Forward Pierre-Luc Dubois accepted a one-year, $6 million qualifying offer from the Winnipeg Jets on Friday, Sportsnet can confirm.

Dubois, 24, finished third on the team in scoring this past season with 60 points (28 goals and 32 assists) in 81 games. He also earned a silver medal with Canada at the world hockey championships.

Drafted third overall by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2016, Dubois was traded to Winnipeg shortly into the 2020-21 campaign along with a third-round pick for Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic. Coincidentally, Laine re-signed with the Blue Jackets on a four-year, $34.8-million deal on Friday.

Dubois, from Ste-Agathe-des-Monts, Que., has 239 points (102 goals and 137 assists) in 361 games over five seasons with the Blue Jackets and Jets.
