Jacob Trouba's NHL break has just been extended by a few days.
The verdict is in from the NHL Department of Player Safety and as expected, Jacob Trouba has been suspended two games for his reckless hit on Mark Stone of the Ottawa Senators.
This means the Jets defender will miss Tuesday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, as well as thanks to the week long player's break the following Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild. Trouba will not be eligible to join the Jets lineup until their contest Friday, March 3rd against the St. Louis Blues.
