Justin Shugg: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Justin Shugg.
Shugg was selected by Carolina in the fourth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The diminutive winger (5-foot-9, 175 pounds) tore it up in the junior leagues, accumulating a total of 166 points (80 G, 86 A) the past two seasons with the Windsor Spitfires and the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors, respectively. In all likelihood, he will need to prove his worth in the minors before the 'Canes give him a serious look in the NHL.
With most of the attention rightfully centered on No. 1 draft pick Taylor Hall in the 2010 Entry Draft, the Hurricanes selected Shugg, Hall's junior-league teammate, in round four. Something to like about Shugg is his confidence, the result of having captured two consecutive Memorial Cup honors with the Windsor Spitfires (OHL). He's expected to get another go-around with Windsor in 2009-10, building upon his robust totals of 115 points in 158 games, among three seasons with the Spitfires.
