Devils officially shut Jack Hughes down for the season

About time!



This just in, the New Jersey Devils have announced that superstar Jack Hughes will miss the rest of the season and will undergo shoulder surgery tomorrow.

Official statement from the team:

The New Jersey Devils provided the following medical update on center Jack Hughes.

In recent conversations with Jack, his family and representatives, the Devils’ athlete care staff, and Devils’ Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jonathan L. Glashow, it was determined that Jack should be held out of game action for the rest of this season and proceed with shoulder surgery.

He will undergo the surgery on April 10, which will be performed by Dr. Peter Millett in Vail, Colorado.

Hughes is expected to make a full recovery to be available for 2024 New Jersey Devils Training Camp.

Hughes missed significant time earlier this season with a shoulder injury and Devils fans have been calling for the team to shut him down for weeks now... possibly months. It's been clear to me that Hughes just hasn't been himself since about January, yet the team continues to drive him into the ground.

Again, Devils fans are NOT happy with today's decision and are calling on management to explain themselves.

I mean... just look at some of these reactions:

The 22 year old former 1st overall pick put up 27 goals and 47 points in 62 games this season.
