Pierre-Luc Dubois is having fun in Australia

Los Angeles Kings player Pierre-Luc Dubois appears to be having fun in Melbourne, Australia as his club prepares to face the Arizona Coyotes in the National Hockey League (NHL) Global Series.

The main objective of this trip is above all to promote hockey in this part of the world. However, DuBois used this moment to make new sporting inventions.

The former Winnipeg Jets forward went with Australian football star Mason Cox to practice kicking with teammate Drew Doughty.

“It’s always fun to step out of your comfort zone and learn new things, and that’s what I’m here for today,” Dubois shared in comments posted by LNH.com. I am very happy to have this opportunity.”

Quebecer noted many similarities between the two games.

“Even though they don’t wear any gear, I agree they hit each other as hard as we do,” he said. Interactions, the strength of this game with no equipment, makes it very enjoyable. In hockey, we block shots. But getting elbowed in the face must hurt without equipment.

Skaters from the Kings and Coyotes take part in Friday’s Australian Football match between the Collingwood Magpies and the Greater Western Sydney Giants at the Melbourne Cricket Ground during the semi-final of the Australian Football League (AFL) series. 95,000 fans are expected to attend the event.

Doughty was able to exchange a few balls with Australian tennis star Thanasi Kokkinakis at Melbourne Park, where the Australian Open is held every year. The 73rd ranked player in the ATP rankings also marveled at the King’s defender’s performance.

“Not bad. You can see he’s already played. He’s pretty intimidating on the other side of the court, I’m not going to lie,” Kokkinakis said.
