The Los Angeles Kings are one of multiple teams to join the Montreal Canadiens in the hunt for Winnipeg Jets center Pierre-Luc Dubois, sources told The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun.

Dubois' agent Pat Brisson and the Jets believe there will be a "robust market" for the restricted free agent's services, LeBrun added.

The Canadiens would be the least surprising landing spot for Dubois. His agent said last summer that "Montreal is a place, a city he'd like to play in." Dubois later said those comments were blown out of proportion. However, he was born about an hour outside Montreal in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec, and grew up in Rimouski. The Habs also reached out to the Jets about Dubois as soon as Winnipeg was eliminated from the 2023 playoffs.

The Habs are still rebuilding, but they have the necessary cap space to offer Dubois a mammoth extension.
