Could Michigan Hockey’s Head Coaching Decision Impact Luke Hughes?

The New Jersey Devils have been closely watching the University of Michigan hockey season because they have Luke Hughes dominating on the blue line (and Ethan Edwards, a former fourth-round pick). There was a lot invested into Michigan hockey, which also had three of the other top-five picks in this year’s NHL Draft on the team. Hughes has been more than anyone of us could have hoped. He was a Hobey Baker Award finalist in his freshman season. That’s a rarity, especially for a defenseman.

New Jersey Devils: Luke Hughes Is On A Tear This Season

Luke Hughes continues to impress during freshman season

As Luke Hughes darted up the ice Saturday against Wisconsin, there was a feeling of inevitability. Throughout the season, the freshman defenseman has been a lightning bolt in transition, shredding through unsettled defenses and getting to the net.

New Jersey Devils Prospect Luke Hughes Doesn’t Make Team USA Olympic Team

The New Jersey Devils thought they were going to be well represented at the Beijing Olympics once the NHL said it agreed to send its players. Nico Hischier would definitely make it with the Swiss, pairing once again with Timo Meier. Tomas Tatar would absolutely make it for Slovakia, as he’s one of the best players to represent that country. Jack Hughes and Dougie Hamilton would have been interesting cases to make U.S.A. and Canada respectively. However, none of those players are allowed on the team anymore.

2022 WJC Team USA Player Profile: Luke Hughes

If you say the name “Hughes” to a modern day hockey fan, fans in the Western Conference will tell you all about Quinn, a member of the Vancouver Canucks, while fans in the Eastern Conference will likely talk about Jack, who plays for the New Jersey Devils. Both brothers are highly skilled with their hands and feet, and both have a knack for creating offense – Quinn from the blue line and Jack from the center position. That bloodline runs a little deeper, though, as the 2021 draft saw Luke join his brother Jack as a member of the Devils after New Jersey made him the fourth overall selection.
