The Calgary Flames will be without the services of forward Dillon Dube for an indefinite period of time.

On Sunday, the team announced that Dube is taking a leave of absence to focus on his mental health.

"Dillon Dube has been granted an indefinite leave of absence from the team while he attends to his mental health. Dillon is under the care of health professionals, and we request that Dillon's privacy is respected during this time." The Flames said.

In 43 games this season, Dube has seven points (three goals, four assists), eight penalty minutes and is a minus-13.

Everyone here at Blade of Steel is thinking of Dube and hopes to see him back on the ice when the time is appropriate.
