The deal reached Friday with Trouba, 25, is for seven years and $56 million U.S., with an $8 million salary cap hit for the upcoming season.

The Rangers acquired Trouba's restricted free agent rights last month in a trade that saw the Jets receive a first-round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft - who they used to select Ville Heinola 20th overall - and fellow RFA d-man Neal Pionk, who is scheduled for an arbitration hearing next week.

The Jets traded Trouba after they were unable to come to terms with him on a long-term contract.

This past season, the longtime Compuware youth hockey standout played in all 82 games with the Jets, registering eight goals and 42 assists for 50 total points. He has appeared in 408 career National Hockey League games over six seasons, registering 42 goals and 137 assists for a total of 179 points - as well as a career +37 rating.

"They're building a victor tends to be the vibe I've gotten", Trouba told media after getting traded. Trouba's contract includes $22 million worth of signing bonuses paid off over the first three seasons, per PuckPedia, and per CapFriendly a no-move clause from '20-'21 through '23-'24, then a limited no-trade clause in years 6 (15 teams) and 7 (12 teams). It's a very first-class organization. He is expected to anchor the team's defence. "We want to ultimately get to the Stanley Cup".
