YORKTON TERRIERS, LW
It certainly hasn’t been a season to remember for the Yorkton Terriers, but the way Quinten Hobbs is finishing off his second year with the club it looks like they have something to look forward to for next year.
The 5-foot-7, 177-pound Hobbs has more than doubled his season output recently having collected four goals and four assists in his last five games giving him 9-6-15 totals for the season. The recent surge in scoring has come at a time when Yorkton was still fighting for its playoff lives and while that prospect has come to an end it will be interesting to see how the Deloraine. Man., product finishes out the campaign.
The 19-year-old forward has also surpassed his point total put up last year as a rookie with the Terriers as in 42 games a year ago Hobbs posted 5-5-10 totals.
Prior to moving west to Yorkton, Hobbs spent two seasons with the Southwest Cougars of the Manitoba Midget AAA Hockey League and in 80 games during that span he notched 13 goals and added 21 assists.
The Terriers season will come to an end in two weeks, but a strong building block looks to be in place for next season and Hobbs will certainly be looking to continue adding hope to the future with a strong finish to the season.
