Connor Hobbs to miss six to eight weeks with fractured wrist

The Hershey Bears announced Sunday afternoon that rookie defenseman Connor Hobbs will miss six to eight weeks of action with a fractured wrist, sustained Saturday night in Hershey’s loss to Toronto.

Hobbs injured himself after Marlies defensemen Timothy Liljegrena moved out the way of a check Hobbs was attempting.

He did not return to the game after the injury, as Hershey would go on to lose 4-1 to Toronto.

The Bears had recalled defenseman Kris Bindilus from South Carolina in a move prior to the injury announcement of Hobbs Sunday morning.
