Nathan Mullenger-McHugh will don the brown and gold again in 2020.
Mullenger-McHugh joined Box Hill this year after two seasons with the Western Bulldogs.
An impressive all-round athlete, Mullenger-McHugh played 11 games for the Hawks this year and booted eight goals.
GM – VFL and VFLW Football Daniel Napoli said Mullenger-McHugh had been a valuable addition to the club in his first year.
“It was really important to secure Nathan’s services for 2020,” Napoli said.
“He played an important role for us this year as a versatile player who could play either end of the ground as well in the ruck.
“He will once again be a significant piece in our line-up next year.”
