Jack Hughes gunning for the Patrick Elias record of most points for the Devils in a single season

Orlandoan Jack Hughes is chasing the 22-year-old record for most points for New Jersey Devils in a single season set by Patrick Elias in 2000-01. Hughes currently has accumulated 95 points, just a single point shy of Elias’ record.

Jack Hughes stands a chance to break the record tonight as the Bruins faceoff against the Devils. The 2019 first-draft pick requires just two points to break Elias’ record. Moreover, he requires just five to become NJ Devils’ first player to score 100 points.

Day back, Jack Hughes scored and assisted twice against Blue Jackets to surpass three big names in Devils’ history to claim the second spot. He surpassed Taylor Hall (93 points, 2017-18), Kirk Muller (94 points, 1987-88), and Zach Parise (94 points, 2008-09). Jack has also skipped one position in most career points for the Devils and currently sits at 42nd.

The 21-year-old has played 75 games this season for the Devils. He has assisted 53 times and netted 42 times so far. On asked what it means that he’s one point shy of tying the record for most points, Hughes commented, “Umm… Yeah, I want to break that bad boy, So we’re not going to sit on that. Yeah, I want that record”

He later expanded on his vision and motive to break the record. Jack Hughes added, “The better I do, the better the team does. So of course I want that record and I’m going to be here for a lot of years, so. I’d like to break it this year, but who knows? We will see what happens.”

NJ Devils are 2nd in the Metropolitan Division behind the Hurricanes. The Devils are also riding on a milestone quest – The highest Number of Regular Season Wins in one season. The recent additions have been quite good as they have clinched their first Stanley Cup Playoffs in five years.
