No stall for Trouba

IT'S a starting point.

Due to injuries and different additions, plus the return to the ice this week of defenceman Zach Redmond, all the stalls are occupied in the Jets' locker-room at the MTS Centre.

So rookie Jacob Trouba, who signed an entry-level contract this week, began his stint with the team in a temporary setup -- on a fold-up chair near the remote-control and bubble-gum shelf, in front of the tape drawers with his nameplate affixed just under the cable box.

Trouba, 19, was Winnipeg's first-round pick, ninth overall, in last June's draft and decided to turn pro after one season at the University of Michigan.


Wheeler deemed OK

HE didn't skate at Sunday's optional practice, but the Jets said right-winger Blake Wheeler, briefly felled by a high late check from Philadelphia's Scott Hartnell in Saturday's third period, is fine.

"I don't think there's anything there," Jets head coach Claude Noel said, asked about a possible injury.

The team also said Sunday the return of forwards Jim Slater and Anthony Peluso, both out with suspected broken hands, is not imminent.

Noel listed each as still week-to-week.
