Jacob Trouba took a page out of Ryan Suter's playbook by seemingly never coming off the ice, playing 27:13 Thursday night against Calgary.
The 20-year-old sophomore defenseman tallied a secondary assist on Chris Thorburn's goal, and saw 7:44 of powerplay time and 5:24 on the kill. Which means he was on nearly each of the dozen PP's and PK's for Winnipeg. Clearly Trouba feels he has much to prove. Oct 3 - 1:01 AM

The Winnipeg Jets are expecting continued improvement from defenseman Jacob Trouba this season.

Trouba was a revelation for Winnipeg last season as he racked up 29 points in 65 contests (10 of which were goals) and developed into a go-to player for then-coach Claude Noel. With another year of development under his belt, he and fellow youngster Mark Scheifele will be counted on to be more than complementary pieces for a team struggling to make the postseason for the first time since leaving Atlanta.

Other than the typical mistakes of a player who is just 20 and in his first NHL season, Trouba has had a tremendous rookie season, with 10 goals, 18 assists, 43 penalty minutes and a plus-three rating. He's a unique talent and can already ably log heavy minutes as well (26:10 on Saturday). Bryan Little, Tobias Enstrom and Olli Jokinen notched the other goals. Blake Wheeler and Michael Frolik assisted twice.

Jan 29 - 7:40 AM

Jacob Trouba continues to progress and is now one of the NHL's best young defensemen.

He has really come into his own over the past six weeks and especially since Paul Maurice took over the team five games ago. Maurice has paired Trouba with stay-at-home Mark Stuart and the pair have complemented each other very well. In the five games that Maurice has been the Jets' bench boss, Trouba is plus nine and averaging well over 22 minutes per game. In addition he has scored three goals and registered four points. The sky is the limit for Trouba. Grab him if you can get him for a decent price.
