New Jersey Devils phenom Jack Hughes is day-to-day after suffering an injury on Tuesday against the Seattle Kraken, head coach Lindy Ruff said postgame, according to The Athletic's Corey Masisak.

Ruff added that Hughes will be further evaluated on Wednesday.

Hughes was rubbed out along the boards by Jeremy Lauzon late in the opening frame. The 2019 No. 1 overall pick was favoring his upper body as he left the ice and didn't return.

Hughes scored two goals in the Devils' opener on Friday and already recorded an assist during Tuesday's first period. He finished second on the team with 31 points in 56 games a year ago.
