New Jersey Devils star Jack Hughes will miss the remainder of the season after he suffered a low-grade MCL sprain to his left knee, the team announced Tuesday.

Hughes sustained the injury during Sunday’s game against the New York Islanders.

The first overall pick from the 2019 NHL Draft established himself among the league’s best players this season. He scored 26 goals and added 30 assists despite being limited to 49 contests.

Hughes, 20, ranks first on the Devils in goals and second in points. The club is slated to miss the playoffs for the fourth straight year.
