Got to see Jack Hughes and the rest of the USNTDP U18 team play the Lincoln Stars tonight. Amazingly enough, Team USA absolutely STOMPED the Stars, who have already pulled the plug on their season, but somehow Lincoln managed to tie it up at 5 and then win in the shootout. Wife convinced me to leave while they were two down with less than three to go, so I missed the comeback. :fffffuck: :fffffuck: :fffffuck:

Well, Jack Hughes was, no surprise, far and away the best player on the ice tonight. It wasn't even close. Even when he was just cruising around at half-speed he looked faster than everyone else, and when he turned it up a few notches to get separation, he was gone. I can see why some are comparing him to Patrick Kane, he plays a very similar game. He doesn't have a rifle of a shot but still ended up with 2 goals and an assist on the night.

An impressive array of talent. Apart from Hughes, there was Alex Turcotte, Trevor Zegras, Matthew Boldy, and Cole Caufield, at least a couple of whom could also follow join Hughes in the first round of the draft. Another possible 1st rounder, goalie Spencer Knight, didn't play. Caufield was probably the most impressive beyond Hughes.

Going back to see the same teams square off tomorrow night, but this time the wife opted out of the festivities.
