Jacob Trouba Wants To Have “A Big Impact This Year”

from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun, As big a splash as Trouba made starting as a 19-year-old straight out of college, the Rochester, Michigan, product wants more of a role in Year 2. “As big as I can get it,” a grinning Trouba said, Monday, after a pre-training camp skate at the Iceplex. “I want to play on the power play this year, for sure. That’s something you’ve...

2014-15 Winnipeg Jets Preview: Jacob Trouba, Mark Scheifele Provide Optimism

The 2013-14 NHL season was the first for the Winnipeg Jets as members of the Western Conference, and it didn’t go very well with an 11th place finish. The Jets moved back to Winnipeg for the 2011-12 season after relocating from Atlanta and haven’t made the playoffs over the last three seasons. Fan support remains strong, but the team has to show some progress sooner or later...

Trouba Needs to be in Running for Calder

If there is one thing I know that will monumentally disappoint me this season with the Winnipeg Jets – other than the fact that we are stuck in .500 purgatory – is that Jacob Trouba will somehow be overlooked in the race for the Calder Trophy. Through 16 games this season, the Jets rookie defenseman has made good decisions and some bad ones, but has always made the Jets a better...

The Winnipeg Jets Off-Season Game Plan

from Scott Cullen of TSN, Many of Winnipeg's core players are in their twenties, in and around their prime years, so while that's reason for optimism, it's also reason for some urgency to take advantage of the kind of production being provided by the likes of Andew Ladd, Blake Wheeler and Dustin Byfuglien. Byfuglien is an interesting case for the Jets, having...

Solving Michigan’s Blue Line Puzzle

Defenseman Kevin Clare (now graduated), celebrates a goal with rising sophomore forward Alex Kile. Photo by Paul Sherman By David Malinowski (@dmmm14) It’s hard to believe that nearly two years ago, Michigan was losing some of its best defensemen over the last decade. If they weren’t borderline stars, at a minimum they were reliable, regardless of what the end result was. Two...

Is Your Blue Line In Trouble? Add Trouba!

Jacob Trouba, the ridiculous rookie beast on the blue line that’s been so good the Jets were able to shift Dustin Byfuglien to wing and not only have they not missed a beat, the experiment seems to be a success given the Jets’ recent offensive surge. How beastly you say? 16 points in his last 26 tilts, and when you break it down his line over the last two months goes a little...
