Maple Leafs' Michael Hutchinson: Returning to Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson signed a two-year, two-way contract with Toronto on Friday.

Hutchinson rejoins the Leafs after having been shipped to Colorado in a deadline deal back in February. The netminder was called into action for the Avs during the postseason due to injuries and posted a 2-1-0 record and a 2.75 GAA in four outings. With Frederik Andersen and Jack Campbell already set to make the Leafs' 23-man roster, Hutchinson will no doubt start next season with AHL Toronto where he will likely split time with Aaron Dell, assuming Dell clears waivers whenever he is moved down.

Avalanche's Michael Hutchinson: Falls in overtime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson allowed five goals on 35 shots in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to Dallas in Game 7.

Hutchinson, making his third straight start in place of the injured Pavel Francouz (undisclosed), was done in by a Joel Kiviranta hat trick and a pair of Alexander Radulov power-play goals. The 30-year-old Hutchinson struggled in a backup role with Toronto during the regular season before being acquired by the Avalanche at the trade deadline. He made one regular-season start and four playoff appearances for Colorado.

Avalanche's Michael Hutchinson: In goal for Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson will get the starting nod for Friday's Game 7 against the Stars, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

In two starts and one relief appearance since taking over for the injured Pavel Francouz (undisclosed), Hutchinson has been rock solid, as he has stopped 61 of 65 shots faced (.938 save percentage). Despite not having their first two netminders, the Avs have forced a Game 7 after trailing 3-1 in the series, thanks in large part to the play of Hutchinson. Backed by an offense converting at a 4.00 goals-per-game rate, the Ontario native doesn't have to be perfect, just good enough.

Avalanche's Michael Hutchinson: Evens series with Game 6 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson allowed just one goal on 28 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Stars in Game 6.

Hutchinson has filled in admirably since Pavel Francouz (undisclosed) has been out. In two starts (both wins), Hutchinson has allowed four goals on 62 shots. The 30-year-old would likely get the nod again in Friday's Game 7 if Francouz remains unavailable.

Avalanche's Michael Hutchinson: Set for Game 6 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson will start between the pipes for Wednesday's Game 6 against Dallas, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.

With Pavel Francouz still dealing with an injury issue, Hutchinson will step into the crease for the second straight game. In Monday's Game 5, Hutchinson stopped 31 of 34 shots in a 6-3 win. The 30-year-old will need to be in top form with his team down 3-2 in the series.

Avalanche's Michael Hutchinson: Picks up win Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson stopped 31 of 34 shots in a 6-3 win over the Stars in Game 5.

With Pavel Francouz deemed unfit to play, Hutchinson stepped into the crease and turned in a strong performance in his first career playoff start. He was aided by the Avalanche's five-goal outburst in the first period to give him plenty of cushion. Should Francouz remain out for Wednesday's Game 6, Hutchinson will likely make another start.

Avalanche's Michael Hutchinson: Draws Game 5 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson will guard the crease for Sunday's Game 5 showdown against Dallas, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

With Colorado down 3-1 in the series, the team will make a switch in goal and give Hutchinson a chance. The 30-year-old stopped the only three shots he faced in relief during Game 4, and he also stopped 16 of 17 in his lone regular-season appearance with the Avalanche on March 2.

Avalanche's Michael Hutchinson: Won lone start with Avs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson won his lone appearance with the Avalanche prior to the NHL halting the 2019-20 season.

Overall, Hutchinson is 5-9-1 with a 3.47 GAA and .888 save percentage this season, but a bulk of that was with the Maple Leafs, who are ranked 27th in team GAA Hutchinson yielded just one goal and made 17 saves against the Red Wings in his Avalanche debut March 2.

Avalanche's Michael Hutchinson: Wins in team debut on birthday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson turned aside 17 of 18 shots in a 2-1 win over the Red Wings on Monday.

Hutchinson's Avalanche debut was a relatively uneventful affair. It was his first appearance in nearly a month, as head coach Jared Bednar gave Pavel Francouz rest. Hutchinson improved to 5-9-1 with a 3.47 GAA and an .888 save percentage through 16 contests. The 30-year-old goalie isn't likely to see much time with Francouz playing well, and Hutchinson would likely head to the minors once Philipp Grubauer (lower body) returns.

Avalanche's Michael Hutchinson: Slated for Avalanche debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson was the first goalie off during morning skate, indicating he'll get the road start against Detroit on Monday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

The Avalanche acquired Hutchinson from Toronto at the trade deadline, and he'll finally get to work with Philipp Grubauer (lower body) still on injured reserve. Hutchinson had a rocky season with the Leafs, as he posted an .886 save percentage and 3.66 GAA. The change of scenery could help, but even if it doesn't, a matchup against the putrid Red Wings can make anyone a star.

