September 2019 – Hofer was sent back to Portland on the 17th and heads into his third WHL season as the number one goaltender for the Winterhawks. Through his first two games Hofer has been solid posting a .922 save percentage and 2.00 goals against average. Hofer has already tasted AHL competition and should prove to be too good for the WHL at this point in his career. There are a lot of players ahead of Hofer, which means the Blues have the luxury of letting him marinate for a few more years in the AHL. Sam Stern

May 2018 – For most of the season Hofer was anchored by an abysmal Swift Current Broncos team that won just 11 games, and he was later dealt to Portland. The 18-year-old took several steps in his development this year. He kept his save percentage above .900 during his time with Swift Current and saw his numbers improve with Portland. The season all culminated with him signing an ELC and making his first professional start with the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL. Sam Stern
