Dubé, 23, has posted 24 goals this season, a mark that leads Hershey and ranks second in the American Hockey League, and is just one off the league lead. He's collected 34 points (24g, 10a) in 50 games this season, and his six game-winning goals are tied for second in the AHL. He's potted seven power-play goals this year and has collected four multi-goal games.

Dubé, who signed a two-year, two-way entry level contract with the Capitals on July 2, 2023, recorded 32 points (16g, 16a) in 44 games with the Laval Rocket of the AHL last season. The 5'9", 185-pound forward ranked first among Laval rookies in points-per-game (0.73) and plus/minus (+10). Dubé also appeared in nine games with the Trois-Rivières Lions of the ECHL in 2022-23, recording 14 points (9g, 5a). In 94 career AHL games with Hershey and Laval, Dubé has registered 66 points (40g, 26a).

The Bears continue the 2023-24 season, presented by Penn State Health, when they visit the Laval Rocket at Place Bell tonight at 7 p.m. to conclude their five-game road trip.
