Rangers Agree to Contract Terms With Trade Pickup Jacob Trouba

Trouba, the former Winnipeg Jets defencemen who was drafted by the team ninth overall in 2012, signed a seven-year deal with an annual average value of $8 million on Friday.

The 25-year-old defenseman was a restricted free agent and was scheduled to have a salary arbitration hearing on July 25. Trouba was traded to NY for defenseman Neal Pionk and a first-round pick (No. 20) in the 2019 NHL Draft on June 17.

"They're building a victor tends to be the vibe I've gotten", Trouba told media after getting traded. It's a very first-class organization.

He didn't want to sign a long-term deal in Winnipeg because his fiancee is about to start her residency in her quest to become a doctor in the United States.

The New York Rangers have announced that they have signed the Rochester native to a new contract, and Hockey Night in Canada's Elliotte Friedman says it's a big one.

Originally the No. 9 overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, Trouba spent one season with the University of MI before turning pro. When that expired, he and the Jets required arbitration to settle on a one-year, $5.5-million pact.

Trouba, 25, spent the last six seasons with the Jets.
