Jets' Trouba Dealing With Neck Strain

News: Jacob Trouba's early exit from the U.S. Men's National Team during the 2014 IIHF World Championships was related to a neck strain, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: On a positive note, the U.S. team did say that Jacob Trouba was being held out of the rest of the tournament for precautionary reasons, so it doesn't sound like the neck strain will be something that will limit his preparation for training camp. Trouba had a solid rookie season with 29 points and a plus-4 rating in 65 games, and will be counted on to assume an even greater role offensively in his second season.

Jets' Trouba Leaves World Championships

News: Jacob Trouba has left the U.S. Men's National Team to return home for precautionary reasons.
Analysis: After suffering an injury in the Jets' final regular season game, Jacob Trouba was believed to be fully healthy for the 2014 IIHF World Championships, but it seems he may have suffered some sort of injury scare. The defenseman contributed two goals and an assist over four games for the U.S. team.

Jets' Trouba To Play In World Championships

News: Jacob Trouba (face) will play for Team USA in the 2014 IHHF World Championships in May.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba's presence on the United States roster suggests the Jets have no worries about him healing up quickly from the shot to the face he took in Friday's season finale against the Flames. He cemented himself as one of the game's better fantasy defensemen as a rookie, totaling 10 goals, 19 assists, 95 hits and 132 blocked shots over 65 games.

Jets' Trouba Leaves With Injury

News: Jacob Trouba left Friday's game against the Flames after taking a puck to the face and will not return.
Analysis: The injury occurred when the Flames' Paul Byron attempted a slap shot that deflected off Jacob Trouba's stick and into his face. Friday was the season finale for the Jets, so fantasy players won't have to worry about Trouba's availability moving forward. He'll have all offseason to heal up from the ailment and reflect upon a productive rookie season. Trouba finished with 10 goals and 19 assists over 65 games.

Jets' Rookie Trouba Gets 10th Goal Of Season

News: Jacob Trouba recorded his 10th goal of the season in Saturday's win over Toronto. The rookie has 28 points in 62 games this season.
Analysis: That's a mighty fine total for a rookie defender whose strong play has resulted in whispers that he might be the team's best on the back end. His sophomore season will be challenging (they always are). But his guy is fantasy gold and will be among the league's best fantasy producers at his position.

Jets' Trouba Warming Up Again

News: Jacob Trouba picked up an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba has points in three of his last five games after going a long stretch without one. He's possibly the best young talent on the Jets and is worth a flyer down the stretch for fantasy owners.

Jets' Trouba Snaps Goalless Streak Sunday

News: Jacob Trouba opened the scoring in Sunday's 7-2 beatdown of the Stars with his eighth goal of the season.
Analysis: The tally snapped an 18-game goalless skid for Jacob Trouba, whose production has declined considerably since mid-January. While his future remains bright, such scoring droughts are common for young defenseman to endure in their first few seasons. Fantasy owners will hope that his goal Sunday sparks some renewed production from the 20-year-old.

Jets' Trouba On A Hot Streak

News: Jacob Trouba picked up an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Carolina.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba has nine points in his last 10 games. That's good for a forward, much less a defensemen. Though he's young, it seems he's supplanted Tobias Enstrom as the team's playmaking blueliner. Fantasy owners should take note of his progress for both the immediate and distant future.

Jets' Trouba Notches Two Helpers

News: Jacob Trouba picked up two assists to go with a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Nashville.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba has been held without a point in more than two games straight just once in January. He's matured as the year has progressed and that could mean big time second half dividends for fantasy owners who drafted the youngster.

Jets' Trouba Comes Up Huge In Saturday Win

News: Jacob Trouba scored two goals, including the game-winner in overtime to dispatch the Oilers by a 3-2 count Saturday.
Analysis: While the second goal ended up being the more pivotal of his two scores, Jacob Trouba's tally five minutes into the third period may have been most impressive, as it came short-handed. Despite missing over a month earlier in the season with a neck injury, Trouba's eight goals still put him in the top 15 of all NHL defensemen. The rookie is already showing potential to be an upper-tier player at his position and could make for an interesting keeper choice in dynasty leagues.

Jets' Trouba Finds Net Against Penguins

News: Jacob Trouba scored his fourth goal of the season in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba now has points in five of his last six games. He's perhaps the most promising young player on the Jets' roster alongside Mark Scheifele. He's a year or two away from being a fantasy stud but he may be worth monitoring right now in deeper leagues.

Trouba Extends Point Streak In Jets' Loss

News: Jacob Trouba picked up an assist in a 4-3 loss to Ottawa on Thursday.
Analysis: That's four points (one goal) in as many games for the young defenseman. While most owners would love to see the TOI continually eclipse 25 minutes a game, it's tough to knock a guy who has nearly doubled his season (and career) totals in just over a week.

