    Islanders' Noah Dobson: Not in lineup for Game 5

    Noah Dobson is not in the lineup and will again sit out as a healthy scratch in Game 5 on Tuesday against the Lightning.Dobson made some waves by taking a twirl for pregame warmups, and though head coach Barry Trotz is rolling with seven defensemen with the New York Islanders facing elimination, it's veteran Johnny Boychuk that got the nod. The 20-year-old Dobson will need to wait to make his postseason debut.

    Islanders' Noah Dobson: Expected to ride bench

    Noah Dobson is expected to be a healthy scratch Monday in Arizona, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.Coach Barry Trotz seemed to be strongly hinting after the loss to Vegas on Saturday that it might be time for Dobson to sit a game or two in favor of Sebastian Aho. Dobson had a rough game versus Vegas with several giveaways and also took a penalty while the New York Islanders were on the power play. The Islanders have admitted that they rushed Dobson a bit this season due to injuries and lack of organizational depth on defense, so fantasy owners will need to be patient with the youngster.

    Islanders' Noah Dobson: Still just one goal

    Noah Dobson only has one goal and four assists in 28 games so far this season.Those might concern when you realize Dobson is expected to be an offensive defenseman for the New York Islanders. The good news is that Dobson does have a zero rating so his defense isn't suffering and the Islanders have admitted that Dobson is only up with the team because of a lack of depth on defense in the organization. Dobson was a healthy scratch most nights before the team lost Adam Pelech (Achilles) for the season. It didn't help any that the only veteran defender they had at the AHL level, Thomas Hickey, has also just returned from injury. Dobson only has one point in his last 10 games but his future is secure with the Islanders and he should only get better the more he plays.

    Islanders' Noah Dobson: Learning on the job

    Noah Dobson has played in 11 straight games since the season-ending injury to Adam Pelech (Achilles), Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.Before the injury, Dobson had been a healthy scratch more often than not. Over the past 11 games, Dobson has scored his first and only NHL goal and added two assists to go along with a rating of minus-1. Dobson's playing time has run the gamut of just over eight minutes to as much as 20+ minutes per game as coach Barry Trotz tries to determine how best to use his prized defensive prospect. Dobson is a regular defender for now, at least until the New York Islanders acquire another defenseman via a trade or Thomas Hickey recovers from a lower-body injury and proved he is once again ready to play at the NHL level.

    Islanders' Noah Dobson: Marks first NHL goal

    Noah Dobson scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Red Wings.The New York Islanders piled on the Red Wings, and the 20-year-old Dobson notched his first NHL goal off a feed from Ryan Pulock. Dobson -- the 12th-overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft -- has enjoyed an increase in ice time with Adam Pelech (Achilles) out, as he's averaged 19:19 over the last two games. He was highly productive on offense in juniors, so Dobson's development is worth keeping an eye on for dynasty purposes.

    Islanders' Noah Dobson: Playing time could increase

    Noah Dobson could be in line for a regular role due to the loss of Adam Pelech (Achilles) for the next 4-6 months, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.Since Dobson has been with the New York Islanders all season and is a top prospect, he would be the logical choice to jump into the lineup. The problem, however, is that Pelech was a left-handed shot, while Dobson is right handed. So inserting him into the lineup would give the Isles four right-handers and only two left-handed shots. Sebastian Aho, who was called up from the AHL on Friday to take Pelech's roster spot, is a left-handed shot. Coach Barry Trotz could opt to insert Aho to keep his pairings balanced.

    Islanders' Noah Dobson: Healthy scratch Tuesday

    Noah Dobson was a healthy scratch for the sixth time in seven games Tuesday versus the Capitals.Dobson has only played in 11 games this season. It would seem obvious that his future would be best served playing every day in the AHL if the New York Islanders are not going to play him, but several injuries at that level have forced the Islanders to keep Dobson with the team.
