals. Trineyev is expected to spend at least two more years in Russia before crossing the pond.  Pat Quinn

 

July 2020 – Trineyev is a very good passer of the puck and skater, but struggles quite a lot on offense. He is most noticeable on breakouts and moving the puck into the opponents’ half of the ice, as he can fling passes around with ease or use his speed and unpredictability to move past defenders. Despite standing at 6-foot-3, Trineyev doesn’t have any issues with moving up and down the ice and has the agility to make quick turns and switch gears. Moving into the offensive zone, he assumes the power forward role and thrives by creating space for himself. He’s a hard-worker and puts all of his effort in on all of his shifts. This shows in his strong forechecking ability and how he gravitates to puck battles along the boards. Not everything is positive, though. Although he is a tall player, he lacks the muscle to play a physically strong game. He gets shoved around at times in areas where he should be able to hold his own, like in the crease waiting for a tip or rebound. He also struggles with his stickhandling which leads to his body moving faster than his hands and overskating the puck. On the powerplay, it seems he’s afraid to shoot the puck and opts to pass it to lower danger areas rather than putting it on net himself. There’s plenty of time for him to put on some muscle to full out his height and, as he plays against higher-end competition, there’s a good chance he’ll develop into an even better skater and be able to control the puck easier. Trineyev is a really smart player and can lead any line that he plays on, which accompanied by his size and potential, means that there’s a lot of value hidden in him.  Dylan Griffing
