REVS 2012 Prospects List (Oct 3rd/11)
Today we examine the final #15ranked player from REVS 2012 Prospects List . Each player is unique in their own right and full of talent. The ranking does not reflect a mock draft of who a team may actually pick but rather who I would place as the best player available in that spot.
Born: Rochester, MN
2010/11 USHL Games 31 G 3 A 4 PTS 7 Plus/Minus -2
2011/12 USHL Games 8 G 0 A 3 PTS 3 Plus/Minus 3
Trouba has had a few scouts agree on a Cam Fowler type player with more of an edge. While I agree his style of play is similar, in no way has he produced like Cam has or likely will. I think it's mostly his laterally skating and break out passing that brings that comparison.
Jacob is considered very coachable and is always growing and learning as he grows into a high end defencemen. Trouba says “I gotta get better in all areas,But in the defensive zone I need to focus on my guy more.” Jacob has been rated at a higher ranking by many rankings but being he is more defensive of a player the offensive it may hurt his ranking in the top 15.
