The Winnipeg Jets' search to find a suitable trade partner for Jacob Trouba appears to be on.

The team is reportedly seeking a young left-shot defenseman in exchange for the 22-year-old, but while the market appears to be thin, at least one suitor had serious interest this offseason.

TSN's Darren Dreger joined TSN 1200 radio on Wednesday where he noted the Detroit Red Wings made an offer for Trouba in the summer that ultimately failed to pan out.

"I know that Cheveldayoff received several offers during the summer. I know that one came from Detroit," said Dreger. "I'm told that it involved two of their higher-level forwards, and Holland wasn't willing or able to stomach that. As much as the Detroit Red Wings need defense, they can't move out multiple pieces of scoring, otherwise they fill one hole and dig another.

"But none of the offers that were made on Trouba were obviously good enough, or we wouldn't be having this conversation. Perhaps he'd be on to greener pastures, from his mindset."

In the meantime Trouba will not be attending Jets training camp as he awaits a trade out of Winnipeg.
