Dillon Dubé Takes Indefinite Leave of Absence to Attend to Mental Health  



The Calgary Flames announced on Sunday that winger Dillon Dubé would be taking an indefinite leave of absence to attend to his mental health.  

The 56th overall pick in 2016, Dube has struggled to find on-ice production this season. The Cochrane product leaves the lineup on a 24-game pointless streak. His last point came on Nov. 24 in a 7-4 win over the Dallas Stars. His overall totals this season are three goals and four assists for seven points in 43 games in 2023-2024. 

The author of an 18 goal, 45 point season in 2022-2023, Dubé sat out Saturday’s Battle of Alberta as well as the morning skate earlier that day. Head coach Ryan Huska responded to Dillon’s absence after the skate concluded. “Dillon is not feeling well today, so he won’t be an option for us tonight.”  

The Calgary Flames released the following to the media on Sunday morning: 

“Dillon Dubé has been granted an indefinite leave of absence from the team while he attends to his mental health. Dillon is under the care of health professionals, and we request that Dillon’s privacy is respected during this period.”
