Observations:

 

November 2014 – Jacob Trouba has been struggling out of the gate early this season with just three points in 14 games. It should be noted that late last season he also experienced a similar slump so it seems to have carried into this season. Keep an eye on him, as this year he may go through a slump. Long term, he is still a go-to option. –Kevin Won

March 2014 – Jacob Trouba has suffered a slump, only posting two points in the past ten games. Fantasy owners should now worry as Trouba is still a young defenceman and slumps are part of the growing process for a young hockey player. Trouba currently has 23 points in 49 games, which is very impressive for a rookie. Additionally, he provides in hits and blocks with 86 and 91 in each respective category. Expect him to be a multi-cat stud once he flourishes. -Kevin Won

 

 

January 2014 – Since an early injury that kept him out for the most of November, Jacob Trouba has settled into the NHL quite nicely. For the months of December and January, Trouba has tallied six goals and eight assists in 24 games along with 45 SOG, 43 hits, and 45 blocks. Look for Trouba to be a multi-category stud when he reaches his full potential. –Kevin Won

 

 

October 2013 – Jacob Trouba stole the show at the Jets’ season opener by capturing first star of the night versus the Oilers, with one goal (game-tying), one assist, two shots, and a plus/minus of two while logging over 25 minutes of ice time. He also logged three minutes of powerplay time. Trouba has arrived to the big show and did it in an amazing fashion. He
