Another option open to Trouba and the Jets is the AHL. Since he wasn't drafted out of the CHL he would be eligable to play in the AHL next year if the Jets thought it would be in his best interest to develope their. Now most college players don't want to leave college early unless it is to go straight to the NHL, but the Jets may confince him.
