Devils center Jack Hughes will be the youngest player at this year’s NHL All-Star Weekend in Las Vegas.

Hughes, 20, was named an All-Star on Thursday night, along with his older brother, Quinn, who will be representing the Vancouver Canucks.

The first overall pick in the 2019 draft, Hughes has played in just 19 games this season due to injury, but he’s been a point-per-game player, recording 20 points (nine goals, 11 assists) in his first season since signing an eight-year, $64 million deal that kicks in next season.

Over the course of his three seasons with the Devils, Hughes has tallied 72 points in 136 games, scoring a career-best 11 goals last season.

Meanwhile, fellow forward Jesper Bratt also has a chance to make this year’s All-Star Game as a nominee for the “Last Men In.” Fans can vote for Bratt, who has 32 points this season, now through Jan. 17.
