Cape Breton left wing Pierre-Luc Dubois, No. 7 on NHL Central Scouting's midterm ranking of North American skaters eligible for the 2016 NHL Draft, is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury, according to CAA Sports Agency.

Dubois (6-foot-2, 202 pounds) had two goals and an assist before getting injured in a 5-3 win against Blainville-Boisbriand on Feb. 20. He did not play in a 3-0 loss at Gatineau on Wednesday. The Screaming Eagles have games at Rouyn-Noranda on Friday and at Val-d'Or on Saturday.

Dubois, who has points in seven of his past eight games, has 35 goals and 82 points in 55 games for Cape Breton this season. He also has eight power-play goals, two shorthanded goals and a plus-25 rating.

"[Dubois] is a big, skilled forward who plays a complete game," NHL Central Scouting's Troy Dumville said. "He goes to traffic areas and plays with an edge, has good vision and very good hands in tight."
