Rangers Roundup: Trouba art, TV schedule released, and more
The latest New York Rangers news looks at Jacob Trouba’s latest art project, the team bonds at Giants vs Cowboys, and much more.
Let’s check in on the Blueshirts’ buzz.
Jacob Trouba art
Rangers captain Jacob Trouba revealed this summer he has a passion for art and is now sharing it with everyone.
In a series of Instagram posts this weekend, Trouba wrote: “Sharing some of my art from the summer. A series of 8 pieces. Piece 6 of 8. 94” x 72” oil, acrylic, and emulsion on canvas.”
This past July, Trouba and his wife Kelly announced The Trouba Creative Expressions Art Program which showcases the artwork of young adults living with epilepsy.
“We wanted to do something with epilepsy and not many people know but I paint in the summer,” Trouba said.
Trouba, 29, registered 30 points in 82 games last season for the Rangers. His 196 shot blocks and 218 hits were tops on the team.
Rangers take in Giants game
The Blueshirts showed up to support the New York Giants last night at MetLife Stadium. Unfortunately, the Dallas Cowboys put on a spectacle by defeating the hometown team by a 40-0 final score.
Still, it was great to see the boys getting together and having some fun before the start of training camp.
MetLife Stadium will also play host to the Rangers vs Islanders Stadium Series contest set for February 18. Additional info on the game here.
