The Jets will welcome back defender Jacob Trouba Sunday night against the Oilers.

Trouba has posted 16 points with 62 PIMs, 107 hits, and 131 blocks through 63 games this season. Which unfortunately is his lowest production of his young career.
Mar 6 - 7:02 PM

Jacob Trouba (upper body) will be a game-time decision on Sunday against Edmonton.

Reporting Ken Wiebe noted that Trouba's morning skate "went well", which is certainly encouraging. But things going well does not always equate to playing time. So stay tuned.
Mar 6 - 1:59 PM

Jacob Trouba will not be in the Jets' lineup when they face off against Montreal Saturday night.

He has an upper-body injury that kept him from practising on Friday and will sideline him for Saturday's contest. Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice did indicate there is a chance Trouba could return to action for Sunday's game against the Oilers. Consider Trouba day-to-day.
Mar 5 - 1:25 PM

Jacob Trouba produced a goal and a helper in a 6-3 victory over Dallas on Thursday night.

His fifth goal of the season was Winnipeg's sixth goal of the match. Trouba finished with a plus-3 rating in 20:52 of ice time. He has 16 points in 60 games this campaign.
Feb 26 - 10:15 AM

Jacob Trouba registered an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Carolina.

He helped set up a goal by Blake Wheeler in the third period. Trouba has chipped in 13 points and 58 penalty minutes in 56 games this year. There have been some trade rumors involving the young defender, as the pending restricted free agent may price himself too high for Jets.
Feb 17 - 9:31 AM

Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba scored two goals in a 4-1 win over the Red Wings on Tuesday night.

His offensive production might have dipped compared to two seasons ago, but Trouba is establishing himself as one of the bright young defensemen of the future. He now has nine points in 35 games this season and should only be a consideration in leagues that count penalty minutes.

Jacob Trouba will be paired with Dustin Byfuglien on Winnipeg's second defense pairing for Tuesday's game against the Saint Louis Blues.

The 21-year-old has had a somewhat underwhelming start to the season and will certainly be looking to take on a larger role for the Jets. He ranks third in ice time for Jets defensemen (behind Byfuglien and Tyler Myers), averaging a shade over 20 minutes of ice time per game. Though he is on pace to put up less points than he did last season, there is plenty of optimism surrounding Trouba, and with good reason. He is pointless in his last three games.

Jacob Trouba and the Jets have agreed to worry about the season now and talk contract after its conclusion, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

Friedman described it as an "amicable" decision between the two sides. Trouba is a restricted free agent this offseason. He has seven points in 27 games. The 21-year-old boasts a boatload of upside and it wouldn't be surprising to see him get a long-term deal in Winnipeg this offseason.

Jacob Trouba registered two points in the Jets’ 5-3 loss to the Avalanche on Saturday night.

Trouba filled the stat sheet in this one, with a goal, assist plus-one-rating, two penalty minutes and three shots on net. He even blocked five shots. Trouba has the ability to eventually become a big point-producing defenseman, however this season has not been kind to him. He has two goals and five points in 25 games. Blake Wheeler and Andrew Ladd tallied the other goals.

Word to the wise: there's at least a chance that Winnipeg Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba may be at risk to face league discipline.

Trouba seemed to deliver a high hit on St. Louis Blues forward Troy Brouwer, who was shaken up. There was no penalty on the play. Brouwer did return to action, so the concern may be limited, but still keep an eye on Rotoworld just in case.

Although it may be difficult to know from a review of the scoresheet, Jacob Trouba has played very well in the Jets' two games to date.

He has not registered a point but he has a plus-5 and is creating scoring chances from the blueline. There is a lot of competition for power play ice time among Winnipeg's defensemen and Trouba will have to fight for his. However, he remains on course to be a big part of the team's future and a very productive fantasy rearguard.

Jacob Trouba has undergone successful surgery on his hand.

Trouba is expected to be fine by the time training camp starts. He suffered the injury in Game 2 of the first round, but stayed in the lineup. He had seven goals and 22 points in 65 regular season contests.

Jacob Trouba suffered a broken hand in Game 2 of the Jets' first round series.

Trouba stayed in the lineup, which is impressive considering he could only hold his stick with two fingers. Now that the Jets have been eliminated, he'll undergo surgery and take six-to-eight weeks to recover. In other words, he should be fine for the start of the 2015-16 campaign.

Jacob Trouba is not at the Jets' practice Friday.

We don't know if this is due to illness, injury or just a day off. Check back with us later on for an update on Trouba's status.
