Pierre-Luc Dubois' name has been linked to the Canadiens again and a position has already been taken

After a slow start to the season, Kirby Dach has been on fire since being paired with Cole Caufield and Nick Suzuki.

The number 77 has scored an impressive 14 points in 15 games, and even though Dach is considered a center, Martin St-Louis' decision to move him to the right wing has paid off in the last few games. It would be surprising if the Caufield-Suzuki-Dach trio is dismantled any time soon.

However, many Canadiens fans are wondering who could be considered as the team's second center. Sean Monahan or Christian Dvorak?

Well, it would seem that the Habs management has a very specific plan to find the organization's second center and as reported by Vincent Fournier, of Letsgohabs.com, the lucky one is not currently playing for the Habs.

On BPM Sports, Jean-Charles Lajoie and Tony Marinaro discussed the situation and according to them, Pierre-Luc Dubois would be the target for Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton to become the Habs' second center one day.

As we know, the Winnipeg Jets forward will be an uncompensated free agent in the summer of 2024 and we know Dubois' intentions to one day play for the tricolore. Without taking anything away from Dvorak and Monahan, it would not be surprising if these two players were no longer in Montreal within two years, especially Monahan.

This would leave the second center position to the Quebec forward.

There is still a lot of hockey to be played between now and the opening of the 2024 free-agent market, but the way the Habs have progressed so far this season, it wouldn't be surprising if Montreal once again became an attractive place to attract big free agents and who knows, the team could be a contender for big money.
