Winning is a way of life for Kelowna Rockets centre Dillon Dube. He’s captured three championships in the last three years, as he won the Ed Chynoweth Cup with the Rockets last season and league titles with the Notre Dame ‘AAA’ midget Argos and Notre Dame ‘AAA’ bantam Hounds in 2013-14 and 2012-13 respectively.
“I was able to learn a lot playing on teams like that,” says Dube, who’s ranked as a B-list prospect (potential second or third rounder) by NHL Central Scouting Service. “Being on teams that have had that type of success has shown me what it takes to win. It was a great experience to play on those Notre Dame teams and I was given a great opportunity there. I don’t know of too many players my age that played as much as I did on the midget team. And last year was a great experience here in Kelowna to win a WHL championship.”
A testament to Dube’s dedication to the game is how he moved away from Cochrane, Alta., at just 14 years old to play for the prestigious Athol Murray CollegeRead More »from NHL draft tracker: Dillon Dube, Kelowna Rockets
