In the closing moments of the second period vs the Hartford Wolf Pack, Hershey Bears defender Connor Hobbs blocked a shot with his face.
Let me repeat. Connor Hobbs blocked a shot with his face.

Let me set the scene. Former Hershey Bears forward John Albert took a shot on a breakaway, which was turned away by Vanacek. With Vakacek pulled out of his crease, Hobbs sprawled across the goal line and saved the rebound with his face.
Wow. Just wow.
The move kept the Bears and the Wolf Pack tied at one apiece heading into the third period. Madison Bowey would later score his second goal to give the Bears a 2-1 win.
In summary, this is the most hardcore thing a player has done in the Capitals organization since Mathieu Perreault scored a goal with his tongue.
