The situation surrounding the potential arrival of Pierre-Luc Dubois in Montreal finally concluded over the past few weeks, as he eventually joined the Los Angeles Kings.

In addition to the trade, the 25-year-old Quebecer also signed an eight-year contract extension for $8.5M annually.

In relation to everything that transpired during the weeks preceding his trade, during his appearance on 98.5 FM, he refuted a significant rumor concerning the Montreal Canadiens.

No, the Canadiens did not make me a formal offer.


Some teams were offering me more money than the Kings, but they were the ones who wanted me the most.

While some rumors stated that the Canadiens were really in the running and had even possibly made an offer to Dubois, we learn from the player himself that Kent Hughes was ultimately not as involved in the case as what was being suggested behind the scenes.

The new Kings' player even reiterated a second time that the CH had never made him an offer, while stating that Los Angeles was the team most interested in him.

No, we never really received anything from the Canadiens [...] We talked with Montreal, but at the end of the day, it was Los Angeles who was calling and pushing the hardest.

- Pierre-Luc Dubois

So it can be concluded that in the end, Dubois was never really close to joining the Tricolore.

We can even add that the Canadiens may have been listening in order to know the price to acquire his services, but contrary to the rumors, the club was never a significant player in the derby for the Quebec forward.
