Rangers acquire Trouba from Jets for Pionk, 1st round pick

The New York Rangers sped up their rebuilding effort Monday by acquiring offensive-minded defenseman Jacob Trouba from the Winnipeg Jets.

New York sent young defenseman Neal Pionk and the 20th overall pick in the draft to Winnipeg for Trouba. The 25-year-old gives the rebuilding Rangers a legitimate top-pairing blue liner to help their climb back toward being playoff contenders.

"When we're out there trying to improve the team, we're looking for players that will fit into what we're doing," Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton said on a conference call Monday night. "Does it accelerate it? We'll see. But we're certainly getting a really good player that we've coveted for a while. It fits with what we're doing, and we'll see where it takes us."
