This trade comes hot off the heels of the San Jose Sharks signing Erik Karlsson to a monster eight-year, $92 million dollar extension and it is a move that adds considerable star power to the Rangers blueline. The New York Rangers have always been rumoured to be the front-runners to land the big blueliner and the teams made it official on Monday.

The Jets traded the defenceman to the New York Rangers on Monday for defenceman Neal Pionk, and the Rangers' first round draft pick (20th overall) in the 2019 NHL Draft.

The draft pick originally belonged to the Jets, who sent it to the Rangers in exchange for Kevin Hayes last season.

The NHL Draft, which is set for this weekend in Vancouver, just got a little bit more exciting for Jets fans.

Trouba is just the beginning of what is expected to be a busy offseason for NY.

His replacement in Winnipeg, Pionk, is coming off his first full season in the big leagues, which saw him post 26 points through 73 games.

Trouba has spent the past six seasons with the Jets, who drafted the Rochester, Mich., native ninth overall back in 2012.

The 23-year-old from Omaha, Neb., split the 2017-18 season between the Rangers and the American Hockey League before joining NY full time last season. For his career, he has 42 goals and 137 assists.
