In the 1986-87 season, Dobbin dressed for 12 NHL games with the Flyers, managing a pair of goals and an assist. The following year Dobbin played in 21 games for the Flyers, which would be the most games he'd play in any one NHL season. He had three goals and five assists.

He continued to play pro hockey until the end of the 1998-99 season.
