The NHL’s top scorer has been a devout Mormon since childhood, and the league says he’s had more than 40,000 followers on Twitter.
“My family’s been very faithful to the church, and we’ve never had any problems,” said Trebek, a seventh-round pick in 2010.
“But the way it’s written, it’s not right.
It’s not about our beliefs.
It was about how they treated us.”
Trebek grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, a Mormon enclave.
He went to Brigham Young University and was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
He joined the Utah Jazz in 2002.
“It was a very nice time,” Trebek said.
“There was a lot of stuff going on in my life, so I was a little bit of a novelty to be honest.”
He went on to play in the NBA and NHL, but he had his first taste of the NHL as a player.
Trebek signed with the Detroit Red Wings in 2006 and became the youngest player to score a goal.
He played a total of 864 NHL games over four seasons, becoming one of the most productive players in the league.
The Red Wings signed Trebek to a two-year contract in 2014 and he was an integral part of their Cup winning run that included the 2015 Stanley Cup championship.
Treblett became the highest-paid player in the NHL last season when he signed a five-year deal worth $23.5 million.
He’s one of several players the Red Wings acquired to bolster their team.
He scored 10 goals and was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team in 2016.
Trebs, who has an 18-year-old son named Jack, has become a regular on the Red Wing’s power play, a team staple.
He has two goals in seven games this season.
“The first goal I scored, I wasn’t expecting, but I knew it was coming,” Trebs said.
He said he wasn’t worried about the scoring.
“I’m just trying to get more shots up and to be more involved,” Trebly said.
The Wings have a roster full of young forwards who need time to develop.
They need to get younger, but Trebek is one of many young players with experience who have found the NHL.
Trebrands’ mother, Trisha, grew up Catholic and said she still identifies as a Christian.
“She’s very proud of her daughter,” Trebrans mother, Lori Trebras, said.
Trebears first foray into the NHL came as a 16-year old in 2003 when he was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers.
The next year he signed with St. Louis, where he spent three seasons.
Trebes goal in the 2005-06 season was his first in the Western Conference.
He had four goals in the playoffs and a team-high 24 points in 2009-10.
In 2012-13 he was traded to the Minnesota Wild for two draft picks and a third-round selection.
He signed a two and a half-year, $3.5-million contract.
Trebys goal in 2014-15 was his second of the season, his first since a hat trick in December of 2013.
He was a healthy scratch in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals and didn’t score in the series, but his goal against Pittsburgh on the final game of the series made it 4-2.
“If I had scored on that goal, it would have been my first goal,” Trebbies mother said.
His next goal came in the first round of the 2016 playoffs, when he scored in the final seconds of the third period to make it 6-3 in the best-of-7 series.
“He’s been unbelievable,” Trebes father, Jim Trebbs, said of Trebes.
He is just so smart, so smart and so consistent with what he does. “
That’s what he’s been able to do.
Trebs had 10 goals last season. “
When you’re playing against him, he’s very tough, so he’ll go for you.”
Trebs had 10 goals last season.
His best game was his game-winner against the Columbus Blue Jackets in Game 4 of the second round, when Trebs scored with 3:12 left to give the Wings a 4-3 win.
The season was Trebs first with the NHL, playing on the Blue Jackets roster in 2007.
Trebies second NHL goal came against the Edmonton Oil Kings in the second game of a best-in-series against Columbus.
Trebles second goal came on the power play in Game 1 of the first-round against the Detroit Blues in 2009.
Trebers best game in the regular season came in Game 2 of the
