Quinn Hughes
19-Year-Old DefensemanD
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Set to return to the University of Michigan for the 2018-19 season, Hughes will have value mainly in dynasty leagues and perhaps late in the season if the Canucks decide he's ready for the NHL right out of college. The 18-year-old defenseman dazzled at the World Junior Showcase, including a brilliant helper in overtime against Sweden. While slightly undersized at 5-foot-9, the slick skater makes up for it with his speed and stickhandling ability. While he may not have a huge role in the NHL this season, it shouldn't be too long before Hughes is a staple on the back end for the Canucks. Read Past Outlooks
Has options for next step

Hughes has a few options to explore when his NCAA season concludes, Ryan Biech of the Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The most likely scenario is that Hughes will join the Canucks, but he could go to the AHL or even wait until the summer to decide. Much of this depends on how far Michigan advances, as his season could be over as early as March 9. There is also the Seattle expansion draft to consider, as Hughes would currently be exempt, but could become eligible should he play 11 NHL games. Playoff games count toward this total, and the Canucks are in the playoff race, and could use Hughes to secure a playoff berth. This could affect his usage when the time comes.
