Interesting for Trouba and the Jets with options.
Were Trouba to come to the decision to turn pro, he would contact the Jets to state his intentions.
The Jets would then have to sign him to a contract. If the two parties were unable to come to an agreement, Trouba would have the option of returning to college. Technically, a college player cannot hire an agent and negotiate with a pro team or his eligibility will be forfeited. Discussions have to be handled carefully and follow protocol to protect the player. If Winnipeg was able to reach a deal with Trouba, they
could then send him to their AHL affiliate or put him on their NHL roster.
Sending Trouba to the St. John's IceCaps would require the player to sign an amateur tryout contract in conjunction with his entry-level contract. An ATO will ruin his college eligibility and it's likely Trouba and
his agent will want a maximum entry-level deal.
