Jack Hughes is on the board, scores first NHL goal for Devils against brother Quinn Hughes
Jack Hughes already shoved one milestone aside in his NHL career.
Hughes, the much-hyped No. 1 overall pick in last summer's NHL draft, scored his first career goal on Saturday and it was made all that much sweeter by scoring it against his brother Quinn and the Vancouver Canucks.
At 14:08 in the first period with the Devils on the power play, Hall slid Hughes a cross-ice feed and Hughes let it rip, beating Vancvouer goalie Thatcher Demko to put New Jersey up 1-0.
The goal came just two nights after recording his first NHL point against the New York Rangers and Kaapo Kakko, the first player selected at the draft after Hughes was taken off the board.
After the game, general manager Ray Shero joked with Hughes in the locker room, asking him, "You got your first NHL what?"
Hughes entered training camp with monstrous expectations, and he certainly impressed by making the team with three preseason goals. He is the first player to ever jump straight from the United States National Team Development Program to the NHL.
