While many fans in Quebec are hoping for a great playoff run for Patrick Roy and the Islanders, here comes some very bad news.

Injured during the game against the Montreal Canadiens, the Islanders' best player, Noah Dobson, has been absent for a third straight day, and it bodes absolutely nothing good.

Injury for Noah Dobson: the worst possible scenario confirmed for Patrick Roy

The news from Long Island is indeed worrying, and if Patrick Roy really had to lose Dobson for the start of the playoffs, he would probably have to say "goodbye" to his chances of causing a surprise.

Already, the Islanders unfortunately do not have the most talented team on paper, and if their best element is taken away, it will become very difficult for them to compete.

A case to be closely followed over the next few hours.

The most likely scenario seems to be that the Islanders will have to survive the first games of the series without Dobson, waiting for him to join the lineup.

But, will he be at 100%?

Dobson, 24 years old, 6 feet 4 inches and 200 pounds, is a right-handed defenseman who has an impressive 70 points in 79 games this season for the Islanders (plus/minus of +12).

The 12th overall pick in the first round of 2018 is the second highest scorer on his team.
