Observations

June 2018 – The Ranger’s selected one of the youngest players available in the 2018 Entry draft, in Riley Hughes. The 6’1” right-winger has an NHL capable frame with a questionable offensive trajectory after playing most of his draft year campaign in the USHS-Prep league. He’ll attend Northeastern University this fall where he’ll look to fill the void left by several graduating all-stars including 2018 Hobey Baker winner Adam Gaudette, and Dylan Sikura.
