With four goals on 10 shots in his first four pre-season games, Dillon Dube has gotten himself noticed, as he is tied for the league lead in goals so far this pre-season. You may remember Dube as the captain of Canada’s men’s Under-20 team that won gold at the World Junior Championship this past January.
