Quinn Hughes gives the Canucks hope for the future


  • So, could Hughes secure the Calder Trophy next season?
  • Of course, we’re not only talking about Jack here, but his brother Quinn as well.
  • There is no doubt that Quinn Hughes has the talent to challenge for the Calder next season
  • He is going to have to stay healthy of course and be paired with a steady partner
  • He will also have to receive some prime power play minutes to allow him to inflate his offensive numbers.
  • He could have all the fancy stats in the world, but unless Quinn Hughes puts up the first 50-point season from a Canucks defenceman since Christian Ehrhoff in 2010/11, it’s unlikely he warrants serious consideration.
  • But the small and fast puck moving defenseman has all the assets to dominate at NHL level.
  • Both Quinn and Jack Hughes are fully expected to be at the forefront of the pack –
  • We could be in for a real humdinger of a battle between these two incredible athletes.
  • What could hold Jack Hughes back is the likelihood of him being the New Jersey Devils’ second line center, rather than immediately being inserted onto their top line.
  • With previous top pick Nico Hischier entering his third NHL season, it would seem unlikely that the Devils would throw Jack Hughes into the lion’s den when they have a perfectly capable and highly-talented center ahead of him.
