BATHURST, N.B. – It was a big weekend for Acadie-Acadie-Bathurst Titan rookie defenceman Noah Dobson of Summerside.

After contributing a pair of assists and going a plus-3 in an 11-3 victory over the Moncton Wildcats on Saturday, Dobson carried that momentum over to Sunday’s home game against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.
Dobson had a goal, assist, another plus-3 rating and was named the game’s first star in the Titan’s 4-3 win.

Dobson’s goal at 11:52 of the third period gave Acadie-Bathurst a 4-2 lead.
Dobson, a 2016 first-round pick of the Titan, sixth overall, has three goals and 10 helpers for 13 points, and is a plus-19 in 37 matches.
