University of Michigan defenseman Jacob Trouba (6’2″, 195) is four inches taller and weighs 22 pounds more than Northern Michigan University’s Reed Seckel (5’10″, 173). And the difference is even greater when Trouba is going full steam and Seckel has his head down. Trouba steamrolled Seckel in last Friday’s game between the two clubs. As you can see in the video, Trouba caught Seckel high and as a result he received a game misconduct for contact to the head and an automatic one-game suspension.

There has been a kinder, gentler Therrien on display this season, but he made it known he wasn't happy with his team's slow start against the Jets. The dressing room was closed...
