The Jets are set to conclude their four-game road trip tonight in Vancouver against the Canucks. Big question mark heading into this afternoon was the status of Pierre-Luc Dubois and whether he would feel good after getting through practice on Saturday.
An update from Vancouver via Kevin Woodley of NHL dot com shows Dubois up on the top line. Check out the lines from Kevin.
From Pierre-Luc Dubois media availability: “I’ve never been more ready to play a hockey game in my entire life”
Jets projected lines & D pairs:
1. How did he come up with the line combinations? What makes Dubois good fit with 55/26?
2. Will he be monitoring the minutes of PLD during the game?
3. What does he expect the game to look like tonight?
4. His level of excitement having a fully healthy roster.
5. High forward of the Canucks, challenges/opportunities.
6. Any concern for PLD trying to do too much in his first game back?
Puck drop is at 9:00 pm CT. Be sure to head over to illegalcurve.com following the game for a recap of the action which includes post-game interviews from the Jets room as well as from coach Maurice.
