RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Trouba's solid future as a stay-at-home defenseman was never in doubt. It's been his offense that has been overshadowed. If Hainsey walks (he is an UFA), Trouba could have a major impact in Winnipeg this season. It is important to note that both Trouba and fellow Jet prospect Mark Scheifele attended Gary Roberts' High Performance Centre this past summer and, physically at least, both will be in great shape for training camp and ready for expanded roles. If someone in your league views Trouba as merely a high-end shut-down defender, get him now before it's too late.
Trouba will play for the University of Michigan in 2012-2013, leaving him with no fantasy potential for the coming season. Remember his name when he signs his first professional contract.
