Jacob Trouba found out who he'd play in his first game with the New York Rangers, and he has some questions about it.
The Rangers defenseman shared a pseudo-conspiracy theory after finding out he'd be facing off against his former team, the Winnipeg Jets, in his first home game at Madison Square Garden on Oct. 3.
Trouba spent his first six NHL seasons with the Jets but was traded to the Rangers for the No. 20 pick at the 2019 NHL Draft and defenseman Neal Pionk on Monday. He said goodbye to Winnipeg with a heartfelt picture montage on Instagram on Thursday.
Trouba and Pionk aren't the only players facing off against his former team in the upcoming opener. Brendan Lemieux, who the Rangers acquired from Winnipeg on Feb. 25, is also likely to meet his former team when the Jets play New York.
The NHL unveiled each team's home opener Friday. The Jets will also be the opponent for the New Jersey Devils home opener Oct. 5 before playing their first home game at Bell MTS Centre against the Minnesota Wild on Oct. 10.
