Hughes also provided some brief updates on the forwards’ status Paul Byron, Jonathan Drouin and Sean Monahan.

Hughes on Byron:

We will always have some gray areas. Paul is in one of those gray areas, as far as whether he’s ready to play at the start of the season or not, but we expect Paul at some point whether it’s the first day or after a week or two, be healthy, to play this season.

Hughes on Monahan and Drouin:

I spoke to Sean. He will be skating with the group on Thursday. He feels good. I think when he first had hip surgery, he was supposed to need six to seven months and he came back in four months, and I think he struggled with that, forcing the recovery and make it an extended recovery. I was very clear with him: “We didn’t negotiate for you to play the first night against Toronto. If it’s a week later, if it’s two weeks later, it doesn’t matter. He feels really good. If it’s not opening night, I feel it will be soon after, and I think the same for Jo.
