The New Jersey Devils could receive some great news in the coming days regarding their star Jack Hughes.
In fact, according to ESPN reporter Emily Kaplan, there’s a “good chance” the 2019 first-round pick will be back on Saturday when his club hosts the New York Rangers.
The Newark team wouldn’t rule out the possibility of the center facing the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday, but it’s actually a weekend showdown that’s been circled on the calendar.
Let’s remind, Hughes has been absent since November 3 due to an upper body injury, after falling on the board in a match against St. Louis Blues. Since being kicked out, the Devils have struggled, going 1-3-0 in four games.
This season, number 86 collected five goals and 15 assists for 20 points in 10 games.
