Observations

April 2019 – With Mangiapane spending most of the time in Calgary these days, Dillon Dube has become the young play driver in Stockton. He currently has 39 points in 37 games and finishing above the PPG mark is no joke. Originally thought to be a middle-six winger, his potential has moved him into Top-six type. He’s an elusive playmaker who can burn you with a pass or with an accurate wrist shot from the rush or from driving into high traffic areas. Dillon Dube is the kind of player who forces an organization to make room for him. His development in Stockton will most likely be over come 2019-20. – Joel Henderson

Nov 2018 – Dube has been assigned to the AHL. He missed four games due to injury after taking a hit from Duncan Keith. Since returning, he’s averaged just over 10 minutes a night and mostly on the fourth line. Those numbers are inflated too since he grabbed extra minutes in a blowout game against Vegas. The organization seems to be sending a clear message; they want him to play big minutes and continue developing. – Joel Henderson

Oct 2018 – What. A. Summer. You couldn’t ask for better progression than what Dube has shown during the summer. He’s always been adept to creating space for others with patience and stick handling, but at times struggled with confidence and assertiveness. Dube was hands down the best forward prospect on ice every game and has seemingly worked his way into the roster to begin the year, most likely 3rd line LW. It says a lot that he is potentially stealing minutes from Sam Bennett too. However, I would still be cautious. It shouldn’t surprise fans if he goes through some rookie struggles and ends up in Stockton for a while. Calgary has the depth to be able to let him play top minutes in the AHL if the road gets rocky. – Joel Henderson

Mar 2018 – After a pretty strong showing during the WJC, Dube returned to Kelowna and build. He finished off the regular season on fire with eight goals, 12 assists, in his last 10 games. It’s no small feat to average four shots on goal during that time too. As far as Dube is concerned, he’s their best forward prospect outside of pro hockey. With Calgary currently without a pick in the first three rounds of the 2018 draft, there don’t seem to be road blocks stopping him from having an impact in the NHL down the line. The projection of a second or third-line forward is still holding strong. – Joel Henderson

 

Dec 2017 – Dillon has been named to Team Canada’s prelim roster. No surprises here. He will showcase his playmaking ability and impress others how he can drive the net and find open space. He should be a big part of the offense. Dube had 5 points in 2 games, leading the way for WHL vs Russia series as Team Captain. If he can find continued chemistry with fellow westerner Sam Steel, watch out.  – Joel Henderson

 

Sept 2017 – Dube was sent back but certainly impressed during his time in preseason. He was often placed on lines with others who dragged him down but his ability to create off the rush and entering the zone was evident. He could be a big part of Team Canada this year and his WHL numbers could skyrocket. Jump on the Dube train before others in your pool do. – Joel Henderson

 

July 2017 – Dillon Dube received an invite to Team Canada summer development camp. It’s well deserved and very predicable. Dillon captures 21 points in 17 games in the playoffs but are you wondering what momentum he carried into the playoffs? Dube strung together 14 goals and 22 assists over the last 22 regular season games. 1.64 PPG to end the season. Not too shabby. He could play up and down the roster for Team Canada come WJC. – Joel Henderson

 

Jan 2017 – Dube played 10 games for Kelowna going 1-10-11 before the somewhat surprising selection for Team Canada WJC 2017. He used his speed and grit to hem teams in their own zone and create turnovers. While his bottom-six role was limited, he played it well; adding a much needed boost of energy. His stock was certainly boosted by this tournament. Look for him to have a strong finish to this season with over PPG numbers. – Joel Henderson

 

Oct 2016 – As per WHL site, Dube is out week-to-week with a lower body injury. Dube was looking to have a strong impact right out of the gate as his offensive production slipped at the end of the 2015/16 season, which is why he fell out of the first round. 

 

July 2016 – Dube managed to significantly increase his scoring totals in his draft year despite some inconsistent play and an eye injury. The Flames second pick in the second round projects as a future middle six forward with offensive upside and a relentless forecheck and physical game despite his slight frame. Peter Harling

 

March 2016 – Dillon Dubé is a shifty and agile centre that can play either in an offensive or defensive role with effect, and he shone early in the seaon when he was forced into a larger role due to injuries. Dubé is adept at creating time and space by stickhandling into open areas, which allows him to find the open man and slow the play down in the offensive zone. Dubé is not an elite passer or shooter, though he makes effective use of both qualities, and he can be accused of holding on to the puck too long or trying to do everything himself. He is a solid penalty killer and able to play in any situation, and not afraid to initiate contact. Though not blessed with great size, Dubé is solidly built and has a low center of gravity which enables him to drive into the danger zones and toward the front of the net. – Aynsley Scott
