New Jersey Devils forward Jack Hughes suffered a dislocated shoulder Tuesday versus the Seattle Kraken but doesn't require surgery, the team announced Thursday.

Hughes will be re-evaluated next week to determine a more definitive timeline for his return. The Devils placed the 20-year-old on injured reserve.

The injury occurred during the first period when Kraken defenseman Jeremy Lauzon hit Hughes along the boards in the corner. Hughes landed hard and immediately left the ice.

Hughes, the first overall pick in 2019, has notched three points in two games this season.
