During Saturday’s Headlines segment, Friedman reported that the team and the pending restricted free agent have amicably decided to hold off on negotiations until the season ends.
“I don’t want to make any crazy headlines out of this, but I’ve heard amicably that the Jets and Trouba, although nobody is commenting, have decided they will wait until after the season for any more talks,” said Friedman.
Trouba has developed into a key piece of Winnipeg’s blue-line since being drafted ninth overall in 2012.
He plays the third-most minutes of any Jets skater, averaging 20:16 a game. He also leads the team with 54 blocked shots.
Trouba scored 29 points in 65 games during his rookie season, a total which dropped to 22 last year. He has seven points in 27 games this year.
