I’ve been a Boston Bruins fan since 2011 but this year, I’m also a fan of the New Jersey Devils, mainly because of Jack Hughes. Hughes was the number one first-round draft pick in 2019 and has lived up to the hype as one of the team’s top scorers. This season, he signed an eight-year contract extension with the Devils worth $64 million. Unfortunately, Hughes is out for the short remainder of the 2021-2022 season.
Fighting in hockey is nothing new, but the Devils game on April 3 brought about a fight that made me realize something about Jack Hughes.
