    Followed by the AHL for a minimum of 1 year, possibly 2 then finally the NHL. Best case scenario is 21-22 for him to be in the show, especially since Lou has a history of not rushing prospects.
    He's not eligible to the AHL in a year, still has two years of junior eligibility remaining.

    18 year old defensemen simply don't project into the NHL, unless we are talking about the super, mega, king kong future stars like Rasmus Dahlin. I'd expect at least 2-3 seasons before Dobson gets a sniff.
