Flames' Dube unable to participate in 2021 worlds due to concussion

Dillon Dube left the game between the Flames and Canucks after getting bumped by Travis Hamonic and falling in the corner.

Calgary Flames forward Dillon Dube will not be able to participate in the 2021 world hockey championship due to a concussion he suffered in the final game of the NHL regular season.

Flames general manager Brad Treliving confirmed the news in his end-of-season media availability on Thursday.

Dube, 22, had a goal and an assist in Wednesday's game against the Vancouver Canucks before exiting around the midway point of the second period after a collision with Travis Hamonic in the corner.

The Golden, B.C., native had career highs in goals (11), assists (11) and points (22) in 51 games this season, his third with the Flames since being selected in the second round (56th overall) in 2016.

Dube's teammate Andrew Mangiapane is also among the players selected to represent Canada at the tournament, which gets underway on May 21 in Riga, Latvia.
