The 2019-20 campaign was a humbling experience for Jack Hughes.
Hughes went into his rookie campaign with a lot of hype surrounding him, but he ended up with just seven goals and 21 points in 61 games. “I'm not saying (Hughes) underestimated the National Hockey League by any means," Devils GM Tom Fitzgerald said, "but I don't know if you realize that he would be the first to admit, like he did to me, how good (NHL) defenseman defend … their reach, their skating ability, how they close, how they take the time and space away. I'm not sure that was something that he prepared himself for. That's one of the things he's learned. I think he's learned that it's a tough league for an 18-year-old, but with all that being said, I'm very proud of what he accomplished." While Hughes didn't have the type of rookie season we typically see out of a first overall pick, he still has sky high potential. He'll be a solid bargain bin option in drafts for the 2020-21 campaign as long as he slips down to near the end of drafts. Apr 18 9:21 am (EST)