Jets' Trouba Spectacular In Win

News: Jacob Trouba picked up an assist and went plus-4 in Friday's 6-4 win over the Wild.
Analysis: He also finished the game with four shots on goal, three hits and 24:49 of ice time. After returning from a neck injury in late November, Jacob Trouba now has seven points in 12 games in the month of December. The 19-year-old rookie is an elite fantasy hockey defenseman in the making.

Jets' Trouba Scores Second Career Goal

News: Jacob Trouba managed a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Florida Panthers.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba also finished with a plus-1 rating in the game. He now has six points in the month of December after managing just two during the rest of the season. It is clear he's more consistent and he's outplaying teammate Tobias Enstrom offensively these days. That's definitely something that fantasy owners should think about moving forward.

Jets' Trouba Has Goal, Assist During Friday's Win

News: Jacob Trouba scored a goal and assisted on another during the Jets' win over the Panthers on Friday.
Analysis: The defenseman scored his second goal of the season midway through the first period to tie the game and then assisted on another late in the period as the Jets jumped out to a quick 3-1 lead before the first intermission. He now has two goals and six assists on the season.

Jets' Trouba Notches Two Assists

News: Jacob Trouba had two assists Monday versus the Rangers.
Analysis: These are Jacob Trouba's first points in his four games since returning from injury. He only has four points in 12 games, and he only has 18 shots on goal. The young defenseman is considered a good prospect, but he's clearly not ready to really contribute yet.

Jets Activate Trouba From IR

News: Jacob Trouba (neck) was activated from injured reserve by the Jets on Monday.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba was originally considered a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Devils, but with his activation from IR, it appears he's ready to go. It will be the first game action for Trouba since Oct. 18.

Jets' Trouba To Be Game-Time Call Monday

News: Jacob Trouba (neck) will be a game-time decision Monday against the Devils, Rick Ralph of TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba has been on the shelf for more than a month with the neck sprain, but he was recently cleared for contact and it sounds like he has a chance to return Monday. The 19-year-old defenseman averaged more than 21 minutes in his first eight games of the season, but had just two points (1G, 1A) and two penalty minutes.

Jets' Trouba Cleared For Contact In Practice

News: Jacob Trouba was spotted wearing a contact jersey at practice today according to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba practiced on Tuesday but was not allowed to be hit, so the fact he's in a contact jersey two days later is a good sign. He can move the puck, skate well and he's young. Fantasy owners may want to stash him as a possible midseason sleeper option.

Jets' Trouba Skates During Workout Monday

News: Jacob Trouba (neck) skated with teammates during Monday's optional workout, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba shed more light on his neck injury following the session, saying that it wasn't a sprain but rather torn ligaments in his neck that have kept him out of commission for over a month. The young defenseman appears close to ditching his no-contact jersey for practices, but until he does so, he'll remain without a definite return timetable.

Jets' Trouba Make Strides; Return Still Uncertain

News: Jacob Trouba (neck) is doing better since suffering his neck injury earlier this season, but there is still no timetable for his return, according to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba hurt himself just eight games into the season tripping into the end boards. Though he only has two points on the season, he's one of the best young prospects the Jets have. That said, he's a ways away from fantasy relevance.

Jets' Trouba Unlikely To Practice For A Week

News: Jacob Trouba (neck) is not expected to join practices for another week or so, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba took part in a light practice last weekend and has been skating on his own, but it looks like it's still going to be a little while before he's cleared for contact. Everything has gone downhill for Trouba since his two-point Opening Night, as he was scoreless in his other seven games before sustaining the neck injury.

Jets' Trouba Gets Light Practice Work In

News: Jacob Trouba (neck) took part in a light practice Friday, the Winnipeg Sun's Ken Wiebe reports.
Analysis: Though Jacob Trouba merely skated slowly and passed the puck with the Jets' strength coach, it represents the first tangible sign of progress in his recovery from a sprained neck. He is still without a concrete timetable for his return, which will likely be dependent on how many more activities he incorporates into his practice regimen in the coming days.

Jets' Trouba Not Close To A Return

News: Jacob Trouba (neck) has not resumed skating and is not close to a return, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Though Jacob Trouba has been seen recently without his brace, he still has a ways to go in his recovery from a neck sprain. The initial timetable for his return was set at two weeks, but it sounds like Trouba will be out well beyond then.

Jets Place Trouba On IR With Neck Sprain

News: The Jets placed Jacob Trouba on injured reserve Saturday with a neck sprain.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba will wear a neck brace for two weeks and then be re-evaluated then. There is no specific timetable for his recovery. Trouba crashed head-first into the boards Friday night and was taken off the ice on a stretcher. He was released from the hospital later that evening but the Jets have been pretty tight-lipped about the injury.
