Islanders sign 12th overall pick Noah Dobson to entry-level deal

Noah Dobson left PEI to play hockey when he was 14. Luckily part of that time was spent in Bathurst, New Brunswick where he has deep family roots.

The New York Islanders have signed Noah Dobson to a three-year entry-level deal, the team announced Monday.

Dobson was the 12th overall selection in June’s draft. The 18-year-old is coming off a 69-point season with the QMJHL’s Acadie-Bathurst Titan, helping the franchise win its first ever Memorial Cup.

The Summerside, P.E.I. native spent much of the 2017-18 in the top five of many draft rankings as perhaps the best all-around defencemen in the class behind consensus No. 1 Rasmus Dahlin. He fell to No. 12 thanks to a run of forwards being taken early, pushing back what was a deep defensive class.
