The winning score came after Blake Wheeler missed on a breakaway but regained control of the puck in the corner. He sent a pass to the crease, where Trouba shook off defender Anton Belov and put it past Ilya Bryzgalov for the game-winner.
Wheeler finished with two assists and Mark Scheifele scored for the Jets, who recorded their third straight win under new head Coach Paul Maurice.
Ondrej Pavelec stopped 20 shots.
