Per Kevin Weekes, in a way that only Weekes can break news, Jacob Trouba is the next Rangers captain.
Trouba was rumored to be the next Rangers captain this offseason, when those plans were apparently nixed last second. It’s unclear why the plans were nixed last year, but whatever it was, the Rangers had a change of heart.
For those who love Trouba and what he brings on and off the ice, this is a great move. For those who hate Trouba, this just increased the odds he gets traded to Tampa in the next five years.
