A few fans are taking notice of new Broncos defenceman Jake Hobson already. Acquired from Portland for a 5th round bantam draft pick, Hobson looks like he could be another young defensive find like a Brett Lernout and Sahvan Khaira with the potential to develop into a very good top four option in Swift Current. He skates well, moves the puck well and seems like a pretty poised young defender. There will be ups and downs as there are for every young defenceman, but it looks like he was a good bet. The former second team all-star in the Saskatchewan Midget AAA league is excited to be playing in his home province again. I caught up with him before Saturday’s game against Tri-City.
