PLYMOUTH Adidas Josh Jooris Jersey , Mich. (AP) — Jack Hughes draws a crowd.Detroit general manager Ken Holland and former Red Wing star Steve Yzerman chatted during the first intermission of one of Hughes’ recent games. Scouts from the NHL were scattered throughout USA Hockey Arena that night, taking notes for teams paying them to evaluate the world’s best hockey players.Hughes, a 17-year-old center , will likely be the top pick in the NHL draft in June.USA Hockey has developed the nation’s top players for more than two-plus decades and four of them have been selected No. 1 overall — including Auston Matthews and Patrick Kane — from its National Team Development Program. Hughes is expected to be next.“He’s as good as I’ve seen come through here in terms of talent, work ethic and being the complete package on and off the ice,” said senior director of operations Scott Monaghan, who has been with the program since its inception in 1996. “He’s more like Patrick because of his skating and shiftiness than Auston, who was really big and strong.“We have 30 to 40 scouts at most of our home games and as many as 60 because Jack is on a team with as many as six, seven or eight first-round picks.”Hughes chose to surround himself with the best American hockey players his age as an amateur instead of getting paid as the No. 1 pick in the Ontario Hockey League. He also could have graduated high school a year early to play with his brother, Quinn, a freshman at Michigan and a defenseman drafted No. 7 overall last summer by the Vancouver Canucks.“I feel like it’s the best place to be for a 16-year, 17-year-old,” Hughes told The Associated Press. “No one trains as hard as us. We skate every day. We lift three days a week. We play a great schedule. I think it’s the best place to be to groom yourself to be an NHL player someday.”Hughes was born in Orlando Adidas Timothy Liljegren Jersey , Florida, where his father, Jim, was assistant coach for the Solar Bears in the International Hockey League. He wasn’t there long. Jim Hughes moved his family a few months later to Boston because he got a job as an assistant with the Bruins. Two years later, the former Providence defenseman went to New Hampshire — where he, his wife and three boys vacation each summer — to be an assistant and later head coach with the Manchester Monarchs in the American Hockey League.Jim Hughes’ next job appears to have been pivotal in the development of his sons’ hockey careers because it landed him in Toronto as an assistant with the AHL’s Marlies. He later became director of player development for the Maple Leafs.“I always played him a year up and that’s not easy to do in the hockey mecca of the world,” Jim Hughes said. “Even when he was 5, you could see he had a special skill set. As he got older, coaches were yelling at their players to hit him and teams were trying to attack him. And quite frankly, he was still dominant.”While Jim Hughes was often busy with his job when the boys were growing up, Ellen Hughes taught her sons how to skate. She drew on her experience from playing for the U.S. women’s national hockey team and at New Hampshire, where she was also on the soccer team.“When Jack would go outside to play, older boys would always pick him even though he was at least two years younger than the rest of them and he always wanted the puck Adidas Tyler Ennis Jersey ,” Ellen Hughes recalled. “We never had to push him. It was always organic and Toronto was just the best place for him to prepare him for what he’s doing now.”Jack Hughes starts his day at 6:15 a.m. with two eggs on a bagel with cream cheese and salami along with some fresh fruit, orange juice and a vitamin. He has to arrive at school shortly after 7 a.m. and if he’s tardy or misses a class, USA Hockey has a staff member who knows it and there are consequences.“There’s no sleeping in,” Jack Hughes said. “They’ll sit you for a period if you’re late or skip a class, or if you’re late for the bus.”Hughes, who plans to graduate this month, takes four classes before heading to USA Hockey Arena in suburban Detroit to drill on a shooting pad, lift weights and go through an intense, two-hour practice before going to study table. His favorite meal is his father’s grilled steak. Shortly after dinner, his parents don’t have a hard time getting him to go sleep.“If you don’t go to bed early, this place will eat you alive,” Jim Hughes said.The 5-foot-10, 168-pound Hughes feasts on the competition wherever he goes Adidas Antoine Roussel Jersey , playing U.S.-based colleges against players much older and bigger than him, as well as in the United States Hockey League and international competition.With 16 points in just four games, he was tournament MVP at the under-18 Five Nations tournament in the Czech Republic last month. He had 116 points in 60 games last year and he is averaging about two points a game this season, putting him on pace to set the NTDP career record for points. Hughes skates effortlessly in any direction and has soft hands, allowing him to dangle to puck to set up a shot for a teammate or himself.“Jack Hughes is the leading candidate to be the No. 1 pick at this point and scouts are out evaluating him as often as possible,” Holland said. “He’s an incredibly talented player, who is destined to have a fabulous NHL career.” TAMPA, Fla. — After finding their offensive game, the Tampa Bay Lightning want to make sure their defensive game is on point when they host the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.After scoring twice in the opening two games of the season, Tampa Bay erupted for eight goals against Columbus the last time out, getting points from 13 different players and goals from seven different scorers. Tampa Bay scored half those goals with the man advantage after going 0-for-8 to start the season.It was the type of result the Lightning needed after fielding days’ worth of questions about a slow start and lack of production.Article continues below ...“Everyone wants to score a goal and we all want to contribute offensively and I think it was good for everybody to have a game like this,” Tampa Bay forward Yanni Gourde said. “I think our power play was much better. We directed pucks at the net and we created rebounds, and that’s how we scored goals and that what we have to do more of.”The Lightning defense has been up to the task to this point Adidas Tim Schaller Jersey , allowing just five goals (not counting empty net goals) through three games and is a perfect 13-for-13 on the penalty kill. Goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy has been a big part of that success with a 1.64 goals-against average and .950 save percentage to start the season.It’s a point of emphasis for head coach Jon Cooper.“Whether you get one or you get eight, goals win the game,” Cooper said after Saturday’s victory. “The part I liked about it is we just gave up two, and usually when that happens you’re in good shape.”The defense will be tested by the Hurricanes, one of the surprises to start that the season with four wins in six games.Carolina has scored five or more goals three times on the young season and have fired no fewer than 33 shots on goal. In the past two games, the Hurricanes have combined for 100 shots on goal.The offense is led by Sebastian Aho, who is the seventh player in Carolina franchise history to start the season with points in six consecutive games and was named the third star of the week by the NHL.The Hurricanes went in to Winnipeg on Sunday and matched the Jets, a Stanley Cup favorite entering the season, for most of the game before falling after a late goal against.“Everyone says (Winnipeg’s) a team that’s up for the Stanley Cup. They’ve proven it,” new Carolina head coach Rod Brind’Amour told NHL.com. “They were one of the best teams in the league (last season). I didn’t feel like we were (outmatched). It felt like we were hanging in there with them and probably had some opportunities to win the game. Overall, I’m happy with the effort for sure.”
