2021 Fantasy Outlook
Hughes is undoubtedly one of the most gifted scorers among young NHL blueliners after putting up 41 points in 56 games during his second full season. One thing that will keep him out of the same echelon as Cale Makar, Adam Fox and Miro Heiskanen is Hughes' lack of refinement in his own zone, as evidenced by his minus-24 rating last year. While the Canucks have upgraded their roster, it's unclear if Hughes will be able to take the next step to become a solid all-around defender. He'll be an elite option in fantasy formats that focus on scoring and power-play output, but a lack of physical play could leave him in the "very good" tier in broader formats. The Florida native should settle in around 50-to-55 points with nearly half of that coming on the power play. Read Past Outlooks

Hughes produced a power-play assist in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Wild.
ANALYSIS
Hughes earned the secondary assist on an Alex Chiasson goal in the second period. The 22-year-old Hughes has helpers in three straight contests, and his most recent two assists have come with the man advantage. For the year, the star defenseman is up to five points, 12 shots on net and a plus-1 rating in six contests. He's also averaged a massive 26:00 of ice time per game, including 4:33 on the power play.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2018
Hughes burst onto the scene with a studly 53 points in 68 games in 2019-20. He earned a nomination for the Calder Trophy, but lost out to Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar for Rookie of the Year honors. That's not to say Hughes wasn't worthy -- he ended the campaign tied for fourth among NHL blueliners in points. The future is bright for Hughes, who will almost certainly be an elite defenseman for years to come. He'll continue to feature heavily on the Canucks' power play while also earning more minutes overall in 2020-21. The 21-year-old isn't likely to add much physically, but the high-tier point production is enough to make him a top-10 fantasy defenseman, anyway.
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.
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.
