</div></div> Corey Tropp (born July 25, 1989) is an American professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for the Buffalo Sabres in the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Buffalo Sabres in the 3rd round (89th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
Tropp played three seasons (2007–10) of college ice hockey at Michigan State University with the Michigan State Spartans in the CCHA at the NCAA Division I level. Tropp's MSU career was marred by controversy in 2009, when he and teammate Andrew Conboy brutally attacked Michigan Wolverines defenseman Steve Kampfer, in an on-ice incident where Conboy appeared to check Kampfer from behind and Tropp appeared to slash Kampfer in the neck. Both players were suspended by Spartans head coach Rick Comley for the remainder of the season.
Tropp was honored for his outstanding college play when he was named to the CCHA Second All-Star Team in his final year.
Tropp is one of just five NHL players to wear the number 78. The other three players were Pavol Demitra for the Ottawa Senators (1993–96), Eric Landry for the Montreal Canadiens (2000–02), Marc-Antoine Pouliot for the Edmonton Oilers (2006–08) and Benn Ferriero for the San Jose Sharks (2009–present).
