WINNIPEG - With the way he's playing right now, it's easy to lose sight of the fact Jacob Trouba is only 19-years-old and getting his first real taste of the NHL.

The Winnipeg Jets rookie defenceman certainly isn't playing like one in the early stages of the 2013-14 season.

As the Jets snapped a three-game losing streak with a 3-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday night, the man chosen ninth overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft was heavily involved, as his 26 minutes and 36 seconds led all players in ice time.

Name a situation and Trouba was on it.

At even strength, check.

On the power play, check.

On the penalty kill -- including an important 5-on-3 disadvantage during the second period -- check.

On the ice to protect a one-goal lead late in the game, check.
