History

Spent two years playing for the Georgetown Raiders of the OJAPHL. In two seasons with the Raiders, Trevelyan compiled 116 points (55 goals, 61 assists), good enough for 12th most in Raiders history. In his final season with the Raiders, was named the team’s MVP by leading them in goals (37), assists (39), and points (76).

2002-03: In his first season at St. Lawrence University, Trevelyan had a strong debut. He finished 2nd among freshman in total points and tops among freshman in goals scored.

2003-04: Trevelyan continued his development as a sophomore. He led the team in goals (23) and had the second most points (23 goals, 16 assists). His 23 goals were the most for a St. Lawrence sophomore since 1993. He finished 11th nationally in goals per game, and second nationally in power play goals. Trevelyan led all St. Lawrence players in points per game. 

2004-05: Trevelyan did not disappoint in his junior season, notching a career high in goals, assists, and points. He led St. Lawrence in points (45) and goals (25), and was second on the team in assists with 20. He also led the team in points per game, averaging over one point per game, and power play points. Trevelyan’s 25 goals were the most for any player in the ECACHL, while his point totals were second most in the ECACHL. He made the All-ECAC team for the first time in his career.

2005-06: Once again, Trevelyan topped his points total from the prior season by compiling a team leading 48 points (20 goals, 28 assists). He led the team in goals, points per game (1.20), and power play points (eight). He also led the team in assists for the first time in his career. He was named ECAC Hockey League Player of the year, and was the only unanimous addition to the All-ECAC First Team. Trevelyan was one of the 10 nominees for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award.

2006-07: Trevelyan began his pro career with the Long Beach Ice Dogs (ECHL) where he led the team in scoring before earning a recall to Providence (AHL), where he would remain for the rest of the season.  With the P Bruins, Trevelyan finished out the season third on the team in scoring and was tied with Matt Lashoff for a team-best nine powerplay goals.

Talent Analysis

Trevelyan is a player who is excellent at finding the net. He can score from just about anywhere on the ice but is particularly good in and below the slot area. His skating combines a good burst of speed with power. He is smart with the puck and is also a superb playmaker. 

Trevelyan possesses great on-ice vision and is quick in assessing situations on the ice and reacting accordingly. He works and competes hard and is willing to get involved in the physical side of the game. One of Trevelyan’s more underrated attributes is his defensively responsibility and his willingness to block shots. He transitions and moves through traffic remarkably well. He drives relentlessly to the net and is willing to take the punishment in front of it to make or finish plays. Trevelyan shoots with frequency and possesses a great wrist shot.

Future
Trevelyan is both fiercely competitive and seemingly fearless. He put together an outstanding rookie pro season at the AHL level, and his stock will continue to rise if he can build upon that in the 2007-08 season. Despite a smaller stature, he has the tools to be a successful pro. He may not be a sure bet to play in the NHL, but if he continues on an upward track, he could become a reliable scoring winger at that level.
