Report: Jacob Trouba Doesn't Want to be Traded from the New York Rangers

The New York Rangers are reportedly open to moving captain Jacob Trouba, however Trouba isn't exactly thrilled by the idea. Word is there's a family dynamic involved here.

According to reports in the NY Post, Trouba prefers to stay in New York as his wife's current hospital residency is among the many factors in his decision. Trouba owns a 15-team no-trade clause and has submitted the list of teams to GM Chris Drury.

No word yet if the New York Islanders are interested and if there's potential for a move between the two rivals. The New Jersey Devils have filled out their defense core and are likely not interested at this time.

Trouba has two years left on his current contract, making $8 million against the cap through the 2025-26 season. Last season he recorded 22 points in 69 games and added another seven points in 16 Stanley Cup Playoff games. Trouba plays the game as hard as anyone, isn't afraid to muck it up in the dirty areas of the ice and do whatever it takes for his team to win. 

The Detroit Red Wings are reportedly interested and there's been rumblings about advanced trade talks, however at this point Trouba's preference is to remain in New York, close to home, so everything can work out for everyone involved.
