JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

On Cameron Hughes

"As a coach, when you put a guy over the boards, you have that feeling inside you like, 'I'm not sure how this is gonna go.' You have that a lot with some players. Then with some other players, you put them over the boards and you certainly know you can't control things, but you do know that this player is going to have the intention to do all the right things and that's what Hughesy does. Really he's done that since he's been here.

As you said, those two former players (Jordan Swartz & Colby Cave) were very similar, playing significant minutes and very important roles throughout the games. Hughesy does that equally as well. Those guys are the glue guys. They keep everything together. When things go awry, like they always do in a game, they're the first guy you look for. He's been outstanding with that."
