WORLDS: Hughes breaks out in final game of tournament

"He was a superstar tonight" -- USA head coach Jeff Blashill

by Julie Robenhymer / Special to newjerseydevils.com

BRATISLAVA, SLOVAKIA -- Amidst questions about whether he was strong enough to play against men and if he could have the same kind of offensive impact at this level as he's had against his peers, Jack Hughes came to the 2019 IIHF World Championship with two goals in mind: learning everything he could about what it takes to play against pros and winning a gold medal for USA Hockey. 

After USA's 4-3 loss to Russia in the quarterfinal, the gold medal is off the table, but after being a healthy scratch against Canada to close out the preliminary round, the projected first overall selection of the upcoming NHL Draft put together his best game of the tournament, earned two assists and was named Team USA's player of the game.

Hughes showed that when it comes to his potential, he's just scratching the surface.

Devils Director of Amateur Scouting Paul Castron puts the process together when it comes to assessing the draft talent pool. The scouts recently wrapped up their amateur scout meetings but as of right now, the slots one and two remain open.
