Quotebook

"He plays on his team's first line, which is one of the best offensive lines in the league, and he has earned his coach's confidence to play on both special teams units. He has been responsible in his own end, consistently making good breakouts. He protects the puck well down low in the offensive zone; he can really shoot the puck and has the ability to find his teammates through traffic." - Rangers Senior Advisor to the President Mike Barnett on Riley Hughes
