New Jersey Devils Get Big Jack Hughes News

The New Jersey Devils should be getting a big boost shortly, as there's a "strong chance" that Jack Hughes will be back in the lineup for the club's contest against the New York Rangers on Saturday (Nov. 18). However, he also is not being ruled out for their Thursday (Nov. 16) game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, either. 

Hughes last played on Nov. 3 against the St. Louis Blues and has been out with a shoulder injury. However, it appears that the star is inching closer to get back on the ice, and this is huge news for a Devils team needing a boost. 

Hughes was off to an outstanding start before getting injured, posting five goals and 20 points in 10 games. He will now hope to keep this kind of play up once he returns for the Devils. If he does, we should expect New Jersey to start picking up more wins again.
