Biography[edit]

Dubinsky was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and is Jewish.[1][2][3][4][5] As a youth, he played in the 1982 and 1983 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournaments with a minor ice hockey team from the North Shore of Montreal.[6]

Dubinsky was drafted in the 11th round, 226th overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. From there he played for Clarkson University, where he played right wing from 1989-1993 for the Clarkson Golden Knights men's ice hockey team, led the team in scoring his junior year, was named a 1992 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) All-Star honorable mention, and played with future NHLers Craig Conroy and Todd Marchant.[7] After college Dubinsky reported to the Indianapolis Ice of the IHL where he played the majority of the 1993–1994 season before playing 28 games with the Blackhawks that same season.[7]

Dubinsky bounced between the Ice and the Blackhawks before finally earning a full-time roster spot with the Blackhawks for the 1997–98 season. That year he played in all 82 games and scored a career high 18 points. The following season he played one game with the Blackhawks before being traded to the Calgary Flames. He played there for 2 years before rejoining the Blackhawks for the 2000–01 season. The 2001–02 season saw Dubinsky being traded yet again from the Blackhawks, this time to the Nashville Predators.[7] Dubinsky then signed as a free agent with the St. Louis Blues for the 2002–03, but a head injury during the season limited him to only 28 games, and he retired following the season.[citation needed]

He currently works for Glacier Ice Arena in Vernon Hills, Illinois.[citation needed] His ex-wife's name is Cheryl, and they have three sons.[8][9]
