Blue Jackets choose Dubois 3rd overall

DraftArtCOLUMBUS

PIERRE-LUC DUBOIS, C/LW

CAPE BRETON (QMJHL) | 6′ 2″, 205

42-57-99 in 62 games

The winner of the CHL’s Top Prospect Award, Dubois is a natural left wing who spent most of this past season playing center. Dubois is big, physical (122 PIM, 12th in QMJHL) and has tremendous hockey sense to go along with elite scoring ability.

  • SCOUT SAYS: “He’s a complete, 200-foot player. He’s opportunistic in the offensive zone…equally comfortable taking the shot or making the play. A tenacious defender who reads the play quickly and makes good decisions away from the puck.”
  • COMPARABLE NHL PLAYER: Jamie Benn
