Well if you weren’t prepared for a Darren Dreger bomb this Saturday too bad cause here you go:
A trade call is being set up between the Winnipeg Jets and Columbus Blue Jackets to complete trade sending Laine and Roslovic to Columbus for Pierre Luc Dubois. A draft pick to the Jets May also be included.
Here is what Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet added about the deal:
Jack Roslovic has a new deal as part of all this. Laine/Roslovic for Dubois and a third.
Frank Seravalli of TSN adds this:
Believe #nhljets are retaining 26% of Patrik Laine’s salary for this season, which evens out cap hits between Laine and Dubois. So no added salary for #CBJ
other than new Roslovic deal. Of course, Dubois has next year on his contract. Laine does not.
