Video- Jack Hughes With Two Goals In His First Preseason Game

from Chris Ryan of NJ.com,

Let’s start with the obvious caveat: Monday was just a preseason game, played against a Boston Bruins roster that lacked any serious NHL talent.

But, man, Jack Hughes delivered a performance to back up the months of hype leading up to his debut.

Playing in his first actual game inside an NHL arena against pro competition, Hughes didn’t disappoint. The No. 1 overall pick of the 2019 NHL Draft scored two goals, including the overtime winner to propel the Devils to a 4-3 victory over the Bruins at Prudential Center.

His second-period power-play goal from the right circle was the Devils’ first of the night, and after more than 30 minutes of feeling out the game and the pace, Hughes converted a shot that helped him feel right at home on the ice.

“I think on that first goal, that’s where I kind of got more comfortable,” Hughes said. “Wanted the puck on my stick more, so that was kind of the turning point.”


Watch the two goals from Hughes below.
