Jets make announcement regarding Pierre-Luc Dubois
Another player in the same situation is Alex DeBrincat, who has reportedly asked the Ottawa Senators for a trade. However, the situation is different.
The Senators have requested arbitration for their forward, while the Jets have just confirmed that this is not the case with Dubois.
While #sens and #njdevils have elected for arbitration on Alex DeBrincat and Timo Meier, the #nhljets have not elected the same for Pierre-Luc Dubois.

So it's now well and truly confirmed, Pierre-Luc Dubois will be traded before July 1. The team had already written him off, but the request for arbitration would have shown that they are far from reaching an agreement with another team and are protecting their interests.
