Trouba (upper body) will miss Thursday's matchup with Los Angeles but may be available Friday against Anaheim, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Trouba will miss his fifth straight outing due to the upper-body ailment; he's just one of four Jets blueliners out of the lineup. Although Winnipeg has not been mathematically eliminated from postseason contention, the Jets would need to be nearly perfect in their final nine games, which would be difficult even with their full complement of defensemen. When healthy, the 23-year-old has averaged just under 25 minutes per game, including 1:40 on the power play, so he's seen plenty of opportunities to generate offense. In fact, he's done so at the highest rate of his career (.52 points per game).
Trouba (upper body) will miss another week with his injury, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports. If that extended timetable holds true, it'll mean four more games missed for the talented young defenseman. Trouba's already been out for three contests due to the injury, and the Jets allowed 10 goals in his absence over that stretch. A trip to IR is entirely possible.
Trouba (upper body) has been ruled out of Thursday's matchup with the Islanders, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The 23-year-old's status has been downgraded twice in the last two days, having initially been deemed questionable Wednesday. With Trouba and his nearly 25 minutes of ice time per game out of the lineup, expect Dustin Byfuglien to play an increased role.
Trouba (upper body) is considered doubtful for Thursday's away tilt with the Islanders, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The 2012 first-round pick took to the ice for Thursday's morning skate, but only participated in the informal part of the session. Trouba has 27 points in 52 games this year while posting a plus-7 rating and logging a massive 24:49 of time on ice per game, so his absence will surely be felt by the Jets. Expect the team to issue one last update on Trouba's status prior to puck drop.
Trouba (upper body) remains questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Islanders, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Trouba, who missed Monday's outings, needs just two more points to tie his career high 29 point which he reached during his rookie campaign. When healthy, the blueliner trails only Dustin Byfuglien for the team lead in ice time -- 24:49 per game -- which includes minutes logged on both the power play and penalty kill. While his offensive production limits his fantasy value, his immeasurable contributions will certainly be felt indirectly if he is unavailable.
