Trouba's future in Winnipeg in doubt?
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Winnipeg Jets have a big decision coming this off-season as it relates to defenseman Jacob Trouba's future with the organization.

According to the Ottawa Sun, the Jets and Trouba's camp are "nowhere close in contract talks."

Trouba, 22, is in the final year of his entry-level contract and can become a restricted free agent July 1 if he does not sign an extension beforehand.

The Sun suggests Trouba's new contract could see him earn between $4 million and $5 million per season, but Sun columnist Bruce Garrioch also notes "the belief is his camp's demands are higher than that."

The Jets have been linked to New York Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic, who is expected to be traded this off-season to a team in the Western Conference. However, it has been widely reported that the Islanders would want more than Trouba in return.

Contract discussions are expected to pick up next month.

Meanwhile, the Sun also reports that Jets head coach Paul Maurice's job is safe and Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff will not make a change behind the bench after the season.
