Winnipeg Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba suffered a scary injury Friday night against the St. Louis Blues.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Jeremy Rutherford reported the 19-year-old was attempting to hit Jordan Leopold along the boards, only to miss and hit head-first against the boards.

Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 reported that Trouba had movement in his legs, but the spinal board was brought out as a precaution.

 Updates for Monday, Nov. 25:

Mike G. Morreale of NHL.com has an update on Jacob Trouba's status:

"I'm not hiding the fact that Jacob Trouba is going to play," Jets coach Claude Noel said after his team's morning skate.

Trouba has missed the past 17 games with a neck injury. To make room for the 2012 first-round pick (No. 9), the Jets will likely list Adam Pardy as a healthy scratch.

Trouba likely will be paired with Grant Clitsome.

"I'm excited to get back into things and it'll take some time to get some timing back so I just have to keep it simple," Trouba said. "I just know I can't really get running around at the start, just stay in control and not get too excited I guess."
