The Rangers have signed Jacob Trouba to a seven-year contract worth $56.0 million ($8.0M AAV).
The Rangers acquired the RFA defenseman from the Jets for Neal Pionk and a 2019 first-round pick on June 18th and signed him through the 2025-26 season. Trouba is coming off of the best year of his career, posting 50 points (8G / 42A) in 82 games with Winnipeg. Trouba immediately becomes the Rangers best defenseman and should see more minutes than he ever saw with the Jets.
The Rangers have acquired Jacob Trouba from the Jets for Neal Pionk and the No.20 overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft.
Trouba is a restricted free agent on July 1st but gives the Rangers a bonafide first-pairing defenseman, something they played the entire 2018-19 season without. After missing a combined 49 games in 2017 and 2018, Trouba appeared in all 82 games last year and set a new career-high with 50 points (8G / 42A). Trouba will log massive minutes for the Rangers next season and helps accelerate their rebuild, which was also aided by landing the No.2 overall pick in this year’s draft.
Trouba (undisclosed) will not play on Saturday.
Trouba will be back in the Jets lineup on Thursday.
Trouba was given some rest the other night but will draw back in tonight vs. the Flames. Trouba has two assists in his last two games since returning from a five-game absence and has totalled 24 points (3G / 21A) in 54 games this season.
Trouba will be rested Tuesday in Montreal.

Trouba is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with an ankle injury.
Trouba suffered the ankle injury late in overtime of the Jets’ shootout loss to the Ducks before the All Star break. Trouba and Josh Morrissey have been the Jets’ go-to shutdown pairing this season so the absence of Trouba will test their blueline. With Trouba out until mid-March, Tucker Poolman is expected to be back in the Jets’ lineup on Tuesday.
