New York Islanders defensive prospect, Noah Dobson, had himself a productive week. He netted four goals in three games with six points in total.
The New York Islanders were jumping for joy when Oliver Wahlstrom and Noah Dobson fell in their lap this past June. Dobson was expected to go top-10, and it’s easy to see why many projected him as a top-10 pick.
Noah’s a right-handed shooting defenseman with good size and big offensive upside. He started this year with Acadie-Bathurst in the QMJHL. Before he was traded he had 16 points (9 goals, 7 assists) in 28 games.
After he was moved to Rouyn-Noranda he’s begun to catch fire. This past week, Dobson had four goals in three games playing for the Huskies. He also had himself a multi-point game in each of their contests as well.
Now, Dobson finds himself with 32 points (5 goals, 27 assists) in 22 games since joining the Huskies. On the season, he’s combined for 48 points (14 goals, 34 assists) in 50 games. If he plays the same number of games he did last year, 67, he’ll finish with 64 points.
That’s slightly less than what he finished with last year (69) but still an effective season for a defenseman. Dobson got a nice look in training camp this past year, expect that to happen again in Fall of 2019.
