  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Lands eight-year extension

    Hughes (shoulder) signed an eight-year, $64 million extension with the Devils on Tuesday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.

    Hughes will return from a 17-game absence against the Sharks on Tuesday, and he's celebrating with a massive contract extension. After a disappointing rookie campaign, the 20-year-old forward tallied 31 points in 56 games last season followed by three points in the first two games this year. Hughes is now under contract through the end of the 2029-30 campaign.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Ready to rock

    Hughes (shoulder) will be activated off injured reserve and return to action Tuesday versus San Jose.

    Hughes hasn't played Oct. 19 due to a shoulder injury, but he was a full participant at Saturday's practice, which was the first indication he might be an option against the Sharks. Hughes, who's picked up two goals and three points through two games this campaign, is expected to skate on New Jersey's top line and first power-play unit Tuesday.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Full participant at practice

    Hughes (shoulder) was a full participant at Saturday's practice, NHL.com's Catherine Bogart reports.

    Hughes isn't expected to be available for Sunday's matchup with the Flyers, but the 20-year-old pivot is clearly closing in on a return to game action. Hughes picked up two goals and three points through the first two contests of the campaign before suffering his shoulder injury.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Skating in non-contact sweater

    Hughes (shoulder) joined his teammates on the ice Wednesday in a non-contact jersey, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Based on his initial timeline, Hughes is not expected back until early December but the fact that he has begun skating is certainly a good sign. The 2019 first-overall pick will reclaim his spot on the first line once cleared to play, which will bump Nico Hischier down to the second trio. In two games to start the year, Hughes garnered two goals on four shots and one assist.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Considered week-to-week

    Hughes is still week-to-week as he recovers from a dislocated left shoulder, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Hughes has already missed three games after suffering the injury Oct. 19 against Seattle. A more exact return date for the 20-year-old should become clear in the next week or so.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: At least a month from returning

    Hughes (shoulder) will be re-evaluated in five weeks.

    This means Hughes will be back in action no sooner than early December. The 20-year-old forward tallied two goals and an assist in his first two games of the season before dislocating his left shoulder.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Diagnosed with dislocated shoulder

    Hughes sustained a dislocated left shoulder against Seattle on Tuesday but won't need surgery. Additionally, the center was placed on injured reserve and will be re-evaluated in another week.

    Prior to getting hurt, Hughes was off to a strong start to the 2020-21 season, as he racked up two goals on four shots and one assist through the first two games of the year. With his placement on IR, the 20-year-old Florida native will miss at least the team's next two contests. Without Hughes in the lineup, Michael McLeod will get the first crack at a second-line role.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Considered day-to-day

    Hughes (undisclosed) is day-to-day and will be evaluated further Wednesday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.

    Hughes left Tuesday's game versus the Kraken after an awkward hit from Jeremy Lauzon in the first period. Through two games, Hughes has produced two goals and an assist, so fantasy managers and Devils fans will be hoping for good news once his injury is more thoroughly checked out. The Devils' next game is Thursday versus the Capitals.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Not on bench in second period

    Hughes was injured late in the first period and did not return to the bench to start the second period, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

    Hughes was crushed by Kraken blueliner Jeremy Lauzon and went to the locker room early. It's unclear if Hughes will be able to return to the contest.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Scores twice in win

    Hughes scored two goal on three shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

    Hughes shook off a minor injury from late in the preseason and delivered a strong performance Friday. He tallied the Devils' second goal in regulation and then outlasted the Blackhawks' defense before tucking in the overtime winner around Kevin Lankinen. Hughes showed some promise with 31 points and 142 shots on goal in 56 games last year, and he's off to an impressive start in 2021-22, which could be a breakout campaign for the first overall pick from 2019.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Good to go Friday

    Hughes (undisclosed) will be in Friday's lineup against Chicago, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Hughes was dealing with a minor injury during the preseason but he's set for Friday's season opener. The 20-year-old is coming off a solid sophomore campaign where he tallied 31 points and 142 shots in 56 appearances. He'll have a secure role as a top-six center with the Devils this season.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Won't play Thursday

    Hughes (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup against the Islanders on Thursday, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

    Hughes is still expected to be ready for Opening Night against the Blackhawks on Oct. 15 despite missing the final preseason clash. The 20-year-old Hughes registered 31 points in 56 games for the Devils last year and should be able to top that level of productivity with a full 82-game campaign.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Labeled day-to-day

    Hughes (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day after skating on his own Tuesday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports. Hughes won't play in Wednesday's matchup with the Rangers but could still be an option against the Islanders on Thursday.

    Hughes was originally expected to return to practice but was at least able to get on the ice on his own. With 10 days until Opening Night versus the Blackhawks on Oct. 15, Hughes should have plenty of time to get fully fit. Still, if the 20-year-old center is sidelined for any length of time, it will likely mean a bump in ice time for Nico Hischier, who could move into both the first line and No. 1 power-play spots.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Misses practice Monday

    Hughes was absent from practice Monday with an undisclosed injury but is expected to return Tuesday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.

    Hughes obviously won't be in action for Monday's preseason clash with Washington but may still be available Wednesday or Thursday against the Rangers or Islanders, respectively. While it seems Hughes' injury is relatively minor given his expected return, it's certainly worth monitoring his status considering he's the Devils' No. 1 center.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Notches two more assists

    Hughes had two assists and two shots with a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over Boston.

    Hughes set up a pair of Pavel Zacha goals, including a power-play tally in the first period and the game-winner in overtime. It was Hughes' third two-assist performance in the last five contests, giving the 19-year-old sophomore 31 points in 54 games on the year.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Five points in last five games

    Hughes delivered two assists Saturday in a 4-1 win over the Flyers.

    Hughes has stepped up his game of late. He's firing more pucks and has five points (one goal, four assists) in his last five games. The talent is there, but there's still a lot of room for improvement. Hughes needs to invest a lot of time this summer at the face-off dot, where he regularly loses almost two-thirds of the time. But he's set new career marks in goals (11) and assists (18), and sits at minus-2, which is a massive jump from his minus-26 rating as a rookie last year.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Notches pair of assists

    Hughes had two assists and one shot in a 6-4 win over the Flyers on Tuesday.

    Hughes figured in on New Jersey's first two goals, assisting on power-play tallies by Nico Hischier in the first period and Pavel Zacha in the middle frame. The 19-year-old has posted 11 goals and 27 points in 49 games in his sophomore campaign.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Two helpers in Saturday's loss

    Hughes picked up two assists in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers.

    Both helpers came early in the third period as the Devils tried to stage a rally from a 4-1 deficit. Hughes had gone scoreless in his prior three games, and on the season the first overall pick in the 2019 draft has nine goals and 23 points through 43 contests.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Ends slump with three-point night

    Hughes had a goal and two assists in Thursday's 6-3 win over Buffalo.

    Hughes came into this one with just a single assist in his last 10 games, but he busted out of the slump in a big way here. His line with Yegor Sharangovich and Janne Kuokkanen showed excellent chemistry, as each member scored a goal assisted by the other two. Hughes' tally in the first period was his eighth goal of the season, and the 2019 first overall pick has added 12 assists in 38 games.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Two points lead team to win

    Hughes had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 victory over Pittsburgh on Thursday.

    The points were his first in four games. And after a hot start to the season -- six points in his first three games -- Hughes has just 10 points in 24 games since then. Yes, he's talented, but we all need to remember he's a 19-year-old leader on a struggling team. Hughes' production is much better than his rookie year and he'll certainly finish this season with a strong step forward. But the big leap may not come until 2021-22.
