With their second second round pick of the morning, the Flames have selected centre Dillon Dube from the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets.
Dube, taken with the pick Dallas sent in the Kris Russell trade, is an average 5’10”, 187lbs and a young guy with a July 20th birthday. He is listed as a centre, but apparently splits time as a left winger. Ranked #37 by TSN and somewhere in the 40s by other scouting services, Dube scored 66 points in 65 WHL games, and seven in 18 playoff games.
Perhaps it was not the pick some were expecting with #56, but Dube is a solid performer and adds some high quality depth to the Flames’ prospect corps.
