Lane Hutson is already being compared to one of the best offensive defensemen in the NHL

During his appearance on BPM Sports radio on Tuesday afternoon, Normand Flynn made a significant statement about the Canadiens' prospect Lane Hutson. Indeed, he compared the 19-year-old to one of the best offensive defensemen in the NHL, Quinn Hughes.

He reminds me a lot of the Vancouver Canucks defenseman, Quinn Hughes. He's going to need a big defenseman by his side, but he's going to be good in the National League, I'm convinced. He has great skills, and he sees the ice very well


The Canucks' defenseman had an exceptional season this year, collecting 76 points in 78 games, ranking second among the top-scoring defensemen in the NHL. Furthermore, since joining Vancouver, Hughes has amassed an impressive total of 241 points in 276 NHL games.


On the other hand, Lane Hutson has greatly impressed Canadiens fans in his rookie year in the NCAA, and he continues to dazzle with the American team at the ongoing World Championship. The Canadiens' prospect has accumulated two goals and three assists in six games, likely scoring the most beautiful goal of the tournament so far.

One thing is certain, if Lane Hutson manages to become a defenseman similar to Quinn Hughes, the Canadiens will have made a real steal by selecting him 62nd overall in the last draft.


Do you believe he will be able to establish himself as one of the best offensive defensemen in the NHL in the coming years?
