Brandon defenceman Ryan Pilon left the game following the hit about 7 1/2 minutes into the third period and did not return.
His status moving forward in the series is uncertain.
The WHL announced the suspension's length as TBD, but Hobbs will miss at least Game #5 in Brandon on Friday night.
He's the third Regina defenceman to be suspended in the 2015 WHL playoffs for an illegal hit.
The Wheat Kings hold a three games to one lead in the Best-of-Seven Eastern Conference semifinal series.
