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.

Jets' Trouba (Upper Body) Will Play Wednesday

News: Jacob Trouba (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve and will play Wednesday against the Blue Jackets, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba was cleared to play after completing the Jets' morning skate without incident. He'll form a pair with Jay Harrison and suit up for his first game since Dec. 13. The Jets initially expected Trouba to be out until February, so his early return certainly qualifies as a welcome development. The blueliner produced four goals and eight assists over 31 games prior to suffering the injury.

Jets' Trouba Nears Return

News: Jacob Trouba (upper body) could play as soon as Wednesday against the Blue Jackets, the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba, who has missed 16 games, practiced at full speed Tuesday and a decision on whether he is cleared to play against Columbus will arrive Wednesday morning. Prior to suffering his injury, Trouba had recorded 12 points in 31 games.

Jets' Trouba (Upper Body) Skates With Team

News: Jacob Trouba (upper body) skated with the team Thursday morning, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba skated as a fill-in for Evander Kane, who was given the morning off. While the blueliner won't return to game action Thursday, he's clearly coming along quicker than the Jets expected. The Jets initially expected him to be out until February, but coach Paul Maurice opened up the possibility Thursday that the youngster may be able to return before the All-Star break. He'll likely continue to increase his on-ice activities in the coming days in order to make a push for his activation.

Jets Move Trouba To IR

News: Jacob Trouba (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: It's just a procedural move to clear a roster spot for Jay Harrison, who was acquired from the Hurricanes in a trade Thursday. Jacob Trouba will be out until February after sustaining the upper-body injury over the past weekend.

Jets' Trouba Out Until February

News: Head coach Paul Maurice announced Tuesday that Jacob Trouba will be sidelined until February due to an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba's injury appeared minor when it was revealed Monday, but it turns out his setback is more significant than originally thought, even though details remain uncertain. Trouba had been playing well of late -- including a stretch where he had nine points in eight games -- but fantasy owners will have to look for anther defenseman to take his place for the next several weeks. He's the third top-four defenseman to succumb to a significant injury in the span of two weeks.

Jets' Trouba Day-To-Day

News: Jacob Trouba (undisclosed) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Sabres, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: There's no word on what's ailing the blueliner, but he should be able to work through the issue before Tuesday's game. Keep an eye out for an update on his status after Tuesday's morning skate.

Jacob Trouba, D, WPG Jets' Trouba Stays Hot With Two Points

Jacob Trouba

Jets' Trouba Stays Hot With Two Points

News: Jacob Trouba added a pair of points, scoring a goal on one of his four shots and dishing out a helper in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Jacob Trouba's rounding into form after a slow start with five points in his last three games and nine in his last eight. The 20-year-old now has 12 points on the season, and should be considered as a fantasy option on the blue line.

12/4/2014

Jacob Trouba, D, WPG Jets' Trouba Explodes For Three Points

Jacob Trouba

Jets' Trouba Explodes For Three Points

News: Jacob Trouba exploded for a goal, two assists and five shots on goal in Wednesday's victory over the Oilers.
Analysis: The 20-year-old was one of the bigger fantasy disappointments over the season's first two months, but he's finally beginning to reward his owners for their patience. Wednesday's performance was his best of the season, and gives him a total of six points over his last four games. Now that he seems to be finding his scoring touch, Jacob Trouba is worth picking up in just about any format if he was dumped earlier in the season.

Jets' Trouba Notches Two Helpers

News: Jacob Trouba picked up a pair of assists on Evander Kane power-play goals -- the second an empty-netter -- in Tuesday's win over Columbus.
Analysis: It's not exactly front-page news, but Jacob Trouba does have three points over the last three games after totaling just three over his first 20 contests of the year. He's had a little bit of bad puck luck, but remains superbly talented and is skating major minutes -- 24:11 on Tuesday -- for the Jets.

Jets' Trouba Scores In Loss

News: Jacob Trouba scored his second goal of the year and added four PIM in Thursday's shootout loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: A nice fantasy stat line, but this was not Jacob Trouba's finest game on real ice, as he was charged with three giveaways, no takeaways and a double minor for roughing. With just three points in 14 games so far, his sophomore campaign is off to a slow start, well short of last year's pace.

Jacob Trouba, D, WPG Jets' Trouba Finally Gets Point

Jacob Trouba

Jets' Trouba Finally Gets Point

News: Jacob Trouba tallied his first point of the season -- a second-period goal -- in Tuesday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Big things were expected from Jacob Trouba heading into the campaign after he compiled 29 points in 65 games for the Jets as a 19-year-old, but he's been a disappointment to date. The lack of production hasn't been a huge drain to his plus/minus rating, but he'll need to begin showing more involvement offensively in order to justify a roster spot in shallower leagues.

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.

Jacob Trouba

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.

Jacob Trouba

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.
