The New Jersey Devils have signed Luke Hughes, the brother of star center Jack Hughes, to a three-year contract. The deal will start this season and this will allow Luke to become a free agent in one year. General Manager Tom Fitzgerald announced it on Saturday. Financial details about the signing were not revealed.

Luke Hughes was chosen fourth in the 2021 NHL draft and has been given the number 43 jersey. However, his coach from New Jersey Devils said he won’t be playing in a game against Boston Bruins this Saturday. He’s 19 years old and last season he acted as assistant captain for Wolverines with 9 goals and 33 assists. His great performance makes him the second highest scorer in NCAA defensemen for this season.

Jack Hughes is 21-years-old and he was chosen as the very first pick in the 2019 NHL draft. He has been scoring a lot of points for his team, the Devils, and he was an All-Star for two years in a row!

Luke’s oldest brother, Quinn, was chosen by the Vancouver team in the 2018 NHL draft and he was given the seventh spot. Luke and Jack are now going to be part of a special group; they will be the third set of brothers to play for the same team at once! This has happened twice before; two brothers Patrik and Peter Sundstrom competed for New Jersey in 1989-90, and Bob and Paul Miller represented Colorado in 1981-82. That was also the last season that Rockies played in Denver before being sent away to become the Devils!
