Not a hard concept to grasp. Just read or listen to what is being said.
Never mind the fact that Trouba himself made the decision to leave Michigan and go pro.

For all we know, if he's for whatever reason not adjusting to the NHL game, he'll probably be sent down to St. John's to work on his game.

Amen , can't fathom why anyone would question what he declares?

Chevy has said he has NO issue playing an 18 yer old if that player is ready , it is a player by player decision ,and in this case as I have said for long while Trouba would be ready after one year.

Chevy agrees. Playing at Michigan another year would not be best for either Trouba or the Jets.

Surprised he decided to go pro so soon. Figured he was staying in college at least one more year. I'll also be shocked if he actially gets any nhl playing time this season. Jets have lots of pressure on them right now, not sure if it's the right situation to throw a rookie into.

Would be shocked if he doesn't get games in this year.

@reporterchris: Jacob Trouba's entry-level deal with the #NHLJets includes a $92,500 signing bonus each of the three years.

Not a bad haul.

Well, I can't say that I'm all that surprised that Trouba signed with the Jets. It would've been nice to see him in the maize and blue for another year, but I guess he did what he felt was best for him.

I want to wish him all the best in Winnipeg and I hope you Jets fans will be keep me posted on Trouba's progress.

Not much to the press conference.

He will have the chance to get the most practise time as Winnipeg has their longest stretch of non game days this season coming up.

Michigan head coach Red Berenson isn't a big proponent of his players leaving early, but in THIS STORY, he feels that Trouba is ready to take the next step in his playing career. Definitely worth a read.

No, it's just the NHL games this season (2012-2013). The NHL game limit rule applies only to 18/19 year olds in their first season (and potentially to 18 year old signees in their second season).

In 2013-2014 a single game in either the NHL or AHL (or any professional league under loan) will burn up a year of ELC--or even if he missed the entire season due to an injury occurring during his employment as a hockey player.

2005 CBA details: (10 games prorated for this season to 6 games)
Quote:
(d) (i) In the event that an 18 year old or 19 year old Player signs an SPC
with a Club but does not play at least ten (10) NHL Games in the first season under that
SPC
, the term of his SPC and his number of years in the Entry Level System shall be
extended for a period of one (1) year, except that this automatic extension will not apply
to a Player who is 19 according to Section 9.2 by virtue of turning 20 between September
16 and December 31 in the year in which he first signs an SPC. Unless a Player and Club
expressly agree to the contrary, in the event a Player's SPC is extended an additional year
in accordance with this subsection, all terms of the SPC, with the exception of Signing
Bonuses, but including Paragraph 1 Salary, games played bonuses and Exhibit 5 bonuses,
shall be extended; provided, however, that the Player's Paragraph 1 Salary shall be
extended in all circumstances.

(ii) In the event that a Player signs his first SPC at age 18 and has had
his SPC extended pursuant to Subsection (i), and such Player does
not play at least ten (10) NHL Games in the second season under
that SPC, then the term of his SPC and his number of years in the
Entry Level System shall be extended for one (1) additional year.
Unless a Player and Club expressly agree to the contrary, in the
event a Player's SPC is extended an additional year in accordance
with this Subsection, all terms of the SPC, with the exception of
Signing Bonuses, but including Paragraph 1 Salary, games played
bonuses and Exhibit 5 bonuses, shall be extended; provided,
however, that the Player's Paragraph 1 Salary shall be extended in
all circumstances.

...

9.2 Age of Players. As used in this Article, "age," including "First SPC Signing
Age," means a Player's age on September 15 of the calendar year in which he signs an
SPC, regardless of his actual age on the date he signs such SPC.

He has some very tall bloodlines in his family , that is where the height increase stemmed from .

Judging from tv , he seems to be no more than 6-2 , but once he gets to Winnipeg we can guage that better .

Think his weight is a little concerning, the SUN listed him at 183, Postma is listed at 195 and he gets manhandled every game.

I've never understood this thinking. Guys at all sorts of weights are solid and heavy guys get leveled all the time. Would Postma suddenly start plowing guys at the blueline if he gained 10 pounds? I don't think so.

Look at Burmistrov, super physical kid. Light as a feather on the stat sheet. Ryan Callahan weighs 190. Matt Martin weighs 192. These are guys that are high in the league for hits.

It's a mentality (and Trouba has it) not something you can acquire from stepping on a scale.

Jacob's ability to physically engage will be the least of our worries both short and long term.

I like the way Bogo and Stu play at 215 plus, if you guys don't get that 183 is a little light to be an effective NHL D man I don't know what to say (unless he has the technical skill and positioning of Enstrom which I doubt).

Looking at his family I have no doubt he can and will get thicker. I am sure by training camp he will have 10 pounds of muscle added to whatever his weight is , a non issue for me.

He was officially measured at 6'2" and 187 lbs at the NHL scouting combine a year ago. Unless he's lost weight in the last year, I doubt that he is now 183 lbs.
