Dubois notched an assist, two hits and two PIM in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Coyotes. Dubois dished to Oliver Bjorkstrand in the third period for what would count as the game-winning goal. The helper gives the center 11 points through 16 contests, to go with 37 shots on goal, 28 hits and 15 PIM.
Dubois scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blues. It's the first multi-point performance of the year for the 21-year-old, but Dubois has been rock solid as the Jackets' No. 1 center, finding the scoresheet in five straight games and amassing six goals and 10 points though 13 contests.
Dubois has notched two goals and four points in his last four games. Dubois had a bit of a slow start to the season, notching three goals and four points in his first eight games, but it appears as though he's starting to hit his stride. The 21-year-old forward will look to extend his point streak to five games Friday in St. Louis.
Dubois indicated after Monday's win over the Maple Leafs that he isn't taking faceoffs due to an unspecified injury, Tom Reed of The Athletic reports. "I want to take face-offs but health-wise, I can't right now," said Dubois. Whatever is hindering the 21-year-old in the faceoff circle isn't preventing him from making an impact on the scoresheet -- Dubois scored his fourth goal in the last six games during Monday's win, gaining possession of the puck in the corner and driving to the front of the net before tucking it past Frederik Andersen. At the moment, the injury doesn't seem like it will affect Dubois' fantasy value.
Dubois scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 3-2 victory over the Hurricanes. After a giveaway by the 'Canes at the Jackets' blue line, Gustav Nyquist sprung Dubois for a partial breakaway and the third-year player did the rest, fending off Brock McGinn most of the way before lifting a sweet backhand shot over James Reimer. Dubois now has two goals and three points through five games to begin the season, and Columbus will be counting on him to continue coming up big as the No. 1 center on a young roster.
