Pierre-Luc Dubois has been followed by problems and controversy his entire career. This seems to be continuing in his newest location.

Dubois Finally Picks His New Home

Pierre-Luc Dubois has had many issues with many different teams he has played for in the past. He often spoke about not being able to choose where he wanted to play as a factor for his displeasure. This past offseason he finally got a choice of where to go and chose the Los Angeles Kings.

We have acquired forward Pierre-Luc Dubois from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for F Alex Iafallo, F Rasmus Kupari, F Gabriel Vilardi and a second-round draft pick in the 2024 NHL Draft.

In addition, Dubois agreed to terms on an eight-year contract.

With Dubois finally on a long-term deal and reportedly happy many people expected an improved and more engaged player. Unfortunately for Kings fans that hasn't quite been the case.

Dubois' Problems Continue In His New Home

When Pierre-Luc Dubois is bought into his team and their mission he is one of the better players in the NHL. Many were hoping and expecting to see this from Dubois this year. Sadly that has been not the case instead more inconsistency in effort and energy has continued.

"The hesitant and uninvolved version of Dubois is what the Kings have seen too often this season."

This opinion is shared by many in the Los Angeles market. Dubois will need to figure it out this time and improve. He has been tied to Los Angeles for several years and cannot slide his way out of it this time.

As pressure mounts from outside sources, it will be interesting to see if Dubois can change his way and play some committed winning hockey.
