Trouba averages over 23:00 per game for the Jets, and he is becoming one of the better young defensemen in the NHL.

In the wake of Winnipeg's ravaged blue line, Coach Maurice is going with new defensive pairs Friday night against Colorado.

Mark Stuart wil pair with Jacob Trouba on the top pair, while rookie Ben Chiarot with skate with Dustin Byfuglien on the second. Adam Pardy and Paul Postma will guard as well. Looks like there will be some extra heavy lifting to do come special teams, and especially on the forwards to help out in all areas.

Jacob Trouba scored a goal and added two assists in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win against Edmonton.

Trouba had a hand in each of Winnipeg's three goals. His first period goal was his first since November 6th against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but Trouba does have six points in his last four games. The 20-year-old has 10 points in 26 games this season. Dustin Byfuglien and Mathieu Perreault (game-winning goal) also scored for the Jets.

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.

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.
