4:04PM: The Rangers have announced that they have come to terms with Jacob Trouba on a seven-year contract.
His cap hit is $8 million and the deal includes some no-move protection.
His contract appears to include a limited no-trade clause beginning in 2024-25 that allows Trouba to submit a list of 15 teams he would not accept a trade to.
Trouba was an RFA and scheduled for an arbitration hearing next week.
The Rangers acquired Trouba from Winnipeg in June for the 20th pick in the 2019 draft and Neal Pionk.
Adam Rotter: It took a bit longer than expected but this was the expected outcome for the Rangers and Trouba. The Rangers have their Ryan McDonagh replacement locked up and hope that Trouba can have the same type of impact that their former captain did. It’s about fair market value for someone like Trouba and easily what he would have gotten as a UFA next summer. Will he live up to being an $8 million dollar a year player? We can’t know for sure but it’s much safer to make that kind of bet on a 25-year like Trouba then it would have been on a 30-year old McDonagh. Now with Trouba signed the Rangers need to figure out how the rest of the D will shake out and see who will, and more importantly who won’t, be with the team this season.
