Pierre-Luc Dubois was drafted third overall in the 2016 NHL Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets. The team seems like his versatility at left wing and center and although he hasn’t appeared in a game yet for Columbus, it is very possible Dubois could see the ice at some point in 2017-2018 for them.
He played in 20 games for the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles (QMJHL) before being traded to Blainville-Boisbriand Aramada (QMJHL). Dubois played in 28 regular season for them and in 19 postseason games. His regular season stats were 21 goals and 34 assists and his plus/minus was 17. In the playoffs, his stats were 9 goals and 13 assists.
Dubois was one of the reasons why Blainville-Boisbriand Aramada reached the QMJHL finals, but they lost to Saint John Sea Dogs in four games. As of right now, Dubois isn’t projected to be on Columbus top four lines to start the season, but he will definitely compete for a spot come training camp.
Once he cracks the lineup, Dubois can make Columbus a dangerous team once again in 2017-2018.
