Dubois played Final with separated shoulder

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.

Blainville-Boisbriand scored just four goals in the four-game series loss to the Saint John Sea Dogs, which set a league record.
The 18-year-old finished the playoffs with nine goals and 13 assists in 19 games. He had 15 goals and 22 assists in 28 games with the Armada in the regular season, who he joined following a trade after playing with Team Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championships.

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.

  1. You would never have guessed that given the running at players he was doing in this series.
