Dillon Dube is on a roll.

The Calgary Flames prospect recorded six points in a pair of Kelowa Rockets' wins last week, bringing him to 19 points in 14 games this season.

The 18-year-old is averaging 1.35 points-per-game, which leads all Rockets' skaters, and is on a five-game point streak that dates back to early December, prior to Dube joining Canada at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship. During that stretch, the Cochrane, AB product has 10 points.

On Wednesday, Dube was named the first star in the Rockets' 4-3 win over the Victoria Royals thanks to his one-goal, two-point performance.

Dube tied the game at 2 in the second period, taking a pass from Cal Foote and dangling around a Victoria defender. He pulled the goaltender towards him, out-waited him and fired the shot over his glove at the 8:32 mark.

He followed up that performance with his first career hat trick and four points in Kelowna's 9-2 win over Victoria on Friday.

Dube scored twice in the span of 19 seconds in the first period, netting his first goal at 7:54 and then the game-winner at 8:15.

On his first tally, he went in from his own blueline, cut through two Victoria defenders in the slot and wristed a shot over the goaltender's stick to give the Rockets a 2-1 lead. Shortly after, he corralled a rebound at the side of the net and whacked it past the goaltender for his fifth goal of the season.

Dube completed the hat trick mid-way through the second period, sidestepping a defender at the top of the face-off circle and snapping a shot short-side.

He also assisted on Reid Gardiner's second period power play goal.

Dube was named the first star of the game for his efforts.
