Trouba agreed to terms on a seven-year, $56 million contract with the Rangers on Friday.
Trouba was acquired by New York from Winnipeg in June and has now tied himself to the club for the next seven years. With this deal, the 25-year-old becomes the highest paid blueliner on the Rangers and trails only Henrik Lundqvist ($8.5 million) and Artemi Panarin ($11.6 million) in terms of annual cap hit. Clearly, team brass believes the Michigan native can repeat his 2018-19 campaign, in which he set career highs in assists (42), points (50) and shots (162).
Trouba has filed for salary arbitration, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.
Trouba had his best campaign yet as a pro in 2018-19, setting career highs in points (50) and shots on goal (162) while averaging nearly 23 minutes of ice time per contest in 82 appearances. The former Jet is definitely due for a raise on the $5.5 million he made last season, but it remains to be seen if he'll be able to procure one through negotiations with the Rangers or if it will require the assistance of a neutral arbitrator.
