Jacob Trouba Injury: Updates on Jets Star's Status, Likely Return Date
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.

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."
From the Winnipeg Jets' official Instagram:
Defenseman Jacob Trouba in good spirits this morning as he confirms a neck sprain that will require him to wear a brace for 2 weeks followed by more testing.
According to an official press release, Trouba has been placed on IR, and replaced on the active roster by defenseman Adam Pardy:
The Winnipeg Jets today announced they have recalled defenceman Adam Pardy from the St. John’s IceCaps of the American Hockey League. The Winnipeg Jets also announced they have placed defenceman Jacob Trouba on the Injured Reserve List retroactive to Oct. 18/13.

NHL.com shows how Trouba injury happened:

Trouba has played in each of Winnipeg's first eight games of the 2013-14 season, scoring a goal and notching an assist as well.
While not a key member of the team, the Jets don't want to see a young player get stretchered off the ice because of a head injury.
