News:Jacob Trouba is not expected to play more than five games for the Jets this season, the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Limiting their 2012 first-round draft pick to five games will preserve the first year of his entry level contract, allowing the Jets to keep him for an extra season with the smaller price tag. However, the 19-year-old defenseman is expected to play for team USA at the World Hockey Championship next month, so keep an eye on him as he faces some stiffer competition than he did in college earlier this year.
News:Jacob Trouba agreed to an entry-level contract with the Jets on Tuesday.
Analysis:Jacob Trouba, the Jets' 2012 first-round pick, will join the club after tallying 29 points (12G, 17A) and 88 PIM in 37 games with the University of Michigan. It remains to be seen if he will join the big club this season, but expect him to begin his professional career with AHL St. John's.
