U.S. star Jack Hughes to miss 2nd straight world junior start
Forward won't suit up Saturday night vs. Sweden due to undisclosed injury
The United States' world junior hockey team will be without star forward Jack Hughes for its Saturday night game against Sweden.
Hastings did not discuss the nature of the injury, but said Hughes is progressing.
"He's getting better every day," Hastings said. "He's progressing every day and we're trying to make sure we're going to have him as healthy as he can be when we need him to be. Today's not that day."
The U.S. and Sweden both top Group B with six points through their first two games.
