Dobson is expected to replace Johnny Boychuk (face) in the lineup Thursday when the Islanders take on the Senators, Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.

Boychuk needed 90 stitches to fix a skate blade slice to his eyelid Tuesday. Dobson will take his place in the lineup until Boychuk is ready to return to the Islanders, but as of now, no timetable has been set.
