Pierre-Luc Dubois is likely on his way out of Winnipeg. His agent Pat Brisson reportedly wants to work with the Jets on trading Dubois to another team, as his client isn't interested in signing an extension with the club.

Dubois is a pending restricted free agent, but he could accept his $6-million qualifying offer this offseason and walk to unrestricted free agency in 2024. In other words, if Winnipeg doesn't trade him, it'll risk losing him for nothing a year from now.

Players like Dubois are rarely made available. He's a 24-year-old 6-foot-2 center with the pedigree of a third overall pick. He also tallied a career-high 63 points this season.

There should be no shortage of suitors lining up for the power forward, but Dubois holds all the cards. The Jets can maximize a return for Dubois by trading him to a team he's willing to commit to long term. While it's unknown which teams Dubois is open to, we've taken our best shot at projecting clubs that would be a sensible fit.

Below, we outline five logical landing spots for Dubois, listed in alphabetical order.


Boston Bruins

The fit for the Bruins is simple. Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci might retire, leaving two gaping holes down the middle of Boston's lineup. Pavel Zacha and Charlie Coyle are capable of helping fill the void. However, adding Dubois would allow Zacha and Coyle to slot into more suitable spots centering the second and third lines.
