Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Norm Dube
Left-winger Norm Dube played briefly for the Kansas City Scouts in the mid-70s. He went on to enjoy a fairly successful tenure in the WHA and the minor leagues.

Born in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Dube was taken 90th overall by the LA Kings in 1971 after he fired 72 goals for the home town Castors of the QMJHL. That year he also earned a place on the league's second all-star team. After spending a year at the University of Sherbrooke, the young winger recorded two straight 30-goal seasons for the AHL's Springfield Indians.

In June, 1974 Dube was picked by Kansas City in the Expansion Draft and scored eight goals and formed a decent line with Gary Coalter and Richard Lemieux. By the next season the Scouts were going in a different direction with personnel and Dube was once again a 30-goal scorer in Springfield.

Dube was picked up by the WHA's Quebec Nordiques in June, 1976 then started the next season in the NAHL. Part way through the year he was recalled and scored 15 goals in the last 39 games of the season then helped the team win the Avco Cup. Dube spent another year and-a-half with the Nords before he was sent down to the AHL. He retired in 1980 after a stellar year with the Nova Scotia Voyageurs in which he led the AHL with 101 points, was presented the Les Cunningham Award as league MVP and named to the first all-star team.
