NEW YORK, NY – Jacob Trouba had three points against his former team, and Artemi Panarin had a goal and an assist in the New York Rangers debut for both, a 6-4 win against the Winnipeg Jets at Madison Square Garden on Thursday.

It was the season opener for each team.

Trouba had a goal and two assists. Panarin had a goal and an assist.

The Rangers acquired Trouba in a trade with the Jets on June 17. They signed Panarin to a seven-year contract July 1.

“You think about [the first game] for so long building up to the season, and preseason games just don’t really do it, they’re not the same thing,” Trouba said. “Just getting it over with and kind of getting past it and being able to move on and start thinking about the rest of the games and getting your game to where you want to be is nice.”

As an aspiring professional hockey player, one of the most challenging things that both the athlete and family face is selecting the right person to help guide us through the journey.  For our family, this proved to be very true.  We considered it very fortunate that John was introduced and came to work with Kurt.  Since we began working with Kurt and his staff, they have given us guidance and sound advice every step of the way.  Kurt’s unparalleled knowledge of the hockey world and professional demeanor gave us the utmost confidence that John’s career is being managed properly.  We can’t imagine anyone else filling the role that he does for our family.  Lastly, we highly recommend Kurt and KO Sports to any young athlete that has the dream of becoming a professional hockey player.
