The Montreal Canadiens and Winnipeg Jets are reportedly in discussions regarding a potential trade deal for Pierre-Luc Dubois, as per renowned NHL insider Elliotte Friedman. The 24-year-old winger has had an impressive season with the Jets, and the Canadiens are eager to bring him on board sooner rather than later.
Elliotte Friedman shared some insight into the ongoing negotiations between the Jets and the Canadiens, stating, “Jets have talked to the Canadiens on and off about Dubois; we know that Dubois is going to end up there 95%. Is there some way we can make a deal so the Canadiens get him earlier, and we get something we want? They’ve talked about that.” This statement indicates that the trade talks have been ongoing and that the Canadiens are highly likely to acquire Dubois in the near future.
In 66 games with the Winnipeg Jets this season, Pierre-Luc Dubois has been in excellent form. He has scored 25 goals and recorded 33 assists, totaling 58 points. As a 24-year-old winger, Dubois has showcased his offensive abilities and has become an attractive target for the Montreal Canadiens.
Pierre-Luc Dubois is set to become a restricted free agent (RFA) this summer. Dubois only wants Montreal.
