Wade Dubielewicz was born on January 30, 1979 in the Canadian Province of Saskatchewan. Dubie, as he's fondly known throughout the locker room, picked up goaltending while playing on his older brother"s team at the age of four. The brother would rotate playing goalie and for one tournament it was Dubie's turn. The brothers won every game and Dubie was named goaltender of the tournament.

Twenty-four years later, Dubie backstopped the Islanders to one of the most improbable playoff berths in NHL history.
