Jacob Trouba has been playing an important role as a shutdown defenseman for the Jets.

Only Dustin Byfuglien is logging more minutes per game than Trouba's 23:40. "He wanted to keep his game real simple and not force it too early," said Jets head coach Paul Maurice. "He got into a good rhythm and he's playing good minutes now and he's starting to find those places where he can jump in (on the rush) and we certainly encourage that." The 22-year-old has put up a respectable nine points in 23 games this season.

Jacob Trouba is having a nice season despite a late start.

The 22-year-old defender didn't return to the blue line until Nov. 11th, and has seen just 21 games in that time. Still, he's posted a goal and six points with 16 PIMs, 31 hits and 44 blocks while averaging 23:30 of ice time per game - his highest in two seasons. If you can still buy low on him, do so.

Jacob Trouba scored his first goal of 2016-17 in the Winnipeg Jets' 6-2 loss to the Calgary Flames Saturday.

Jacob Trouba finally collected his first points of the year during Sunday's 3-0 win over the Predators.

Trouba picked up a pair of assists along with a minor, a block, two hits and four shots during his 27:07 of work. Through nine games, it would seem the youngster is well on his way to another fine season.

Jacob Trouba played 23:14 in his first game of the season.

Head coach Paul Maurice didn't exactly ease him back into the lineup. Trouba missed the first 13 games of the season because of a contract dispute and he sat for two games, while the team waited to get him back into game shape. "(Trouba) was far better than I was expecting," said Maurice. "Not based on Jake, but being out of the lineup as long as he has. To step into a game like that, I liked an awful lot of what he did." Trouba finished the game with a minus-1 rating, two shots on goal and three blocked shots.

Jacob Trouba and Mark Stuart will be scratched against the Coyotes on Thursday.

There's still no timetable for Trouba to make his season debut, but one can safely assume it'll be before the month is through. Stay patient.
