  • Devils' Luke Hughes: Strong stretch run in rookie year

    Hughes finished his rookie season with nine goals and 47 points while dressing for all 82 games in 2023-24.

    Hughes showed off his puck-moving skills on the power play, notching 25 points on the man advantage. Similar to his brothers Quinn Hughes and Jack Hughes (shoulder), Luke is highly skilled but undersized. The 184-pound blueliner was bullied in the defensive zone to the tune of a minus-25 rating, but fantasy managers will be willing to overlook those shortcomings from the fourth overall pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, especially if Hughes proves capable of sustaining his point-per-game pace from the last 14 games of 2023-24 over a longer stretch.

  • Devils' Luke Hughes: Contributes assist Sunday

    Hughes notched an assist and added a shot on net in Sunday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Predators.

    Hughes provided the primary assist on the opening goal of the game. He also added one shot on net, two blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-1 rating in 24:43 of ice time. The 22-year-old defenseman extended his point streak to seven games, but he hasn't registered a multi-point game since March 21. With 45 points on the season, Hughes now has the second-most by a rookie defenseman in team history.

  • Devils' Luke Hughes: Posts helper in loss

    Hughes notched an assist, four shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Sabres.

    Hughes has a goal and seven helpers over his last six contests, one of his best runs of the season. The rookie defenseman is up to 41 points, 123 shots on net, 46 blocked shots and a minus-20 rating through 74 contests overall. Hughes continues to offer fantasy upside with a significant power-play role -- his helper Friday was his first at even strength since March 14.

  • Devils' Luke Hughes: Five assists in last two games

    Hughes delivered three power-play assists Thursday in a 4-1 victory over the Jets.

    He played 20:30 on the night and fired six shots. Hughes has five assists, including four with the man advantage, in his last two games. The points move him into a tie with Brock Faber of Minnesota for second in rookie scoring (38) behind Connor Bedard (54). Hughes had seemingly hit a wall earlier on, tallying 10 points, including nine assists, in 30 games prior to this mini-run. That shouldn't be surprising -- the 20-year-old defender is one season removed from an NCAA season where he played 39 games. Hughes has now played 70 this campaign. His talent is undeniable, but his fatigue is real. But if the Devils keep putting him on the power play, Hughes could give you an end-of-season burst.

  • Devils' Luke Hughes: Two-point effort in win

    Hughes notched two assists, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.

    The 20-year-old blueliner had a hand in a Timo Meier tally in the second period and Alexander Holtz's game-winner in the third. Hughes' goal drought stands at 27 games, a stretch in which he's managed 11 assists with a minus-14 rating as he's shown signs of fatigue toward the end of his first full NHL season.

  • Devils' Luke Hughes: Contributes two power-play assists

    Hughes logged a pair of power-play assists and three shots on goal in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Ducks.

    Hughes earned his first multi-point effort since Dec. 29. The 20-year-old defenseman has been a fine fantasy option so far with 31 points (16 on the power play), 91 shots on net, 35 blocked shots and a minus-19 rating through 60 appearances on the year. Hughes continues to see top-four minutes and ample power-play time, so he should be at least somewhat consistent on offense.

  • Devils' Luke Hughes: Pockets helper in win

    Hughes notched an assist and four shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Predators.

    Hughes dropped the puck off to his older brother Jack Hughes, who went end to end for the Devils' first goal. The younger Hughes entered Tuesday on a five-game slump before earning the helper. The 20-year-old defenseman has eight goals, 19 helpers, 76 shots on net, 32 blocked shots and a minus-10 rating through 52 outings overall in his rookie year.

  • Devils' Luke Hughes: Keeps point streak alive

    Hughes provided a power-play assist in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Capitals.

    Hughes stretched his point streak to four games with a man-advantage helper that led to the second goal of the night for captain Nico Hischier. The Devils boast the league's best power-play percentage, converting 30.3 percent of their opportunities, and Hughes is a big reason why they've been so successful. Hughes has seven goals and 15 assists, including 11 points on the power play, through 36 games this season.

  • Devils' Luke Hughes: Making mark in team record book

    Hughes scored a goal in a 5-2 loss to the Bruins on Saturday.

    Hughes is the second rookie defenseman in Devils history to score in three straight games, joining Barry Beck in 1977-78. He has five points (three goals, two assists) in those three games. Hughes leads all rookie defenders with 21 points (seven goals, 14 assists), and he sits fourth overall in scoring among first-year players behind Connor Bedard (32 points), Adam Fantilli (23) and Marco Rossi (22). Perhaps more impressively, Hughes is averaging almost 19:59 of ice time through 35 games. He's making a big impact at just 20 years of age.

  • Devils' Luke Hughes: Has three-point game

    Hughes collected a goal and two assists in a 6-2 victory over Ottawa on Friday.

    Hughes' older brother, Jack Hughes, also recorded a tally and two helpers, which makes it the first time a pair of siblings have each contributed at least three points for the same team in a single game since Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin last accomplished that feat Dec. 15, 2017, per the NHL. It's also the first time the 20-year-old Hughes recorded at least three points in an outing, though it is the fifth multi-point contest of his rookie campaign. His offensive production did stall with a seven-game scoring drought from Dec. 10-23, but he's supplied two goals and two assists over his last two contests and is up to six markers and 20 points in 34 appearances this year.

  • Devils' Luke Hughes: Deposits power-play goal

    Hughes scored a power-play goal in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Canucks.

    Hughes' tally, set up by his older brother Jack Hughes, gave the Devils a 5-2 lead in the second period. Over the last five games, the 20-year-old Hughes has three goals and two assists, with three of those five points coming on the power play. It appears he has the edge for power-play time while Dougie Hamilton (pectoral) is out, but Simon Nemec has already seen substantial defensive assignments in his first two contests. Hughes is up to 15 points (eight on the power play), 36 shots on net, 12 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating through 23 appearances this season.
