Quinn Hughes
19-Year-Old DefensemanD
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hughes got a tiny taste of NHL action at the end of last season after beginning it at the University of Michigan. Billed as a mobile, puck-moving defenseman, the 19-year-old recorded three assists in five games to finish off the 2018-19 campaign, and all signs point to him being part of the Canucks' 2019-20 plans. Assuming he breaks camp with the big club, he'll probably see a good chunk of power-play time. Already a must-own in dynasty formats, Hughes is entering the stage of his NHL career where he now carries serious upside in traditional fantasy formats, so keep him top-of-mind when draft day rolls around as he figures to be a key cog in Vancouver's back end for the foreseeable future.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Set to return to the University of Michigan for the 2018-19 season, Hughes will have value mainly in dynasty leagues and perhaps late in the season if the Canucks decide he's ready for the NHL right out of college. The 18-year-old defenseman dazzled at the World Junior Showcase, including a brilliant helper in overtime against Sweden. While slightly undersized at 5-foot-9, the slick skater makes up for it with his speed and stickhandling ability. While he may not have a huge role in the NHL this season, it shouldn't be too long before Hughes is a staple on the back end for the Canucks.
