  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Supplies only offense in loss

    Hughes scored his 18th goal of the season on a game-high 10 shots on net in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Rangers.

    The 22-year-old also chipped in a blocked shot and a plus-1 rating, impressive considering the final score. Hughes spoiled Igor Shesterkin's shutout bid with a little over two minutes left in the third period, but it was about the only highlight for the Devils on the night. Hughes needed a couple games to shake off the rust after missing most of January and the first game after the All-Star break due to an upper-body injury, but over the last six contests he's racked up three goals and six points while putting 41 shots on net.

    Hughes struck on an end-to-end rush in the second period. After going scoreless in his first two games back from an upper-body injury, Hughes has three points over his last two outings. The 22-year-old superstar has 17 goals, 48 points, 162 shots on net and a minus-6 rating through 36 contests overall as one of the Devils' most productive scorers.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Scores first goal since injury

    Hughes notched a goal and an assist in New Jersey's 3-1 win over Seattle on Monday.

    Monday's goal was Hughes' first in the three games he's played since missing 11 with an upper-body injury. The lack of goals isn't because he's not getting pucks to the net. Hughes has put 18 shots on goal since returning. He's up to 16 goals and 47 points through 35 contests this season.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Timing off but ready for more

    Hughes (upper body) had four shots and finished minus-3 in a 5-3 loss to Calgary on Thursday.

    He played 20:24 after missing 11 games with an upper-body injury. Hughes had a lot of energy, but some of his reads and responsibilities were off. But he should round back into form in short order. Hughes has 45 points (15 goals) in 33 games this season and could threaten the 90-point mark in the second half of the season if he stays healthy.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Returning Thursday

    Hughes (upper body) will return to action versus Calgary on Thursday.

    The New Jersey superstar has missed the last 11 games and will see time alongside Tyler Toffoli (illness) and Alexander Holtz in even-strength situations. Hughes has 15 tallies and 45 points in only 32 contests this season. He will also return to the first power-play unit with Toffoli, Nico Hischier, Jesper Bratt and Luke Hughes.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Skating in a regular jersey

    Hughes (upper body) is now skating in a regular jersey and will be reevaluated before Thursday's contest against Calgary, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Hughes participated in special teams work in practice and also continued skating with other injured players. The 22-year-old has missed the past 10 games -- he sits at 15 goals and 30 assists in 32 appearances on the year. Once healthy, the youngster will be inserted back into the top line with Ondrej Palat and Jesper Bratt.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Making progress in recovery

    Hughes is now considered day-to-day with his upper-body injury and could return to action later this week, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Hughes appears to be close to being cleared for contact. Although it's probably safe to assume he won't be available Tuesday against the Avalanche, it's looking like Hughes could be ready to return Thursday versus Calgary or Saturday against the Hurricanes. The 22-year-old pivot has racked up 15 goals and 45 points through 32 contests this season.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: On injured reserve

    Hughes (upper body) was put on injured reserve Thursday.

    The move is retroactive to Jan. 5, so Hughes can be activated at any time, but he's not expected to return before the All-Star Game anyway. Putting Hughes on IR opened up a roster spot, which the Devils used to claim Nick DeSimone off waivers from Calgary on Thursday. Hughes has 15 goals and 45 points in 32 contests this season.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Won't return before All-Star break

    Hughes (upper body) will remain sidelined through the All-Star Game, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports Monday.

    Hughes will miss at least three more games after having already been sidelined for the previous 10 outings due to his upper-body injury. Nico Hischier should continue to feature in a first-line role due to Hughes being out of the lineup. With 45 points through 32 games this season, Hughes could still challenge for the 90-point threshold if he's able to return shortly after the All-Star break.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Not close to returning

    Hughes (upper body) is still regarded as week-to-week, coach Lindy Ruff told Peter Baugh of The Athletic on Wednesday.

    Hughes hasn't played since Jan. 5. He has 15 goals and 45 points in 32 outings in 2023-24. When Hughes is able to return, he should regain his spot as part of the Devils' top line and first power-play unit. Until Hughes is back, Michael McLeod is projected to continue to serve in a top-six capacity.

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

    Head coach Lindy Ruff said Tuesday that Hughes (upper body) is considered week-to-week, though the forward isn't expected to miss months, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Hughes hasn't been placed on injured reserve yet but the fact that he is viewed as week-to-week means that he could be deactivated in the coming days. Dawson Mercer is currently poised to take on the first-line center role due to Hughes being on the shelf, though Nico Hischier's entire line could be moved up. The 22-year-old Hughes scored just one goal in his last nine contests but did add seven helpers over that stretch, including four with the man advantage.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Won't play Saturday

    Hughes (upper body) is being evaluated and consequently doesn't have a timetable yet, but he will miss Saturday's game against Vancouver, per Sam Kasan of the Devils' official site.

    Hughes was hurt during the Devils' 4-2 victory over Chicago on Friday. He has 15 goals and 45 points in 32 outings this year. New Jersey is also missing Timo Meier (abdomen) and Ondrej Palat (lower body), so their forward corps has been thinned. As a result, Dawson Mercer is slated to be elevated into a top-six role and Graeme Clarke will make his NHL debut Saturday.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Suffers injury Friday

    Hughes (undisclosed) left early during Friday's win over Chicago, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Hughes had two shots on goal and a minus-1 rating in 21:24 of ice time before exiting the contest. There was no update on his status after the game. The star center has racked up 15 goals and 45 points through 32 games this season. New Jersey will immediately be back in action Saturday against the Canucks.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Provides three points vs. Senators

    Hughes supplied a goal and two assists in a 6-2 win over Ottawa on Friday.

    Hughes found the back of the net with the man advantage midway through the first period to tie the game at 1-1 and then registered an assist on Jesper Bratt's power-play goal late in the same frame. Hughes' second helper was on Tyler Toffoli's even-strength tally. Hughes has been held off the scoresheet just once over his last five contests, giving him a goal and six points over that stretch. Through 29 appearances this year, he's provided 15 goals and 43 points. Although the 22-year-old's current pace of 1.48 points per game is likely to dip a touch as the campaign wears on, he should continue to produce at an impressive rate as a member of New Jersey's top line and first power-play unit.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Hat trick in Saturday's win

    Hughes scored three goals, including the game-winner on the power play, in Saturday's 6-3 victory over the Blue Jackets.

    The 22-year-old set the tone for the night by beating Daniil Tarasov on his backhand just 47 seconds into the first period, and Hughes then added tallies in the second and third to complete his second career hat trick. It's his fourth three-point performance in the last nine games, and since returning from a shoulder injury in mid-November, Hughes has produced nine goals and 17 points in 13 contests.

  • Devils' Jack Hughes: Three-point effort in win

    Hughes scored a goal on six shots and added two assists in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Canucks.

    Hughes even finished with the most points of any member of his family in the game -- teammate Luke Hughes had one goal while the Canucks' Quinn Hughes racked up two assists. The 22-year-old center has four goals and seven assists over his last five games. This was Hughes' 10th multi-point effort of the season. He's up to 10 goals, 23 assists, 87 shots on net and a plus-1 rating through 18 appearances in a top-six role.
