Dorsett played major junior hockey with the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League (WHL) and helped them win the Ed Chynoweth Cup as WHL champions in 2007. Dorsett established himself as a gritty player in Medicine Hat, leading the team in penalty minutes in 2006–07 while finishing tied for second in team scoring with 64 points.
Dorsett was drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets 189th overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. Graduating from major junior, he spent 2007–08 with the Syracuse Crunch, the Blue Jackets' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate. He scored his first NHL goal the following season on October 21, 2008 against Roberto Luongo in a 4-2 win against the Vancouver Canucks.
During the lockout shortened 2012–13 season, Dorsett was included in the deadline trade by the Blue Jackets, along with Derick Brassard, John Moore and a sixth-round pick to the New York Rangers in exchange for Marian Gaborik and minor league players Blake Parlett and Steven Delisle on April 3, 2013.
