Devils Forward Named NHL Star of the Week



Devils Forward Named NHL Star of the Week

The New Jersey Devils might be hot and cold, but Jack Hughes is just hot. The NHL announced its three stars of the week for Nov. 27th to Dec. 3rd. The Devils and NHL star received third-star honors. He joins Arizona Coyotes goaltender Connor Ingram (first star) and New York Islanders forward (Mathew Barzal) (second star).

According to the press release, “Hughes paced the NHL with 3-4—7 across three games to propel the Devils (11-10-1, 23 points) to a 2-1-0 week. He registered 1-2—3 in each of his first two contests, picking up 1-1—2 in the third period as New Jersey overcame a two-goal deficit for a 5-4 win against the New York Islanders Nov. 28 and earning the primary assist on his brother Luke’s overtime goal in a 4-3 triumph over the Philadelphia Flyers Nov. 30. It marked the fourth time in his career that Hughes has posted consecutive three-point performances and the second time he has achieved that feat in 2023-24, following a three-game run from Oct. 20-25 (2-9—11 in 3 GP).”

“Hughes added one goal in a 6-3 loss to the San Jose Sharks Dec. 1, becoming the fastest player in franchise history to reach the 30-point milestone in a season. The 22-year-old Hughes, who has 9-21—30 overall (17 GP), tops the League with 1.76 points per game in 2023-24 (minimum: 2 GP).”

The Devils accrued a 1-0-1 record en route to Hughes’ big week. New Jersey’s franchise forward ranks 11th overall in the NHL with 30 points (nine goals, 21 assists) in 17 games. It’s the second time this season Hughes has earned star honors. He was named the first star of October.
