2015 Draft Spotlight: Connor Hobbs

Defenceman Connor Hobbs is back on WHL ice after sitting out for almost three months waiting for a trade. Hobbs began the year as a member of the Medicine Hat Tigers but knew early in the season that it wasn't a fit for him so asked to be moved. That trade didn't happen until the days leading up to the January 10th WHL trade deadline when he was sent east to the Regina Pats. 

When Hobbs joined us on The Pipeline Show right before Christmas, he was still sitting by his phone waiting for the call. He'd temporarily joined the SJHL's Nipawin Hawks but his heart was in the WHL. We spoke about his reasons for wanting out of Medicine Hat and his concerns of what the layoff would mean to his draft stock. 

If you missed our 2015 Draft Spotlight segment with Hobbs on December 20th, we have it for you after the jump.
