Major Development: Kent Hughes offered three CH players in an attempt to acquire Pierre-Luc Dubois

Published July 15, 2022 at 9:37

In the last few days, the rumor of a possible trade involving the Montreal Canadiens and the Winnipeg Jets, involving Quebecer Pierre-Luc Dubois, has been circulating a lot and seems to be absolutely true.

Even Kent Hughes himself has practically confirmed his interest:

Let's also remember that Dubois' agent, Pat Brisson, clearly confirmed, live on TVA Sports, that his client is indeed interested in joining the Montreal Canadiens organization.

Another important point: according to Martin Leclerc (Radio-Canada), talks are currently underway between Kent Hughes and his Jets counterpart, Kevin Cheveldayoff. They are really trying to build a trade involving Dubois.

As reported by our colleagues at GoHabsGo.com, yesterday on the Totally Hockey podcast, Leclerc added a big layer.

See the major new information he revealed:

"In the week of the draft, I know it was a tough negotiation. I was told that the Canadiens offered a consideration of three players to get their hands on Pierre-Luc Dubois. I don't know who the players are, but they want to liquidate salaries." - Martin Leclerc

Wow! Let's remember that Leclerc is really not known as a journalist who wants to play Insiders. If he says it, it's because it's true and his sources are concrete.

So who are these famous three players involved? The ones that Kent Hughes offered to the Jets, in exchange for Pierre-Luc Dubois?

1- Christian Dvorak was most likely involved

2- Jonathan Drouin, Mike Hoffman or Brendan Gallagher? Maybe Josh Anderson?

3- Most likely a young prospect, like Mattias Norlinder, Ryan Poehling, Jan Mysak, Riley Kidney or Jesse Ylonen

You be the judge!
