Danielle Dube (born March 10, 1976) played for the Canadian National women's ice hockey team from 1994 to 1998 and from 2000 to 2002.[1] She was a late cut from the 1998 and 2002 Canadian Olympic teams.

On December 11, 2002, Danielle Dube became the third female goaltender to start in goal for a professional men's team.[2] Dube was the goalie for the Long Beach Ice Dogs in a loss against the San Diego Gulls.[3] She stopped 12 of 13 shots for the Ice Dogs.[4] In 2008, she had considered approaching the Vancouver Canucks, with hopes of earning a recommendation to play for the ECHL's Victoria Salmon Kings.[5]

On August 26, 2011, she participated in the Longest Ice Hockey Game 4 CF, at Canlan Ice Sports Burnaby 8 Rinks in Burnaby, British Columbia. The goal was to play for the next 10 days as 40 women attempted to set a new Guinness World Record for playing the longest hockey game while also raising funds and awareness for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.[6]

Dube is currently studying at the University of British Columbia. She joined the UBC Thunderbirds women's hockey program as a player at the beginning of the 2012-13 Canada West season and helped the team to the greatest turnaround in Canadian Interuniversity Sport history.[7]
