AWWW YEAH! Totally unexpected though since the Devils won the #1 pick in 2017 ultimately selecting the #2 rated draft pick Nico Hischier as he was a better fit for the team. From what I understand Jack Hughes is friendly with Taylor Hall. Guess we'll find out in June whether the Devils draft Hughes or Kakko.And NJ scores the 1st lottery pick... Wings are 6th. I wonder if Jack Hughes will enjoy NJ...
The very big upside is that it will be easier to resign Taylor Hall at the end of next season.
