Betting Trends

  • Hughes has had an assist in 6 of his 12 playoff games so far.

Under the Radar

Quinn Hughes has been quiet in the previous two games, not having a single assist or goal. In fact, Hughes has yet to score a goal in this season’s playoffs.

Having ended the season as one of the best playmakers in the league, Hughes is currently tied with his teammate J.T Miller for 9 assists thus far into the playoffs, which is ranked as the 6th best throughout the playoffs.

We love a bounce-back spot and this is a prime game for one as Hughes has failed to score an assist now for two games. Only once this post-season has Hughes gone two games without an assist and he followed that up with an assist for three games in a row having had 1/2/1 assists in each game.

NHL Pick

Let’s look to lay the juice on one of the league’s best two-way defencemen to get back on the scoreboard in tonight’s matchup. We like the -125 NHL odds available on Hughes to have at least one assist tonight.

42 of Hughes’ 75 assists during the regular season came on home ice.
