Meghan Markle eyeballing the red-hot Quinn Hughes!

The perks of being the NHL's leading scorer.



It's rather telling what a difference that a year can make, as the Vancouver Canucks are absolutely rolling right now with a 13-5-1 record and are currently ranked second overall in the division; meanwhile, their rival Edmonton Oilers are in the division basement. 

During Monday night's game at Rogers Place against the visiting San Jose Sharks, Canucks captain Quinn Hughes became the National Hockey League's leading scorer by registering his 29th and 30th points of the season. And in attendance for the event were literal British royalty in Prince Harry, the younger son of King Charles III and Diana, Princess of Wales accompanied by his wife, former Hollywood actress Meghan Markle. 

And Hughes' play was so impressive, the Duchess of Sussex reportedly put in a special request to try and meet the defenseman:

"According to a source close to the couple, Meghan was 'very' impressed by #Canucks Captain Quinn Hughes' skills and charisma on the ice last night, and even asked Harry to introduce her to the 24-year-old defenseman after the game.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a surprise appearance at the Vancouver Canucks game on Monday night, but it seems that the Duchess of Sussex had more than just hockey on her mind.

The source added that Harry did not seem to mind Meghan's interest in Hughes, and that he was happy to see her enjoy the game and be happy for once.

The couple plans on attending more games in the near future."
