"He's a very good player right now for us," Jets head coach Claude Noel told the Winnipeg Sun. "What can you say? He played with a lot of poise, he shakes off mistakes. He plays with a large amount of confidence. Watch him play, watch the details in his game.
"He skates, he manages the net real well, makes smart decisions. He's just playing very well."
Trouba, who has played in at least 20 minutes per game in five of his six games this season, has also impressed his teammates.
"The guy is fantastic, he's been doing an unbelievable job," Jets backup goalie Al Montoya told the Sun. "There's hiccups along the way, like there are for all of us, but he's acting like a true veteran out there for us. To see him play those minutes at those kind of levels has been great.
"When you step outside and think that this is a 19-year-old kid that was just in college, it's phenomenal."
Drafted ninth-overall by the Jets in the 2012 NHL Draft, Trouba has collected one goal and one assist in six games so far this season.
The native of Rochester, Michigan, knows he still has plenty to learn at the NHL level, but he's eager to do so.
"The more games you get under your belt, obviously the more comfortable you'll be with knowing what to expect," Trouba told the Sun. "I'm just trying to do whatever they ask of me, whatever situation they put me out, I'm going to try and do my best to do whatever I can to help the team."
