A reason for the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada's offensive struggles in the President Cup Final may have been the health of one of their top forwards.
It was revealed yesterday that Armada forward Pierre-Luc Dubois had been playing with a separated shoulder, which he suffered during Game 1 of the series.
Dubois finished the series with just one point - a goal - which came in Wednesday's Game 4.Tobie Paquette-Bisson et Pierre-Luc Dubois ont joué en dépit d'une séparation de l'épaule depuis CHA et 1er match vs SNB. #LHJMQ— Anthony Marcotte (@anthonymarcotte) May 11, 2017
Blainville-Boisbriand scored just four goals in the four-game series loss to the Saint John Sea Dogs, which set a league record.
Dubois was selected third overall by the Columbus Blue Jackets in last year's NHL Draft, two spots after Auston Matthews and one after Patrik Laine.
