At a press conference, the head coach of the New York Islanders, Patrick Roy, announced some very bad news involving Noah Dobson.

Their game against the Montreal Canadiens left some serious consequences, and it's really sad for Patrick Roy and his team, but Noah Dobson is injured.

A worrying injury for Noah Dobson, at the worst possible time!

At the worst time, they indeed lose their best defenseman and possibly their best player.

Already, the Islanders do not have the most talented team on paper, and the loss of Dobson is a significant one.

Dobson, 24 years old, 12th overall pick in 2018 (1st round), is a right-handed defenseman who has accumulated an incredible 70 points in 79 games this season.

He had collected 49 points in 78 games last season.

Dobson would have been injured on the following sequence, against the Canadiens:
