July 19, 2019 - 4:36 pm

The Rangers have agreed to a long-term deal with defenseman Jacob Trouba, the team announced on Twitter Friday afternoon.

The contract is for seven years and $56 million, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

Trouba appeared in all 82 games for the Jets this past season, registering eight goals and 42 assists, along with a plus-eight rating.

The 2018-19 campaign saw him finish with career-highs in games played, assists and points.


In addition to his strong play on offense, Trouba ranked sixth in the NHL in blocked shots with 171.

The 6-foot-3, 203-pound blueliner is a true no. 1 defenseman, and at only 25-years-old, is entering the prime years of his career.

The Rangers acquired Trouba in a trade with Winnipeg on June 17 in exchange for defenseman Neal Pionk and the 20th overall selection in the 2019 NHL Draft.
