Capitals prospect Connor Hobbs retires at 23 after several major injuries and seven concussions: ‘I was really in a dark place’
Former Capitals defenseman Connor Hobbs is retiring from the NHL at age 23. The Regina Leader-Post’s Greg Harder first reported the news.
Hobbs was initially a restricted free agent before the Capitals decided to not tender him a qualifying order on October 7, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Instead of signing elsewhere, Hobbs chose to end his NHL career, but will still play hockey – albeit not professionally.
