How close was Jacob Trouba to being dealt to the Red Wings? He won't say

How close did Jacob Trouba come to being dealt to the Red Wings last year?

"I don't know. That's not a question for me," the Jets defenseman said with a laugh on Tuesday.

Trouba, who grew up in Rochester, held out last year and asked for a trade. He ultimately signed a two-year contract worth $3 million per season.

This season, he has two goals and seven assists in 27 games for the Western Conference-leading Jets.
