Observations:

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

Fantasy Outlook: B +

Dillon Dubé has the potential to be a two-way middle six centre with scoring upside but is a work in progress.
