Left winger Gilles Dube played briefly with the Montreal Canadiens and Detroit Red Wings in the 40s and 50s. He also excelled in the minors and at the senior level.

Born in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Dube played junior with the local Randies and the Montreal Junior Canadiens. He stayed in his home town and played with the QPHL's St. Xavier club and the Saints of the Quebec Senior League. In 1949-50, Dube recorded three points in 12 games as an injury fill in with the Habs.

After gaining confidence in the NHL, Dube spent most of the next five years in the AHL and QHL. He hit double figures in goals each season and played an abrasive style in the corners. In April, 1954, the veteran winger was signed to a three game trial with the Red Wings and wound up playing two playoff matches. Dube then enjoyed three fine years with the Shawinigan Cataracts of the QHL before retiring in 1957. The high points were winning the league championship in 1955 and leading all players with 37 goals the following year.
