This one should be obvious, but the fourth overall pick in the 2021 draft and younger brother of Jack Hughes is having another terrific season for the Michigan Wolverines in the NCAA. As of this writing, he has eight goals and 30 points in 27 games after a four-goal outing the weekend of Jan. 27 against Penn State. The sophomore defender has a chance to make a run with the Wolverines once the NCAA tournament begins at the end of March, as they boast plenty of talent besides him.
