The Trouba family issued a statement via the Michigan Hockey Twitter account:
“There is absolutely no truth or merit to the recent media reports that the Kitchener Rangers have offered Jacob any remuneration. We have the utmost respect for the Kitchener Rangers and those that choose the CHL as an option, but Jacob will be attending the University of Michigan next fall as a student athlete.”
Let that be the end of it. Glad the family issued a statement and glad it went in our favor. Go Blue!
