Dubois, who was a restricted free agent, will receive a salary of $6 million in 2022-2023.
The name of the 24-year-old colossus has been circulating widely in the rumor mill since the draft. His agent, Pat Brisson, had also revealed in an interview with TVA Sports that he would eventually like to wear the colors of the Montreal Canadiens. The native of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts had also waived salary arbitration, he who had just completed the second season of a contract worth an annual value of $5 million.
Dubois has 28 goals and 60 points in 81 games this season, his second campaign with the Jets. He spent the first four years of his career with the Columbus Blue Jackets, who drafted him third overall in the 2016 auction.
He has 239 points in 361 games in the Bettman circuit.
