Hughes is a big, mobile, stay at home defenseman. He's definitely not much of a factor offensively, and he'll have to improve his first pass out of the zone to reach the NHL level, but he has potential. He's physical when he needs to be and is a smart positional defender. He's a good shot blocker and was a real leader for the Knights this year (wore a letter).

I'm a tad surprised that he got a contract, but I don't think it's a useless signing. He has the potential to develop into a solid bottom pairing guy if he can improve his puck skills to the point where he's able to handle a forecheck at the next level. Defensively, I'm not too worried about him.
