Embarrassing scene involving Pierre-Luc Dubois and it's over in L.A.

Published May 2, 2024 at 10:33

The Quebec forward for the Los Angeles Kings, Pierre-Luc Dubois, unfortunately had an extremely difficult season with his new team.

His ice time plummeted from month to month, as did his responsibilities and production, and he ultimately finished the 2023-24 season with a tally of 39 points in 81 games.

He also ended the campaign with a negative differential of -10.

However, Dubois had the opportunity to redeem himself in the playoffs and put the rumors aside (the trade rumors and contract buyout rumors), but that really did not happen.

In the first-round series against the Edmonton Oilers, in 5 games, he amassed 0 goals, 1 assist, and 20 penalty minutes, in 14:50 minutes of ice time per game.

He was one of the least used players of the Kings.

It's worth noting that Dubois has just signed a contract for 68 million dollars (8 years/$8.5 million per year) in Los Angeles, a contract valid until 2031.

The playoffs are over in L.A., the Los Angeles Kings are eliminated and Pierre-Luc Dubois incurred a costly penalty

Speaking of Dubois, last night, he unfortunately hurt his team by incurring a very costly penalty.

«A really stupid penalty by Pierre-Luc Dubois puts the Oilers on the power play.»

Many journalists today are pointing out that this contract really does not look good at the moment, and moreover, it has just been signed.

« The Dubois contract has taken aging badly into the nuclear age.» - Arpon Basu, The Athletic

What do you think will happen with Dubois this summer? Do you believe a team will take a chance on acquiring his contract for free? Do you think the contract will be bought out?

It will certainly be a fascinating case to follow.
