Jack Hughes' Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber ProspectsMay 15th: "Elite skating. Elite edges. Elite puck skills. Vision, creativity, and the spatial awareness to embarrass the opposition on a nightly basis. He’s at his very best with the puck on his stick and surrounded by intelligent mates"

Chris Peters - ESPNMay 6th: "A brilliant playmaker with elite skating ability and hockey sense, Hughes makes everyone around him better."

Hannah Stuart - theScoreMay 1st: "Everything about Hughes' game is designed for the modern NHL. He skates fast and thinks faster. He can make opponents look silly. If someone tells you he's too small or will get outmuscled by NHLers, remind them that the NTDP U18s play against college teams with some players as old as 24."

Dan Marr - Central Scouting Apr. 15th: "Jack is an elite skater who plays the game at top speed both with and without the puck, he sees the ice tremendously well and finds open space to create scoring chances. He has a complete package of skills that suggest he will be a franchise NHL player and game-changer."

Adam Kimelman, Mike G. Morreale and Guillaume Lepage - NHL.com Apr. 10th: "Kimelman: An elite all-around talent who uses skill, speed and vision, rather than size (5-foot-10, 170 pounds), to intimidate.
Morreale: The left-shot center is an elite skater who can think the game at top speed and has a knack for finding open areas on the ice.
Lepage: With his great season and the NTDP records he has broken along the way, no team would dare pass on the opportunity to select a player with so much potential."

Sam Conentino - SportsNetApr. 9th: "At the head of a prestigious class as the most prolific point producer the USNTDP has ever seen."
