Screaming Eagles star rises to top of NHL Central Scouting rankings
Pierre-Luc Dubois jumps from seventh place to first among North American draft prospects
Cape Breton Screaming Eagles left-winger Pierre-Luc Dubois' star continues to rise among top prospects for the 2016 NHL Draft.
NHL Central Scouting has released its final rankings for the season, and the teenager from Rimouski has rocketed from seventh place to number one among all North American hockey players.
This years draft will take place in Buffalo, N.Y., in June.
Dubois has said that for now his full attention is on a more immediate task: the second-round QMJHL playoff series against the Saint John Sea Dogs.
That series is tied after the Eagles defeated the Sea Dogs 4-1 Tuesday night in Sydney. Dubois scored a goal and added an assist in the win.
The six-foot-three, 200-pound forward scored 42 times and ended up with 99 points during the regular season.
