New Jersey Devils Jack Hughes

New Jersey Devils forward Jack Hughes and his club is looking for 10 straight wins as they face the Montreal Canadiens on Monday, and he wasn’t having any of the media critiquing the club.

When asked about the Devils finding more consistency through 60 minutes of play, Hughes had a confused look and gave a blunt answer.

“I mean, we’re on a nine-game heater, I’d say we’re doing okay,” he said with a small laugh.
