Hughes has been limited to just two games this season and has been sidelined for the past six weeks. He returns to a New Jersey team that is currently 9-6-4 and tied with the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference with 22 points.
The 20-year-old center posted a pair of goals -- including the overtime game-winner -- during New Jersey's season-opening win against the Chicago Blackhawks.
After scoring seven goals and adding 14 assists in 61 games as a rookie during the 2019-2020 season, Hughes tied for the team-high with 56 games played a year ago, while placing second in points (31), third in assists (20) and third in goals (11).
The Devils and San Jose Sharks are scheduled to play at 7:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
