The Devils today announced that they have signed 2019’s first overall pick, Jack Hughes, to a three-year entry level contact (ELC). The three years is the maximum an ELC can be signed for.
The contract has an annual average value of $925,000 plus performance bonuses according to the press release put out by the Devils.
Hughes is currently participating in Devils rookie camp that will continue with the Red and White Scrimmage tomorrow. This is open to the public and I will be there. I will try to get a post up soon after on the event.
Hughes will now get ready for training camp come September as he will almost definitely be on the opening night roster come October.
The Jack Hughes Era has officially begun in New Jersey and it should be a great ride!
