Jack Hughes' Player Profile

Craig Button TSN - Aug. 14th: "Outstanding skill with a fantastic imagination, a determined spirit and an electrifying presence."

Ben Kerr - Last Word on Hockey - July 19th: "Hughes has a complete offensive game. He is an elite-level skater, with outstanding speed, excellent acceleration, and top-notch agility and edge work. Hughes also has the soft and quick hands to handle the puck and make quick moves while skating at that top speed."

Steve Kournianos (@TheDraftAnalyst) - Sporting News - June 29th: "Explosive center with world-class vision and the lateral quickness of a running back. Hughes was the top scorer at the under-18 world championship despite playing against mostly older players ... The comparisons to Connor McDavid are a bit premature, but there are multiple similarities between the two."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - June 24th: "There's a phrase in hockey used to describe some elite players as 'someone who makes other players around him better' and it's a phrase that is reserved for the truly elite and Jack Hughes has earned that level of recognition already as a 17-year-old," said Dan Marr, Director of NHL Central Scouting. "Jack was promoted to the NTDP under-18 team where he made an immediate impact while excelling in scoring and, more importantly, his presence elevated the play of most others on his team. It has been very impressive watching him perform."
