New York Islanders
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Dobson was largely sheltered by the Islanders during his rookie year in 2019-20, but the reigns came off last season, as he played in 46 of New York's 56 regular-season games, with the majority of those being missed due to a stint on the NHL COVID-19 protocols list. Dobson's overall offensive production was minimal (three goals, 14 points), but five of those points came with the man advantage, the result of 1:51 worth of power-play time per game. Dobson generally played on the third pair alongside veteran Andy Greene, a role he is expected to reprise next season with the Islanders expected to return most of their blue-line corps. Dobson makes for a far more interesting keeper/dynasty stash than a redraft option. Read Past Outlooks

June 7, 2021
Dobson had a pair of power-play assists in Monday's 5-4 win over the Bruins in Game 5 on Monday.
ANALYSIS
The 21-year-old blueliner figured in on tallies by Mathew Barzal in the first period and Jordan Eberle in the second, helping anchor a New York power play that hit paydirt on each of its first three tries. Dobson has registered six assists in 11 postseason games, with four of them coming in this series.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Dobson could become a permanent NHL player in 2020-21 after he had seven points in 34 games as a rookie last year. Dobson made the jump straight from junior, but he often found himself in the press box as a healthy scratch last season. With the logjam cleared on the Islanders' blue line, Dobson will likely get some valuable experience in a third-pairing role this year. He's worth hanging onto or adding in dynasty formats, but with only second unit power-play usage and marginal even-strength time, the 20-year-old defenseman is probably best left undrafted in single-year leagues. He'll likely approach the 15-point mark with unspectacular non-scoring numbers.
The Islanders have a crowded blue line, but the organization is very excited about this 19-year-old. While he has yet to play in the AHL, Dobson proved to be a complete player in the QMJHL last season, scoring 15 goals and 52 points in 56 games. He also had 60 PIM and a plus-10 rating. In the QMJHL playoffs, Dobson posted eight goals and 29 points with a plus-28 rating and 20 PIM in 20 games. He probably won't start the 2019-20 campaign in the NHL, but the 2018 first-round pick will be with the Islanders sooner rather than later. Dobson should be stashed in all dynasty formats.
The second of the Islanders' back-to-back selections in the first round of the 2018 draft, Dobson comes off an All-Star campaign in the QMJHL having posted career-high marks in goals (17), assists (52), power-play goals (11) and shots on goal (276). A bit more defensive-minded than some of the other rearguards selected early in the draft, his eventual fantasy ceiling may be slightly lower, but he could still be a useful piece in deep dynasty leagues and eventually redraft formats.
