PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT APPROVES REDUCED QUARANTINE FOR DUBOIS; NO DECISION FROM FEDS YET

There's no doubt the Winnipeg Jets would like to have newly-acquired forward Pierre-Luc Dubois in their lineup as soon as possible. Due to travel restrictions, and mandatory quarantine periods, the Jets will have to wait before he hits the ice in the Manitoba capital.

The Jets continue to work tirelessly to get Dubois' quarantine period down to 7 days, from 14 that is currently implemented by the federal government.

According to Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun, the provincial government in Manitoba has given the Jets the green light on having the quarantine period cut to seven days, but the federal government have not signed off.

So with both governments giving different answers, the question arises, when will Pierre-Luc Dubois make his Jets debut? If the federal government gives the green light, Dubois could join the Jets as early as Sunday, but if they don't then Winnipeg will have to wait until February 7th to have him on the ice.

Dubois will miss anywhere from four to seven games due to his quarantine. The latest his debut could come is February 9th in Calgary, or if he needs to get back up to speed, it could be on February 11th against Ottawa.

With the 2020-21 season only 56 games, missing four to seven games is a big chunk of time, especially for such a big piece the Jets have added in Pierre-Luc Dubois.
