1. Luke Hughes
The New Jersey Devils have signed Luke Hughes to his entry-level contract.
Luke Hughes gets to join a team ready to make a push in the playoffs as the New Jersey Devils have been one of the best teams in the league all season long.
He also gets to be on a team with his older brother and Devils leading scorer Jack Hughes. The elder Hughes is one of the best players in the NHL already as he is knocking on the door of reaching 100 points. We’ll see how having Luke on the bench helps his legs keep going.
Luke Hughes is going to at least get in one of the two final games that New Jersey has as they take on the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday and the Washington Capitals to end their season on Thursday. It should be an exciting time as he prepares to make his NHL debut.
Hughes’s season came to an end with Michigan at the hands of Quinnipiac in the semi-finals, and he signed with the Devils two days later. It is going to be exciting to see what becomes of his NHL career on the same team as his brother.
