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.

Jacob Trouba got Winnipeg on the board with the opening goal in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to Anaheim.

Jacob Trouba has thoroughly impressed coach Paul Maurice.

"It's so hard to play in the NHL as a young, first-year defenseman," Maurice said. "But then to be a catalyst for a hockey team is really unusual. He's just been great to be around and I really enjoy watching him." The 20-year-old rookie has averaged 22:09 of ice time per game and he's contributed 23 points.
Mar 10 - 9:15 AM

Jacob Trouba earned two assists in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Nashville.

The rookie blueliner has three goals and four helpers in his last seven games. Trouba is tied with Seth Jones for third among first-year defensemen with 20 points in 38 games this season. He also leads all rookies in average ice time at 21:40 per contest.
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.

The rookie blueliner also scored his fifth goal of the season in the match. "It's all still pretty new and I'm just trying to enjoy it as much as I can," Trouba said. "Hopefully, I will get used to it as I go. I'm learning a lot from other players and coaches, soaking it all up and trying to enjoy it." Trouba has 14 points in 32 games.
Jan 17 - 6:36 AM

Trouba clearly is an offensive-minded defenseman. He is on a four game point streak with one goal and three assists.
Jan 4 - 11:25 AM

Jacob Trouba seems to blossoming into a star before our eyes.

The Jets' 2012 first-round draft pick has been playing excellent hockey and seems to be gaining confidence with each game. Trouba has registered eight points in the Jets' last 13 games and he is becoming one of the Jets' go-to-guys to lug the puck up the ice. If Trouba can be acquired cheaply in your pool, do it without delay. He will cost significantly more in the coming weeks.

Jacob Trouba earned a pair of assists on Monday night.

The rookie defenseman had a goal and an assist in his NHL debut back on Oct. 1, but after that he went 10 straight games without earning a point. Monday's contest versus the New York Rangers was his fourth appearance since he returned to the lineup from a neck injury. Coach Claude Noel likes Trouba's skill set and he's quickly becoming a reliable defender for the team.

Jacob Trouba (neck) will return from a 17-game absence on Monday night against New Jersey.

"We'll monitor his minutes but I think he's ready to go. He'll be enthusiastic to play. We're looking forward to having him back," coach Claude Noel said of Trouba. "And now we have seven good defensemen. They've played pretty well, our guys, and it's good. It creates some competition." Trouba had a goal and an assist in his debut, but he didn't have a point in his next seven contests and picked up a minus rating in most of those outings. He has plenty of potential but take a wait-and-see approach with him.

It will be decided after Monday's morning skate if he will play against the New Jersey Devils. "I'm excited to start playing again, that's for sure," Trouba said after Sunday's practice. "It's been a rough month... however long it's been for me. I'm not used to not playing." He has been sidelined for the past 17 games.
