He scored 3 goals with 2 assists and was -2 with 4 penalty minutes in six games for the Canada U16 team.

2013-14: Duke was the third-leading scorer for a Lethbridge team that had the WHL’s worst record. He scored 15 goals with 25 assists and was -47 with 91 assists in 62 games; missing time mid-season due to an upper body injury. Lethbridge won just 12 games . Duke slipped from 65th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s mid-term rankings to 137th in the final rankings and was selected by Minnesota in the sixth round (169th overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft.
Duke is an average-sized player who is sound in all areas of the game. He has shown flashes of offensive upside and has produced consistently on a strong WHL squad.
Duke skated for the Wild in the Traverse City prospects tournament and attended his first NHL camp with Minnesota before being returned to the WHL at the beginning of the 2014-15 season. He played one game with Lethbridge before being traded to Brandon. Going from one the league's worst teams to the first-place Wheat Kings he is in more of a supplementary role. He has provided consistent scoring and two-way play on a team with several gifted scorers. As with most late round picks Duke is more of a projection at this point but his steady play and hockey awareness suggest he can be an effective lower line forward one day.
