Pierre Luc-Dubois Rumors

Pierre-Luc Dubois is going to Winnipeg for Patrik Laine

10:41AM: Columbus is trading center Pierre-Luc Dubois and a third-round pick to Winnipeg for Patrik Laine and center Jack Roslovic. (Dreger, LeBrun)

Roslovic, 24 next week, was the 25th overall pick in 2015 by Winnipeg and like Dubois and Laine, had requested a trade.

In 2016, Laine went second to Winnipeg and Dubois went third to Columbus.

Dubois is signed through next season, while Laine is a RFA after this year.

The Rangers were said to be one of the teams with interest in Dubois.

Adam Rotter: The idea of Dubois going from Columbus to the Rangers always seems far-fetched, but the idea of Winnipeg sending him to the Rangers in a year or two, if he doesn’t want to stay in Winnipeg, could be more realistic. That is far down the line though and by then the Rangers may have already found a center to slot in behind Mika Zibanejad. As we saw last night, Filip Chytil could very well be that guy.
