Jacob Trouba earned an assist in his return to the lineup Wednesday night.
He logged 20:16 of ice time in Winnipeg's 4-0 win over Columbus. Trouba also posted two penalty minutes, one hit, two blocks and a plus-1 rating. The Jets were missing Mark Stuart because of a lower-body injury, but it's expected that he'll be good to go when the NHL resumes play after the All-Star break. That would finally give Winnipeg a healthy group on the back end. Jan 22 - 10:04 AM

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.
