Columbus GM Jarmo Kekalainen is confident that Pierre-Luc Dubois will be re-signed before training camp.
"I'm 100 percent sure it will get done," Kekalainen said. "I know he wants to play in the National Hockey League, so the only way he can play in National Hockey League in this year is if he signs a contract with us." The NHL has been targeting Jan. 1 to start the 2020-21 season. Dubois is Columbus' last unsigned restricted free agent and it's an important one following the expiration of his entry-level deal. The 22-year-old center had a team-leading 49 points (18 goals, 31 assists) in 70 games last campaign. Dubois also topped the Blue Jackets with 10 points (four goals, six assists) during the postseason. Nov 18 3:07 pm (EST)
