Dillon Dube is heading east.
The Calgary Flames prospect, who was selected in the second round (56th overall) of this year's draft, has been invited to Hockey Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek Summer Development Camp.
The camp, which takes place in Toronto, ON and Plymouth, MI, runs July 30-Aug. 2. It is a key part of the selection process for Canada's 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship 22-man roster and features games against the USA, Finland and Sweden.
The 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship runs Dec. 26, 2016 to Jan. 5, 2017 in Montreal, QC and Toronto, ON.
Dube is coming off a strong 2015-16 campaign in which he tallied 26 goals and 66 points in 65 regular season games with the Kelowna Rockets in the Western Hockey League. In the Rockets deep playoff run this spring, he scored two goals and seven points in 18 skates.
During his rookie season with the Rockets in 2014-15, Dube helped his club capture the Ed Chynoweth Cup after sweeping the Brandon Wheat Kings in the WHL Final. Dube managed five goals and 11 points in that postseason run.
In addition to his accomplishments in the WHL, Dube won gold with Canada at the 2015 Ivan Hlinka tournament, scoring one goal and three points in four games.
