Hobbs suffered the injury during the Bears’ game against Bridgeport on January 4, but finished the game. Hobbs has not played since then and went under the knife 25 days later to repair the issue. There is no video of the injury online
Durability has been an issue for the rugged Capitals’ 2015 fifth-round pick. Over his last three seasons pro, Hobbs has only played 119 of a possible 228 games missing 17 games during the 2018-19 season and 32 during 2017-18 after suffering a broken wrist on a big hit.
The Canadian rearguard, who played junior hockey with the Regina Pats, scored 31 goals and had 85 points during his final year in the WHL, but his production has not translated to the AHL. Hobbs has scored seven goals and 36 points in three AHL seasons total.
