Jacob Trouba's agent, Kurt Overhardt, said there's no lingering hard feelings for him or Trouba stemming from the defenseman's contract holdout in 2016.
"(The holdout is) all behind everyone now. We have a very positive relationship with Kevin, we have a very positive relationship with the ownership group as well," Overhardt said. "Part of my job is to guide my clients and see what their values are and what they want to do. That's important stuff to do. I think if we had to do it all over again we would do the same thing." The Jets have some decisions to make this summer, which includes nine roster regulars set to be restricted free agents. Trouba is a key player among them and Cheveldayoff wouldn't be surprised if several of them file for arbitration. Jun 6 - 8:55 AM

Jacob Trouba is a key restricted free agent for the Jets this off-season.

Trouba would prefer to get a deal done as soon as possible. "I've been down that road once," he said. "The quicker, the better." Trouba missed Winnipeg’s training camp and the start of the 2016-17 season because of a contract holdout. He eventually agreed to a two-year bridge deal worth $6 million.

Jacob Trouba (ankle) is expected to be ready for the start of the playoffs.

Trouba won't play in Saturday's game against the Blackhawks because he tweaked a pre-existing ankle injury. The 24-year-old will finish the regular season with three goals and 24 points in 55 games. Tucker Poolman will take his spot in the lineup on Saturday night.

Jacob Trouba tweaked a pre-existing injury.

Trouba is doubtful for Saturday's game as a result. It's the Jets' final game of the regular season, but the big question is if Trouba will be ready for the first game of the playoffs.

Jacob Trouba will get back into the lineup on Thursday.

Trouba was a healthy scratch on Tuesday for the sake of giving him a rest before the playoffs. In his case it might have been particularly important as he just returned from a concussion on March 31, so this eases him back in a little.
