Jets' Trouba eager to return, face Devils' Merrill

NEWARK, N.J. -- Winnipeg Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba is set to make his return to the lineup on Monday when his team begins a six-game road trip against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center.

"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."

Bylsma impressed with Canadiens' Galchenyuk

MONTREAL -- After a 27-point rookie season, Montreal Canadiens forward Alex Galchenyuk is showing he's the real deal again with 16 points in his first 23 games of 2013-14.

With Montreal hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night at Bell Centre, Galchenyuk had a chance to get noticed in person for Olympic consideration with USA Olympic coach Dan Bylsma behind the Penguins bench.

But according to Bylsma, Galchenyuk has been on his radar for the past three years. If he had it his way, Bylsma would've been coaching Galchenyuk for the Penguins. He first met the Canadiens rising young star at the 2012 NHL Research and Development Camp in Toronto and was instantly impressed.

"I met Alex a couple summers ago at the NHL Development camp when he was a prospect and 17," Bylsma said. "Two-and-a-half days there in Toronto and I was fortunate to coach him there. We kind of had our eyes on those players when they were going into their draft year."

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
