The younger brother of former first overall pick Jack Hughes will be attending the University of Michigan next season. Hughes is a fantastic skater who defends quite well and has been improving offensively. He’s creative and is a good passer.
Hughes is yet another promising youngster in the Devils’ prospect pipeline and will look to make an impact once he is ready to make his NHL debut.
