#NHLJets HC Paul Maurice says that both Nikolaj Ehlers and Pierre-Luc Dubois will be on the trip and he’s calling them “game-time decisions” then added they would more likely be “game-time announcements.” Personally, I would put both players in the “doubtful” category for Game 1.

Maurice said the pair will travel with the team to Edmonton for Game 1, which kicks off at 9 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. MT on Sportsnet.
Ehlers, who hasn’t played since suffering an upper-body injury in late April, was in the midst of a breakout campaign, putting up 21 goals and 25 assists in 47 games, good for a career-best 0.98 points-per-game rate.
Dubois, meanwhile, left the Jets’ season finale against the Toronto Maple Leafs with an undisclosed injury, but Maurice said last week he’s “going to be fine.”
The 22-year-old struggled to find his groove in Winnipeg after an early season blockbuster swap that sent Patrik Laine to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Dubois finished with 20 points in 41 games with the Jets, and had 21 points in 46 contests on the year.
