Strong showing in his first regular season game.
Jacob Trouba's first NHL game
also looks like most minutes on ice...obviously has the trust of his coach
There's already a good bit of comment/discussion about Trouba in the other hockey thread. A second one is probably a bit much.
I didn't follow the hockey open thread last night, and I don't feel like picking through all of it. A little info on Trouba by itself is nice.
Time to get #TradeEverythingForTrouba to start trending on twitter.
So Trouba is The MAN!?!? So fucking good and for most of the season last year was the only bright spot
My son and Jacob were on a tournament baseball team when they were 12. Not that long ago, in the grand scheme of things and he's already in the pros. amazing
I watched the second and third periods of the Jets game and Trouba was easily the second best defenseman behind Byfuglien. He was on both the PK and second unit PP. He was on the Ice for the last minute and change while the Oilers net was empty. Basically, he is the real deal. Could be the best Wolverine in the NHL by the end of the season (Cammi, Patches, Hagelin, and JMFJ are all right there).
he was named the #1 star as well! Not a bad evening.
Kid is definitely NHL ready if we can judge anything from the first game. Very impressed with how he looked.
...F*** the Jets

Fan? I thought they were imaginary, like unicorns or dinosaurs.
