ESPN Fantasy Projection: Hughes cost fantasy managers a pretty penny in drafts a season ago, but the young rearguard proved to be well worth it, posting a career-high 68 points (60 assists) in 76 games. Hughes finished tied for sixth in defensemen scoring with Pittsburgh's Kris Letang and Toronto's Morgan Rielly. Hughes's greatest attribute is his power-play production. He didn't score a single goal with the man advantage last season, but his 31 helpers more than made up for it. Hughes offers little to nothing in terms of hits and blocks, so it's imperative he continues to pile up the points.
