Quinton Hughes's Player Profile

David Gregory - NHL Central Scouting:"Quintin is a smooth-skating, mobile defenseman who carries the puck very well and can transition from defense to offense with his feet or by making a pass. He reads the play very well and uses good positioning and the use of his angles to defend. Projects to be a top-four defenseman in today's game because his skating and puck skills."

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - April 30: "His ability to control the game far exceeds any questions about his size (5-9, 170). He's a dazzling skater and puck-handler with a hard, accurate shot from the point."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - April 30: "A prototypical offensive-defenseman, Hughes is a strong skater with good poise and puck skills. He can play at any pace and rarely is overpowered by bigger players. He's also started to understand how to be more effective in all three zones."

Craig Button - TSN - April 28: "Smooth skating defenceman has the calm, poise and mind to be a well-rounded contributor and play significant minutes."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - April 28: "There’s no denying his play with the puck. He has power play QB potential because of elite puck poise and puck-moving abilities."

Steve Kournianos - SportingNews/The Draft Analys - April 28: "Hughes had an outstanding season as a freshman for Michigan and was a key cog in the Wolverines' march to the Frozen Four. He's quick, nimble and passes the puck with authority, and his size (5-10, 170) doesn't prevent him from out-muscling bigger forwards in the corners."

Cam Robinson - DobberProspects - April 26: "A consummate playmaker who boasts the elite speed needed to thrive at his stature. The youngest player in the NCAA this season, his confidence has been building all year. The best skater in this class and a one-man breakout machine."
