Columbus, Winnipeg complete Pierre-Luc Dubois-Patrik Laine trade

The Columbus Blue Jackets and Winnipeg Jets completed a trade on Saturday morning that sends Pierre-Luc Dubois and a 2022 third round pick to the Jets in exchange for Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic.

Roslovic, a Columbus native, also agreed to a two-year, $3.8 million contract with Columbus.

“Strengthening our lineup offensively has been a priority for us and the additions of Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic accomplish just that,” says Columbus General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen in a press release “Patrik is a player we know very well and in a short time has become one of our league’s most proficient goal scorers. Jack is an exciting young player with great potential and we’re thrilled to bring him home to Columbus as a Blue Jacket.”

Laine, 22, has registered 140 goals and 110 assists in 306 games. He was the second overall pick of the 2016 NHL Draft.

Dubois, 22, was the third overall pick in the same draft and has 66 career goals and 93 career assists in 239 games.

“Pierre-Luc has been an important part of our team the past four seasons, but this was the right time for both parties to move in a different direction,” said Kekalainen.
