“I am extremely proud and honored to announce my commitment to play Division 1 college hockey at the Air Force Academy,” DuBois said. “I would like to thank all my family, coaches, teammates and friends that have helped me along the way.”

DuBois has one more year of eligibility before joining the Falcons for the 2023-24 season.
“He’s worked really hard this season and has taken on a major role,” Wings head coach Steve Jennings said. “He’s established himself as a leader in our locker room and off the ice, and I’m really proud of him and what he’s done. The Air Force is getting a great player and a great kid. They’re going to love him.”
Prior to playing in the NAHL, DuBois played youth hockey for the Milwaukee Jr. Admirals 18U and 16U teams.
