The Daily: NHL Trade Rumors; Kings Chasing Dubois?



The Lost Angeles Kings are about to make some big noise in the Western Conference. According to reports, the Kings and Winnipeg Jets are inching closer to a deal that would send Pierre-Luc Dubois to the Los Angeles for Gabe Vilardi. A source told LA Hockey Now that Viardi was in fact the name linked to a deal involving Dubois heading to Hollywood.

Beyond that, the article goes into length comparing the ramifications of a deal with Vilardi and Dubois from contract length, cost, right down to what each team should expect if they acquire the other player.

It’s one of many rumors and potential trades to keep an eye on as the NHL Draft approaches on Wednesday.

  • *Spoiler Alert* – I took Connor Bedard at #1. But here’s why I chose Colby Barlow at #19.
