The Blue Jackets cut it close to training camp, but they’ve re-signed RFA Pierre-Luc Dubois.
Columbus extended the 22 year old forward with a two year, $10 million ($5M AAV) deal.
Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reported that Dubois might be looking for a change of scenery at 12:07 PM and he was re-signed less than three hours later.
Pierre-Luc Dubois was the 3rd overall pick of the 2016 draft. He had 49 points (18 goals, 31 assists) in 70 games last season. The center had 61 points (27 goals, 34 assists) in 82 games the previous year.
