Luke Hughes' Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - : "His stride is long and fluid. Hes not as creative as his older brothers but can cause fits in transition. Can make players miss in all three zones."

Dylan Griffing - Dobber Prospects - Feb. 3rd: "He is super creative, an excellent skater, and, must be noted, one of the youngest players in this entire draft class. Hes a fun player, to say the least. I like players who are always attempting to make good things happen, and thats just what Hughes does."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Jan. 23rd: "Hughes is a solid puck mover with good poise who is committed to play at Michigan next season. He has a quick release from the point and has scored 25 points (six goals, 19 assists) in 23 games this season."

Craig Button - TSN - Dec. 15th: "Very good two-way defenceman who will anchor a top pair. Excellent skater who plays with a high-level blend of skill, smarts and physical competitiveness."

Bob McKenzie - TSN - Dec. 15th: "Luke has been measured at 6-foot-2, so that would make him the biggest of the three Hughes boys. And while hes clearly an offense-first defenceman, no one is suggesting hes as dynamic as Quinn. But there is considerable offensive upside there."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Nov. 27th: "Hockey IQ and great skating ability are hallmarks in the family. Luke has that and the added bonus of size (6-foot-2, 176 pounds)."

John Wroblewski - NHL.com - Oct. 8th: "His body composition has taken off without the rigors of travel and games. He's going to be an extremely valuable two-way player. The great thing about Luke is that he won't need to force offense. If he concentrates on shutting people down, the offensive opportunities will be there, and he has a very slick skill set to back it up."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Oct. 8th: "Luke has the Hughes family skating ability, showing exceptional edge work and ability to create offense with his skating. Hes a very skilled puck-mover who can make creative offensive plays."

Ryan Quigley - Broad Street Hockey - Oct. 8th: "The freshly-turned 17-year-old defenseman is already drawing comparisons to his brother Quinn, who was in the running for this years Calder Memorial Trophy. Luke may not be as polished as Quinn at this age, but they do have one thing in common phenomenal skating ability"

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 14th: "His slender build and airy skating ability, a lot like his two famous big brothers before him, only compounds that intrigue. If he comes back looking a little stronger and he can play at both ends a little more consistently than he did last year, hell quickly find his way up my board."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 12th: "He is the biggest of the Hughes brothers as well, already standing 60? at 16 years old. He is also one of the youngest players for the 2021 draft, just six days away from being eligible for the 2022 draft. His game still has a lot of rawness to it but the potential is there."
