The Western Hockey League, in association with the Canadian Hockey League, announced today that forward Dillon Dube has been added to Team WHL’s roster for the 2015 CHL Canada Russia Series, which begins Monday, November 9th in Kelowna, BC.

Dube is currently on pace for a career year in his sophomore season with the Kelowna Rockets. Through 14 games played, Dube has notched 23 points (10g-13a) which places him second in team scoring and ninth amongst all WHL skaters. In his rookie season, Dube amassed 27 points (17g-10a) in 45 games as well as 11 more (5g-6a) in 18 WHL Playoff contests.

The Cochrane, AB product was selected by the Rockets in the first round, 21st overall, of the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft. The 1998-born forward is eligible for the 2016 NHL Draft.

“It’s exciting, I didn’t expect it this year because of my age but it’s a big opportunity for me,” said Dube. “I want to try and prove that I can play with the older guys. It’s a big step for me and I’m going to enjoy it.”

Dube will replace Swift Current Broncos forward Jake DeBrusk who is unable to participate due to injury.

The 2015 CHL Canada Russia Series will begin in Kelowna, BC on Monday, November 9th at Prospera Place. The following night, Team WHL will face Team Russia at the Sandman Centre in Kamloops, BC.
