• After completing his second season with the U.S. National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor in 2011-12, Trouba is committed to play at the University of Michigan in the fall of 2012.

• He was the youngest player on Team USA at the 2012 World Junior Championship, recording three assists in six games.

• In 2010-11, Trouba played 37 games for the U.S. Under-17 team before being called up for the final 21 games with the NTDP’s Under-18 team.

• He has won two gold medals at the World Under-18 Championships (2011, 2012). In 2012, Trouba posted three points (1-2--3) and a plus-five rating. In 2011, he scored the opening goal of the gold medal game en route to a 4-3 overtime win. Trouba also played for the U.S. at the 2011 Under-17 World Hockey Challenge, winning silver after recording nine points (2-7--9) in six games.

• Fellow NHL Draft prospect Patrick Sieloff (ranked No. 34) is a longtime friend and Trouba’s defensive partner -- the two players have competed on the same team since playing minor hockey for the Compuware organization.

• Trouba first started skating at the age of four following in his brother T.J.’s footsteps -- “I didn’t like it at first. The first time I skated, I kept falling and crying that I wanted to get off the ice. My dad wouldn’t let me; he made me stick with it and try it out. I ended up loving it so he gets credit for that.”
