Quinn Hughes
21-Year-Old DefensemanD
Vancouver Canucks
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Hughes burst onto the scene with a studly 53 points in 68 games in 2019-20. He earned a nomination for the Calder Trophy, but lost out to Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar for Rookie of the Year honors. That's not to say Hughes wasn't worthy -- he ended the campaign tied for fourth among NHL blueliners in points. The future is bright for Hughes, who will almost certainly be an elite defenseman for years to come. He'll continue to feature heavily on the Canucks' power play while also earning more minutes overall in 2020-21. The 21-year-old isn't likely to add much physically, but the high-tier point production is enough to make him a top-10 fantasy defenseman, anyway. Read Past Outlooks

May 16, 2021
Hughes managed three assists in Sunday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Flames.
ANALYSIS
He set up Travis Hamonic for the Canucks' first goal in the second period. In the third, Hughes helped out on power-play markers by Tyler Graovac and Brock Boeser to help spark a four-goal comeback. Sunday's performance put Hughes at the 40-point mark in 54 contests. He's racked up 96 shots on net, 19 power-play points and a minus-23 rating as a high-scoring, top-four option this year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Hughes got a tiny taste of NHL action at the end of last season after beginning it at the University of Michigan. Billed as a mobile, puck-moving defenseman, the 19-year-old recorded three assists in five games to finish off the 2018-19 campaign, and all signs point to him being part of the Canucks' 2019-20 plans. Assuming he breaks camp with the big club, he'll probably see a good chunk of power-play time. Already a must-own in dynasty formats, Hughes is entering the stage of his NHL career where he now carries serious upside in traditional fantasy formats, so keep him top-of-mind when draft day rolls around as he figures to be a key cog in Vancouver's back end for the foreseeable future.
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.
