NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Rangers have agreed to terms with restricted free agent defenseman Jacob Trouba, who they acquired from Winnipeg in a major offseason trade.
The deal reached Friday with Trouba, 25, is for seven years and $56 million, with an $8 million salary cap hit for the upcoming season. He is expected to anchor the team’s defense.
A 2012 first-round draft pick by the Jets, Trouba set career highs in points (50) and assists (42) last season.
A 6-foot-3, 202 pounds, Trouba is a workhorse defenseman especially adept at blocking shots. But the Rangers believe he has plenty of upside offensively.
For his six-year career, Trouba has 42 goals, 179 points and a plus-37 rating.
