Devils' Jack Hughes: Struggles as a rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes finished the 2019-20 campaign with just seven goals, 21 points and an ugly minus-26 rating in 61 games.

Hughes was just 18 years old for the entirety of the season and simply didn't look physically ready for the NHL at times, but you don't see No. 1 overall picks playing in the minors anymore. The American pivot still has an exceedingly bright future ahead of him, and there's no reason to believe that he won't ultimately live up to his lofty expectations, particularly once New Jersey's supporting cast begins to improve.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Finishes minus-2 against Blues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes posted two shots and a minus-2 rating across 18:05 in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Blues.

Hughes flanked Nico Hischier on the first line in this contest, as the 18-year-old shifted away from his natural center position. Considering the rookie has just 12 even-strength points over 51 games, this could aid his transition to the NHL ranks. Hughes has flashed his upside this year by utilizing his high-end skating abilities to split defenders and make plays, but it seems his fantasy value is best-suited for dynasty formats and deep redraft leagues at this time. Nevertheless, increased top-six duties should raise his ceiling going forward.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Benching intended to be reset
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes was benched in the second period of Thursdays 6-5 shootout loss to the Predators, reports Mike Morreale of NHL.com.

His coach Alain Nasreddine said Hughes' game lacked "effort, attention to detail, getting involved and engaged in the game." The benching for the young phenom, who failed to record a point in the high-scoring affair, was intended to be a quick reset. The kid is competitive, so watch for Hughes to show his coach something next game out.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (illness) will be back in action against the Capitals on Thursday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Hughes logged just 7:15 of ice time against the Maple Leafs on Tuesday before his illness forced him to leave the game. With the center healthy, he is set to return to a third-line role while reclaiming his spot on the power play. The 18-year-old has notched six goals and 11 helpers in 38 appearances this season and could still challenge for the 40-point mark.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Maple Leafs due to an illness, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Hughes left the bench in the second period and returned, but he's been shut down for the rest of the contest. The 18-year-old finished with 7:15 of ice time and a minus-1 rating. The Devils have two more stops on the road trip, and he'll look to get healthy for Thursday's matchup versus Washington.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Picks up helper in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (upper body) managed an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Lightning.

Hughes missed five games with the injury, but he was able to help out on Andy Greene's second-period tally. In 37 games this season, the 18-year-old center has picked up 17 points and 79 shots on goal. Hughes hasn't been much of a factor on offense yet, but the first-overall pick from 2019 should find his groove eventually.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (upper body) will be in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Lightning, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

The 18-year-old will finally make his return to the lineup after missing the past five games with the upper-body issue. Hughes will be a solid addition to the lineup, as he's racked up 16 points in 36 games in his first full NHL season. It's likely that Hughes will return to the lineup in a top-six offensive role and on the power play.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Not with team in Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (upper body) didn't travel to Washington with the team and will miss a fifth consecutive game Saturday, Chris Ryan of NJ.com reports.

Hughes continues to sit out, and he'll be hard-pressed to heal up in time for the second leg of New Jersey's back-to-back set Sunday at home against the Lightning. The first overall selection from the 2019 draft remains stuck on six goals and 10 assists in 36 games played.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (upper body) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Hughes will miss a fourth straight game Thursday, but his upper-body issue isn't believed to be overly serious, so the Devils are clearly just exercising extreme caution with the first overall pick from the 2019 draft. The 18-year-old rookie will be reevaluated ahead of Saturday's clash with the Capitals.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Will stay on shelf Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (upper body) won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Islanders, Matt Loughlin of Devils radio reports.

Coach Alain Nasreddine has emphasized that Hughes' injury isn't serious, but it continues to linger, forcing the 18-year-old to miss a third straight game. Hughes has showcased flashed this season with 16 points -- six on the man advantage -- through 36 games. Ben Street will continue to work as the third-line center in Hughes' place.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Unavailable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (upper body) won't be in uniform for Saturday's game against the Avalanche, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Hughes is scheduled for his second consecutive absence while he tends to an upper-body issue. The rookie hasn't lived up to the No. 1 overall billing as of yet, collecting just 16 points (six goals, 10 assists) through his first 36 games, but he's still just getting his feet wet with the Devils. Hughes' next opportunity to retake the ice will arrive Tuesday when New Jersey hosts the Islanders.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Dealing with upper-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (upper body) won't play Thursday against the Islanders, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Hughes was on the ice for morning skate, so although he won't be available against the Islanders, it wouldn't be surprising to see him return to action Saturday against Colorado. With Hughes unavailable, Kevin Rooney will draw into the lineup Thursday.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Not expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (undisclosed) isn't expected to play Thursday against the Islanders, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

Hughes was on the ice for morning skate, but didn't participate in line rushes, which was the first sign that he might not be available for Thursday's tilt. The specific nature of the rookie pivot's issue remains a mystery, but the Devils should provide an update on his status ahead of Saturday's clash with Colorado.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Buries OT winner versus Senators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes recorded two points in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win against Ottawa.

Hughes tallied his first point of the night on Nikita Gusev's power-play goal in the second period, picking up a secondary assist on the goal. The 18-year-old then ended things 54 seconds into overtime, beating Craig Anderson to give New Jersey the extra point Sunday. Saddled with high expectations entering 2019-20, Hughes has enjoyed a pedestrian rookie campaign, producing 16 points in 35 games.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Sparks massive rally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes scored a goal on five shots in Monday's 7-1 win over the Blackhawks.

Hughes' equalizer at 14:46 of the first period was the first of seven straight goals by the Devils. The first-overall pick from 2019 hadn't scored since Nov. 7, a span of 18 games. The 18-year-old hasn't been an instant spark of offense this season with 14 points and 70 shots in 33 contests, but he'll likely grow into a top-line center role in the next couple of years.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Provides assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes had the lone helper on Taylor Hall's third-period tally, which brought the Devils within a goal before Rocco Grimaldi answered for the Predators. Hughes has just three assists over his last eight games, having missed time with a lower-body injury during that span. The first overall pick from 2019 has 12 points and 50 shots through 26 appearances in his rookie season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (lower body) feels as though he'll be healthy enough to return to the lineup Friday against the Blackhawks.

The Devils have yet to release an official update on Hughes' status for Friday's contest, but all signs point to the 18-year-old rookie returning to action against Chicago. The 5-foot-10 American, who's notched four goals and 11 points in 24 games this campaign, should slot into a top-six role and a spot on New Jersey's first power-play unit against the Blackhawks.

Devils' Jack Hughes: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
