    Jets' Jacob Trouba: Enduring difficult season

    Trouba is on pace to score 17 points this season. The 21-year-old defenseman burst onto the scene in 2013-14, when he recorded 29 points in 65 games (an 82-game pace of 37 points), but has seen his production fall in consecutive seasons. Trouba is in the final year of his entry-level contract, and will be a restricted free agent this offseason. The Jets will most definitely be looking to retain the services of the ninth-overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, but contract negotiations may be difficult for the parties involved.

    Jets' Jacob Trouba: Productive all around Tuesday

    Trouba played a pivotal role in Tuesday night's 4-1 win over the Red Wings. He went plus-2 with a pair of scores, including a goal shorthanded. Trouba added four blocked shots and earned the game's second star for his huge effort. This is a guy that works hard on both ends of the ice, though he's definitely more prone to shutting down opponents than creating offense on his own. The two lamp-lighters doubled Trouba's goal output for the season.

    Jets' Jacob Trouba: Production stagnates despite move to top pairing

    Trouba's offensive struggles have continued despite a move to Winnipeg's top-defensive pair. The ninth-overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft has only seven points in 31 games this season, and has gone scoreless in his last four contests. While the Jets have struggled as a team this year, big things were expected from Trouba as he entered his third season in the league. The Michigan product scored at a rate of 0.44 points per game in 2013-14 as a rookie, but that rate has fallen to 0.23 points per game during the current campaign.

    Jets' Jacob Trouba: Impressing with new defensive partner

    Trouba will continue to play on the second defensive pairing after impressing against Ottawa on Thursday. After averaging north of 22 minutes per game in his each of first two seasons in the league, Trouba has seen his ice time drop to 19:59 minutes a night in 2015-16. As a result, Trouba has only two points, both assists, in 14 games this season. However, being paired with fellow first-round pick Tyler Myers is an encouraging sign that Trouba will earn more ice time.

  • Jets' Trouba Rested For Saturday's Finale

    News: Jacob Trouba (rest) will not play Saturday against the Flames, Patrick Williams of NHL.com reports.
    Analysis: The Jets secured their spot in the playoffs earlier this week and will have the luxury of resting Jacob Trouba, along with several other key regulars for a largely meaningless regular-season finale. Trouba will finish his second NHL season with seven goals and 22 points over 65 games.
  • Jets' Trouba Picks Up Assist In Loss

    News: Jacob Trouba gathered an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Blues.
    Analysis: Jacob Trouba's return in late January from an upper-body injury was expected to provide an offensive lift to the Jets' blue line, but that hasn't really come to fruition just yet. Since returning to action, Trouba has picked up three goals and five assists over 20 games. Those totals are respectable, but probably not enough to warrant a lineup spot in mid-sized or shallow formats.
  • Jets' Trouba Helps Out In Win

    News: Jacob Trouba tallied an assist and five hits in Saturday's win over the Red Wings.
    Analysis: After returning from injured reserve in January with three points in his first four games back, Jacob Trouba has gone quiet since then, contributing a goal and assist over his past seven contests. While the 20-year-old makes for an easier drop in shallower formats when he's not producing, those in deeper formats should give him a little more leash. With 46 points in 107 career NHL games, Trouba probably offers more fantasy appeal than most of the other defensemen sitting on the waiver wire.
  • Jets' Trouba Lights Lamp Tuesday

    News: Jacob Trouba tallied a goal on one of his four shot attempts in Tuesday's loss to the Penguins. He also contributed four hits and three blocks on the defensive end.
    Analysis: That gives Jacob Trouba two points in his first two games back from a long-term injury. The 20-year-old has the look of a future stud on the blue line and has already flashed as much in his one and a half seasons in the league, logging 43 points in 98 games. He's worth a speculative pickup in just about any format he might be available.
  • Jets' Trouba (Upper Body) Performs Well In Return

    News: Jacob Trouba (upper body) skated 20:16 in his return to action Wednesday against the Blue Jackets, finishing with an assist and two PIM on the evening.
    Analysis: Jacob Trouba had missed the last 16 games due to the injury, but his return will give Winnipeg their optimal blue line going forward. The 20-year-old has four goals and nine assists over 32 games on the season and makes for a respectable roster addition in mid-sized or deeper formats.
