Rangers center Jacob Trouba quickly emerged as the alternate captain for the past two seasons. Trouba is also one of the most respected men in the Rangers locker room.
The 27-year old joined forces with Chris Kreider and Mika Zibanejad as the three players from the Rangers who are vocal in the locker room. When there’s a loss, those are the guys to speak up and lift their team.
Trouba has three assists in 13 games so far this season. He is ranked within the top-50 NHL defensemen in ice time per game. Trouba wants to continue to learn how to be a better leader.
The Rangers are currently 8-3 in the season.
