Connor Hobbs to Miss Six To Eight Weeks With Fractured Wrist

The Hershey Bears announced today that defenseman Connor Hobbs is expected to miss six to eight weeks with a fractured left wrist. The announcement was made by Hershey’s Vice President of Hockey Operations, Bryan Helmer. 

Hobbs, 20, was injured in the first period of Hershey’s 4-1 loss to Toronto on Saturday. The defender did not return to the game after colliding with the boards in front of Hershey’s bench.

Earlier in the day the Bears announced the recall of Defenseman Kris Bindulis, which sent signals that Hobbs injury was likely, pretty significant.


Bindulis, 22, was re-assigned to the Stingrays earlier this week, and made his ECHL debut on Friday at Greenville. He has also appeared in one game for Hershey, making his AHL debut on Oct. 22 at Rockford.

Bindulis was signed to a three-year, entry-level deal by the Washington Capitals on Mar. 7. Last season, he recorded 12 points (one goal, 11 assists) in 28 collegiate games with Lake Superior State.
