Dubois is set to make his return to face the Winnipeg Jets for the first time since the trade.
At the Canada Life Centre tonight, the boo birds will soar.

Pierre-Luc Dubois, a former forward for the Winnipeg Jets, is making his debut in Winnipeg following the sensational summer deal.

He remarked, "It was at a point in my career and my life where I have to look beyond just one year." "If my contract had been for five years, it would have been for five years. It also basically comes down to timing, contract, and circumstance. I had to consider not only the first year but also the eighth year of a contract, and I thought L.A. was a perfect fit.

"I had a great stay in Winnipeg. Had I been in Winnipeg for five years after leaving Columbus, that would have been the duration of the deal. Simply said, the moment felt appropriate.

The Jets and Dubois's new team, the Los Angeles Kings, are playing a three-game homestand.

"I understand that many individuals may believe it's a more significant game or something else," Dubois remarked. It's an 82-game season, though. It's the same thing at two spots.

In exchange, Rasmus Kupari, Alex Iafallo, and Gabriel Vilardi were acquired by the Jets.

Dubois stated, "I believe the Jets' supporters are pleased that they received that return rather than nothing." That's just the way business operates sometimes. I'm glad the Jets received what they likely desired.

Dubois wanted out of Winnipeg after three seasons, and as part of a four-player trade, he was transferred to the Kings.

In his opening two games as a King, he was rendered worthless.

Just hours before the puck dropped on Tuesday, Dubois made an effort to justify his desire to be traded out of Winnipeg.
Considering that both of his parents are anticipated to be present, Dubois will have a minimum of two supporters rooting for him against the Jets. However, the 25-year-old is ready for the barrage of jeers.

Dubois quipped, "I think you guys will think it's like boos." "I'm going to go with D-U-B, so I'll turn it into a positive, like B-O-O."

Over the course of three seasons, Dubois played 195 games for the Jets, tallying 63 goals and 80 assists.

In addition, Dubois was asked which of his former teammates he would like to take a run at him during the game.
Dubois declared, "I'd take an underdog, probably Nik Ehlers." You all are aware. You all know how hard he plays.

Perhaps Dilly, or Brenden Dillon. I wouldn't tamper with him too much, though. It will definitely be strange and entertaining all at once tonight.
