Jack Hughes has opted for familiar surroundings.

The projected top pick in the 2019 NHL Draft will remain with the U.S. National Team Development Program next season, turning down opportunities with the University of Michigan as well as the OHL's Mississauga Steelheads, who held his Canadian junior rights.

"I just felt like the NTDP was the best spot for my development," Hughes told Mike Morreale of NHL.com. "I love my teammates, my coaches, the resources, and love being able to put on the USA jersey. I tell everyone no one trains as hard as us at the NTDP. We're working out in season, skating four times a week, and playing games on top of that."

  Renzo Gracie says despite being 51, upcoming match with Yuki Kondo is not his retirement fight You would never guess Renzo Gracie’s age just by looking at him. He’s scheduled to compete against Yuki Kondo at ONE: Reign of Kings in the 20,000-seat Mall of Asia Arena in the Philippines in a fight that has been billed as his retirement bout, but Gracie told MMA Fighting during a recent interview that last part is incorrect.

Pro and college hockey scouts are penciling in Hughes , a center, as the odds-on favorite for the top spot in the 2019 N.H.L. draft. The question of who will be the next one may already have an answer: a skinny 16-year-old named Jack Hughes .

In passing on Michigan, Hughes turned down a shot to suit up alongside his brother Quinn, the seventh overall pick by the Vancouver Canucks in this summer's draft. On Saturday, Quinn committed to returning to the Wolverines next season.

"I knew the NTDP was a great spot, and Michigan was a great spot as well," Jack added. "Quinn had really good success there and any time I have a chance to play with Quinn it's really appealing. I took that into consideration, but I think the NTDP was the best spot."

Expect to hear Jack's name plenty next season, particularly from fans of teams near the bottom of the standings. Across 60 games with the NTDP, the Orlando product amassed 116 points, one shy of the high-water mark Auston Matthews paced in 2015. The only difference is that Hughes did it at age 16, one year earlier than the Toronto Maple Leafs center.
