New Jersey Devils center Jack Hughes (upper body) will return to the lineup for Thursday's home game versus the Calgary Flames. The young pivot has missed the past 11 games after suffering an upper-body injury in a 5-3 win against the Colorado Avalanche on Jan. 5. He has been skating with the team in recent days but was not cleared for game action until Thursday. "Yeah, excited. Ready to get back out there," Hughes said following the Devils' morning skate on Thursday. The former No. 1 overall pick broke out with 43 goals and 99 points across 78 games last season and has 15 goals and 45 points across 32 games this time around. The Devils need wins, as they currently sit at 25-20-3 and five points back of the Red Wings for the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.
New Jersey Devils center Jack Hughes (upper body) could return to the lineup at some point this week. The young pivot has been out since sustaining an upper-body injury against the Chicago Blackhawks on Jan. 5, but he practiced in a non-contact jersey on Monday and skated briefly in a regular jersey in Tuesday's morning skate. Head coach Lindy Ruff said Hughes will be re-evaluated on Wednesday to see where he is at ahead of the club's game on Thursday versus the Calgary Flames. After breaking out with 43 goals and 99 points last season, the 22-year-old has tallied 15 goals and 45 points across 32 games this season. The Devils are currently sixth in the Metropolitan Division with a 24-20-3 record and are seven points back of the Detroit Red Wings for the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, albeit with three games in hand.
New Jersey Devils forward Jack Hughes (upper body) was placed on IR Thursday retroactive to January 5. Hughes has missed eight games with an upper-body ailment and isn't expected to return before the all-star break. How long he is out after is anyone's guess, but because he was retroactively placed on IR he is eligible to come off of it at any time. For the season, the 22-year-old has 45 points (15 goals, 30 assists) in 32 games. Hughes' return is vital for both the Devils and fantasy managers, as the team has gone 3-5 without him and fantasy managers have missed his production.
New Jersey Devils forward Jack Hughes (upper body) won't return to action until after the All-Star break. The Devils star has been out for seven games and will miss at least three more contests, starting with Monday's matchup against Vegas. New Jersey returns to action after the break on Feb. 6 against Colorado. Michael McLeod has settled into a top-six center role without Hughes, who's had another outstanding year in 2023-24 with 45 points (15 goals, 30 assists) in 32 games.
