Pierre-Luc Dubois

23-Year-Old CenterC
Winnipeg Jets
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Unhappy with his situation in Columbus, Dubois requested a trade and was eventually shipped to the Jets in January in exchange for a package which included another disgruntled star in Patrik Laine. Neither man fared well in their new homes, with Dubois posting just eight goals and 20 points in 41 games. Dubois will play the entirety of the upcoming campaign at age 23 and has a track record of proven success, but the early returns from a Winnipeg perspective weren't positive. The Jets are a very top-heavy offensive team and Dubois should once again slot in as the club's No. 2 center behind Mark Scheifele. There's legitimate rebound potential here and it would be shocking if Dubois' game doesn't improve to some extent, but don't overpay for past production. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $10 million contract with the Blue Jackets in December of 2020. Traded to the Jets in January of 2021.
Set new goal mark

May 3, 2022
Dubois racked up 28 goals this season, a new personal best, along with 32 assists and six game-winning goals.
ANALYSIS
While the Jets didn't have a single player feature in all 82 games this year, Dubois was the closest with 81. The natural center will be a restricted free agent his offseason and will no doubt feel he deserves a raise above his current $5 million AAV deal given his production this year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
Dubois took a step back last season, totaling 18 goals and 31 helpers in 70 games after racking up 27 goals and 34 assists in 82 contests in 2018-19, but he's still just 22 years old, so there's no reason to believe he won't be able to bounce back in his fourth NHL season in 2020-21. The third overall pick from 2016 is a solid contributor across the board, as he's essentially a lock for 20-plus goals, 30-plus assists, double-digit power-play points, 100-plus hits, 50-plus blocks and 50-plus PIM over the course of a full season, and those figures should only continue to improve as the youngster begins to enter his prime over the next few campaigns. That level of cross-category contributions will make Dubois worth a mid-round pick in this year's fantasy drafts.
The third overall pick in the 2016 draft acquitted himself well as the Blue Jackets' No. 1 center, scoring 27 goals and 61 points while playing all 82 games for the second straight season. Dubois plays a physical two-way game -- he's dished triple-digit hits in each of his two NHL campaigns -- but he's proving to be much more than just a forward who can chip in some complementary offense now and then. His off-the-charts hockey IQ and all-around skill set helps make his linemates better, and he's quickly become the player coach John Tortorella trusts the most. The Columbus offense is expected to take a major step backwards this season following the departure of Artemi Panarin, but if Dubois can continue his development, the club could once again surprise.
While it's still too early to make any definitive statements on the matter, so far, Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen looks like a genius for grabbing Dubois as the third overall pick in 2016 rather than the expected selection, Jesse Puljujarvi. Dubois had an outstanding campaign as a teenager, finishing in the top 10 in rookie scoring with 20 goals and 48 points. He showed a physical edge to his game that should only grow as he matures and gets stronger, and his two-way play was a perfect fit for John Tortorella's system. Dubois averaged nearly two minutes of ice time with the man advantage last season, and his offensive role could increase in 2018-19, especially if Artemi Panarin ends up in another uniform at some point. While sophomore slumps are rarely predictable, Dubois is as well-positioned to avoid one as any player in his cohort.
The third overall pick in 2016 started off last season slowly in the QMJHL, but racked up nine goals and 22 points in 19 playoff games and seems ready to make the leap to the pros. The Blue Jackets have a need at center, and in the long term they're hoping Dubois can develop into a strong two-way player up the middle, but as a rookie he could find himself seeing limited minutes and bouncing between the center and left wing as the 19-year-old acclimates to the NHL.
