Both are dealing with lower-body injuries and have not skated with the team. The Islanders break for All-Star festivities following Saturday night’s game at UBS Arena against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Dobson last appeared in a game for the Islanders on Dec. 21 against the Carolina Hurricanes. He was considered a game-time decision against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday and then considered day-to-day after. 

The 23-year-old blueliner is the Islanders’ top playmaking defenseman and a fixture of their future, posting 10 points and 27 assists (37 points) in 48 games. 

Fasching was placed on injured reserve Monday after picking up a knock during the Islanders’ Dec. 18 game against the Boston Bruins. 

Called up in December during a slew of injuries, Fasching has done well enough to establish regular playing time within the team’s bottom six, recording three goals and two assists in 19 games
