BiographyEdit

Dubé was born in Sherbrooke, Quebec, but grew up in Quebec City, Quebec.[citation needed] He is the son of former pro hockey player Norm Dubé.[citation needed]

As a youth, Dubé played in the 1990 and 1991 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournaments with a minor ice hockey team from Sherbrooke.[1] He spent many years growing up in Switzerland, while his father was playing there.[citation needed] He returned to Canada as a teenager, and played for the Sherbrooke Faucons of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.[citation needed]

In 1995, he was drafted by the New York Rangers with the 39th pick. He made his debut with the Rangers in the 1996–97 season. He would play another 6 games with the Rangers in 1998–99. After that season he headed back to Switzerland, where he played, three season at HC Lugano, nine seasons for SC Bern and another four years at HC Fribourg-Gottéron.[2] Because he started playing hockey as a child in Switzerland, he could join teams in Switzerland as a non-import player without having Swiss citizenship.

Dubé retired following the 2014-15 season and was named sports director of Swiss NLA side HC Fribourg-Gottéron in March 2015.[3]
