Capitals’ Prospect Connor Hobbs Bone-Crusher Hit in WHL Playoffs


GORD WALDNER / THE STARPHOENIX

Capitals prospect Connor Hobbs has had an impressive 2016-2017 season for the Regina Pats of the WHL. As you may recall, Hobbs set a franchise record for scoring by a Pats defenseman this season – a mark that has stood for more than 30 years.  In addition to his scoring prowess, Hobbs also plays a fairly gritty style of defense, as he demonstrated on Monday night.

The hit came in the third period of Monday night’s playoff game against the Swift Current Broncos.

 

The Capitals signed Connor Hobbs to a three-year, entry-level contract, on July 1st, 2016. Hobbs is expected to join the Hershey Bears this fall.
