Pierre-Luc Dubois: Two Autographed Cards

(team links go to sponsored Amazon products, player links go to related pages on my blog, news links go to source pages)
It was barely a month ago that I mentionned Pierre-Luc Dubois asking for a trade and the Winnipeg Jets being a serious option even though they were already set at the 1C/2C positions with Mark Scheifele and Paul Stastny respecively, but the teams exchanged problems anyway, with Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic going to the Columbus Blue Jackets. It's not too often that one has the chance to acquire a young top-line centre as he's hitting his prime, and Dubois has the potential to become a Vincent Lecavalier-type of elite player.

I had previously showcased him wearing Team Canada's red (away) uniform, so card #31 from Upper Deck's 2015-16 Team Canada Juniors/Women set isn't really anything "new" (except that he's seen here bracing for contact instead of making a play):
But card #H-24 from the Hydro sub-set of the same collection shows him wearing the team's white (home) uniform from the same 2015 U-18 World Juniors:
He was the youngest player on that U-18 team that captured bronze, in the same season where as a 16-year-old rookie with the LHJMQ's Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, he was already wearing the alternate captain's "A".

He signed both as a member of the Jackets after a game against the Ottawa Senators.
