Jets' Dubois changes number to honor late ex-teammate Kivlenieks
Dubois is switching from No. 13 to 80 for the upcoming season.
Kivlenieks, who died at age 24 in a fireworks accident last month, wore No. 80 with the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Latvian netminder had played in the team's system since 2017-18 and appeared in eight NHL games over the last two seasons.
Dubois also began his Blue Jackets tenure in 2017-18 and played with Columbus until January of this year, when the club traded him to Winnipeg. He wore No. 18 with the Blue Jackets.
