Hughes has avoided structural damage in his foot and is expected to begin skating soon, Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet.ca reports. The blueliner has not made an appearance for the Canucks since rounding out his campaign with the University of Michigan, but it sounds like he may debut for the club before the season concludes. Hughes -- picked seventh overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft -- should eventually provide Vancouver with another offensive threat along the blue line, as he's coming off a point-per-game collegiate season.
Hughes (foot) will be reevaluated Wednesday, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports. Selected seventh overall in the 2018 draft, Canucks fans have been clamoring to see Hughes at the top level, especially with Vancouver about to be eliminated from playoff contention. However, the fear is that the foot injury will spoil such an opportunity for the University of Michigan product. We'll get a better read on his near-term fantasy prospects once the team discloses a clear prognosis.
Hughes is dealing with a bone bruise in his foot and will be reevaluated in a week, Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet reports. This update comes courtesy of head coach Travis Green. Canucks fans will have to wait a little longer before they get to see the seventh-overall selection from the 2018 draft make his NHL debut, as the team has little reason to take any chances with Hughes' health.
Hughes signed a three-year, entry-level deal with the Canucks on Sunday. Hughes wasted little time in taking the next step in his hockey career after his season at the University of Michigan concluded. The seventh overall selection from the 2018 draft could join the club as early as Wednesday against the Rangers. Dynasty leaguers need to act fast.
Hughes (foot) is in the lineup for the University of Michigan's game against the University of Minnesota on Saturday. Hughes was listed as questionable after blocking a shot in Friday's contest. This is a non-issue moving forward.
