He might be a good player for us some day--I would think the Rangers have taken a very close look at him for a while but whoever wrote that article comparing him to Erskine, Engelland is full of it. He's had two fights in his entire OHL career and didn't do particularly well in either of them. An Erskine or Engelland he ain't. That doesn't mean he isn't physical but both Erskine and Engelland are decent defenders who fight very, very well which allows them to be very mean crease clearers. Hughes doesn't seem to quite fit that job description.
