Our friends at TSN have compiled their annual Top 50 ranking of the best NHL-team affiliated prospects. The Calgary Flames are represented by forward Dillon Dube, who is the 48th-ranked prospect on the list.
GLIMPSE OF THE FUTURE: There's a definite Russian flavour atop #TSNHockey's Top 50 #NHL affiliated prospects list by @CraigJButton, while the #Habs and #Canucks lead all Canadian teams in this year's ranking.

Dube, 20, is in his first professional season after a superb junior career with the Western Hockey League’s Kelowna Rockets. He’s bounced between the Flames and the American Hockey League’s Stockton Heat so far; he has one goal and five points in 23 NHL games and two goals and 11 points in 11 games with Stockton. Dube was selected by the Flames in the second round of the 2016 NHL Draft.
Coincidentally, The Athletic’s Corey Pronman has also released his listing of the top NHL-affiliated prospects (paywall): 2018 pick Emilio Pettersen is the lone Flames property on his list, ranked 52nd.
