The Winnipeg Jets’ season came to an abrupt end when they were eliminated in five games by the Vegas Golden Knights.
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.
He said he was disappointed and disgusted by his players’ playoff performance.

Several topics are covered, including Perfetti’s season-ending injury and Dubois’s opinion on this abrupt end to the season.
“Today is not a great day, but there was also positive moments throughout the season that we can’t forget about.”

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.
“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
– Will Smith continues to impress with the U.S. and continues to earn points toward the draft.
Will Smith leading tourney in goals and points. Closing in on the greatest u18 tourney in points ever.
This after a full season of passing Jack Hughes record breaker.
The issue is Smith is not gonna be available at 5.
Start thinking about Leonard or Moore.
