There have been no other details released on the matter, however, the Flames did state that Dube is in the care of health professionals.

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 period.
