Trouba, 25, spent the last six seasons with the Jets. He had eight goals and 42 assists in 82 games last season. When it became clear the Jets couldn’t sign Trouba to a long-term deal, he was traded to the Rangers for defenceman Neal Pionk, and a first round draft pick.

The Jets selected Trouba with the ninth overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft.
