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 will make his long-awaited return to the Jets' blue line Friday night against the Avalanche.

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.

Jacob Trouba is a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against Dallas.

Trouba signed a two-year contract yesterday, but the Jets aren't comfortable putting him into a game situation just yet. He'll probably get into the lineup fairly soon. Mark Stuart will also watch from the press box.

Jacob Trouba doesn't want to be traded anymore.

"No, I've committed to sign here," he said Tuesday after agreeing to a two-year deal. "When I signed that piece of paper everything changed in my mind." Trouba skated Tuesday morning and the earliest he could be back in the lineup is Thursday versus Arizona.

Jacob Trouba isn't expected to wait too long before getting into the Winnipeg lineup.

"We're hopeful sooner rather than later," GM Kevin Cheveldayoff said. "If they tell me (Tuesday), fine. If they tell me the next day, I'm fine with that too." Trouba inked a two-year deal with the Jets on Monday. It's unclear where he will slot in though especially with Tyler Myers close to being ready to return from injury.
Nov 8 - 11:11 AM

Jacob Trouba's new contract with the Jets is done.

He will receive $2.5 million this season and 3.5 million next year as part of a bridge deal. Trouba had six goals and 21 points in 82 games last season.
Nov 7 - 3:38 PM

Jacob Trouba is reportedly going to re-sign with the Winnipeg Jets.

According to sources of Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, Trouba has agreed to a two-year contract with an annual average value of $3 million. The restricted free agent defender had been holding out, while waiting for a trade or a new deal.
Nov 7 - 3:35 PM

Per Darren Dreger, the Winnipeg Jets are willing to give Jacob Trouba as many as six years on his next contract.

Well it seems the Jets are willing to concede on length, but as we all know, it's about the term. Trouba wants to be played like the top-tier defender he is, and wants to play on the right side. So unless he either caves or gets the other two requisites, then he's destined to remain at home.
Oct 27 - 7:57 PM

Agent Kurt Overhardt isn't concerned by the Dec. 1 deadline for Jacob Trouba to get signed.

If he doesn't have a contract by then he isn't eligible to play in the 2016-17 campaign. "It's not something on our minds," Overhardt told the Winnipeg Free Press on Monday. "There's obviously a lot of time between now and then. We're going to continue to keep working in good faith and try helping to facilitate a positive transaction so everyone can benefit." GM Kevin Cheveldayoff has been working hard for some kid of resolution, but there is still no contract and no trade in place for Trouba.

Winnipeg isn't making it easy to acquire Jacob Trouba.

TSN's Bob McKenzie said most teams won't give the Jets what they want in return for Trouba because they specifically want a left-handed defender of similar age and potential. However, that could change and most teams are hoping that it will. Boston, Arizona, Colorado and the Rangers are very interested in Trouba, but they aren't the right fit right now for what the Jets want in return. McKenzie believes the wait could be long for a trade as a result.
Sep 28 - 6:00 PM

Arizona and Edmonton are considered the early favorites for Winnipeg defender Jacob Trouba.

The Jets want a top-four or top-pairing left-shot defenseman in return because their plan was to play Trouba alongside Dustin Byfuglien or Tyler Myers this year. Boston could also be in the mix because their interest in Trouba has been reported since the off-season began.
Sep 27 - 10:26 AM

One potential landing spot for Jacob Trouba, should he be traded, is Toronto.

The Buds need a right-handed shot defenseman and the Jets could part with Trouba given he is behind both Dustin Byfuglien and Tyler Myers, who both shoot right. The Leafs have good young talent in their system and plenty of picks to satisfy the Jets. There will be plenty of interested teams in the mix though. Keep an eye on this situation going forward.
Sep 25 - 11:41 AM

Winnipeg Jets GM Ken Cheveldayoff has responded publicly to Jacob Trouba's trade request.

In short, Cheveldayoff has noted that Trouba "represents an important part of the long-term future of our club." He went on to state that any decision related to Trouba will be "best interest of the Winnipeg Jets hockey club." Lastly, the Jets cannot "compel" Trouba to report to training camp. For a public divorce, both sides seem intent on remaining amicable.
