Pierre-Luc Dubois denies all rumors about his future in Winnipeg

The Winnipeg Jets’ season came to an abrupt end when they were eliminated in five games by the Vegas Golden Knights.

Obviously, this was all it took for fans to turn on the rumour machine concerning the Manitoba team.

Winnipeg’s future seems rather unclear, especially concerning Quebecer Pierre-Luc Dubois, who has already mentioned that he would like to play in Montreal eventually.

Jets head coach Rick Bowness spoke out for all the wrong reasons at a press conference on Friday.

He said he was disappointed and disgusted by his players’ playoff performance.

This has inevitably created tension with the players, and there could be a lot of movement within the organization this off-season.

Today, a few Jets players, including Dubois and Cole Perfetti, spoke to reporters about the end-of-season review.

Dubois was careful with his choice of words when asked about his future.

I recommend you listen to the entire interview with the Quebecer and young Perfetti.

Several topics are covered, including Perfetti’s season-ending injury and Dubois’s opinion on this abrupt end to the season.

Mainly, the big-name center denies all the trade rumors surrounding him in recent weeks. According to him, as long as he doesn’t say or do anything, it’s all just speculation.

“I still haven’t had those conversations with my agent. A lot of people are speculating that they’ve heard this or that. As long as I haven’t said or done anything, it’s all speculation. They’ve been speculating all season, and nothing’s happened.” – Pierre-Luc Dubois

As far as he’s concerned, all he was thinking about was helping his club win, and not the rumours that have been circulating for some time.

According to the Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts native, many things can happen in a season.

“Yes, it’s disappointing that the playoffs are already over, but this year we made it to the playoffs, whereas last year we didn’t. Of course, we’re here because we’re not going to make it. Obviously, we’re here because we lost, so it’s not a good day, but there were still some good moments.” – Pierre-Luc Dubois

We can expect to see a lot of transactions and new faces at the Jets this off-season. What GM Kevin Cheveldayoff does in the coming months will be something to keep an eye on, because change is needed in Winnipeg.

In gusto

– Will Smith continues to impress with the U.S. and continues to earn points toward the draft.

– Blake Wheeler had an opinion on Rick Bowness’ comments.

– Very nice game.

– Akira Schmid could become the second goaltender in Devils history to win four consecutive playoff games.

– The Cameroonian could join the French national team for the World Cup.
