The Hughes brothers are taking over the NHL. With Jack Hughes putting himself ahead of the Hart Trophy pack, it's easy to see why this family is becoming NHL royalty. But one Hughes brother who doesn't get enough love is Quinn.

The defenseman leads the best scoring attack in the NHL (136 goals) with 35 assists, making him into a younger version of Erik Karlsson. If Hughes and his crew can continue putting pucks in the net, it'll be tough to stop the Canucks when April hits.
