CBJ Under Review: Pierre-Luc Dubois Edition

By Sam Blazer on February 28, 2020 at 9:58 am

The Blue Jackets put out plenty of videos on their Youtube channel, and they vary from highlights and trailers for certains months, but my favorite as of late is the "Under Review" segment that they have started to run regularly.

The first (that I could find) was with Oliver Bjorkstrand. The way that they broke down film was fascinating because you not only got Jody Shelley's insights but you heard from the players themselves. More often than not, you aren't seeing something in a play and this just reinforces it.

In the newest iteration of the series, they have forward Pierre-Luc Dubois on and for such a young player, he is surprisingly insightful. He also showed he has fantastic instincts when he went over his overtime goal against the Los Angeles Kings. He knows when and where the play is going to go more often than not.

Even more fascinating than that is the plays in which the Blue Jackets don't score and how Dubois processes what is happening around him. The windows that he is trying to get passes into are incredibly small and it takes an immense amount of patience to find the open man.

It makes plenty of sense why he is succeeding at this level in just the third year of his blossoming career.
