2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hughes was billed as the top prospect in the 2019 draft for a while, so it was no surprise to see him drafted first overall by the Devils. He needs to fill out a bit at 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds, but defenders can't hit what they can't catch, and Hughes' combination of skating ability, puck skills and vision often allows him to easily get by defensemen. Hughes has often drawn comparisons to star Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane, and Kane-like production could well represent his realistic ceiling after some development. The 18-year-old will likely need some time to adjust to the NHL, but Hughes should make a difference right away, especially if he can beat out Nico Hischier for the first-line center job alongside Taylor Hall.

Struggles as a rookie
CNew Jersey Devils
July 7, 2020
Hughes finished the 2019-20 campaign with just seven goals, 21 points and an ugly minus-26 rating in 61 games.
ANALYSIS
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.
