Read: Tommy Hughes Is A Solid Defenseman

At OHL Prospects, Brock looks at Rangers prospect Tommy Hughes.

Hughes, an overage defenseman, was signed by the Rangers in the spring after spending four season with the London Knights.

Brock writes that there isn’t much offense to Hughes’ game, but that he doesn’t turn the puck over and can handle it if needed.

Defensively though, Hughes is a big defenseman who skates well and has “top-notch” positioning. He is rarely beaten one-on-one and has high character.

Brock says that the upside with Hughes isn’t very high (3rd pair/PKer) and that he will likely be a minor leaguer for a couple of seasons before getting his chance with the Rangers.