Avalanche's Michael Hutchinson: Recalled by Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche promoted Hutchinson from AHL Colorado on Monday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

The Avs sent Hunter Miska down in a corresponding move, so Hutchinson will take over as Pavel Francouz's backup for the foreseeable future. The 29-year-old compiled 4-9-1 record while posting a sub-par 3.66 GAA and .886 save percentage in 15 appearances with Toronto before being traded to Colorado prior to Monday's deadline.

Avalanche's Michael Hutchinson: Heads to Mile High City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche acquired Hutchinson from the Maple Leafs for defenseman Calle Rosen on Monday.

Hutchinson was roughed up in Toronto this season, posting an .886 save percentage and 4-9-1 record, and his backup job was eventually taken by Jack Campbell. The 29-year-old netminder will get a fresh start with the Avalanche, and he could bump into the No. 2 role behind Pavel Francouz while Philipp Grubauer (lower body) is on IR.

Maple Leafs' Michael Hutchinson: Lands on waiver wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson was placed on waivers by the Leafs on Thursday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

Considering Hutchinson sports a 4-9-1 record and disastrous 3.66 GAA in his 15 appearances this season, it would be surprising to see a team claim him. With the organization acquiring Jack Campbell from the Kings, Hutchinson likely has seen his last NHL action this season, barring additional injuries to Campbell or Frederik Andersen.

Maple Leafs' Michael Hutchinson: Rough night in New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson gave up four goals on 34 shots in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Rangers.

Hutchinson's first starting assignment in place of the injured Frederik Andersen did not go well. He found himself trailing 3-1 after 20 minutes, although none of those goals were necessarily on Hutchinson. However, he may want Pavel Buchnevich's game-winner back, a wrist shot along the ice from the slot that Hutchinson had a clean look at but could only get a piece of. Toronto acquired Anaheim backup Jack Campbell almost immediately following Wednesday's game, putting Hutchinson's role into question going forward.

Maple Leafs' Michael Hutchinson: Starting in the Big Apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson will patrol the crease during Wednesday's road game against the Rangers, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

Hutchinson was awful in his last appearance Monday against Florida, surrendering three goals on 13 shots in relief of Frederik Andersen. The 29-year-old netminder will attempt to bounce back in a road matchup with a Rangers team that's averaging 3.48 goals per game at home this campaign, sixth in the NHL.

Maple Leafs' Michael Hutchinson: Rough night in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson gave up three goals on 13 shots Monday in a 5-3 loss to Florida.

Hutchinson entered the game to start the second period after starter Frederik Andersen left with an upper-body injury. The Maple Leafs turned a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 lead after Hutchinson came on, but the Panthers flipped the game with four unanswered goals in the third. Keep an eye on this situation as Hutchinson would take over as the starter if Andersen misses any time, although it's conceivable the Leafs could look to add a goaltender if Andersen's injury results in a long-term absence.

Maple Leafs' Michael Hutchinson: Delivers in overtime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson made 24 saves in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over the Senators.

After a horrible start to the season, Hutch has delivered a 4-2 record in his last six decisions. His two losses came in relief. Goaltending has been the Leafs' Achilles heel all season. And while Hutchinson has delivered solid performances of late, there's always a chance the Leafs will find a more reliable backup to spell Frederik Andersen.

Maple Leafs' Michael Hutchinson: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson will guard the goal during Saturday's home game against the Senators, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

Hutchinson has struggled in each of his last two appearances, suffering back-to-back losses to the Oilers and Panthers while posting a disastrous 5.57 GAA and .788 save percentage. The 29-year-old backstop will look to get back on track in a highly favorable home matchup with an Ottawa club that's 6-15-4 on the road this year.

Maple Leafs' Michael Hutchinson: Takes loss in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson gave up four goals on 17 shots in relief of Frederik Andersen in Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Panthers.

Hutchinson was responsible for Frank Vatrano's shorthanded goal at 2:25 of the second period, which would count as the decisive tally. With the loss, Hutchinson dropped to 3-7-1 with a 3.83 GAA and an .885 save percentage in 12 appearances. The 29-year-old is too inconsistent to have on fantasy rosters outside the deepest of formats.

Maple Leafs' Michael Hutchinson: Gives up three in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutchinson replaced Frederik Andersen on Monday and allowed three goals on 13 shots in a 6-4 loss to the Oilers.

Coming off a win, Hutchinson was meant to have the night off but was called into action after Andersen struggled early. The Maple Leafs' backup did not fare much better than their starter, as Toronto spent most of the game chasing Oilers players all around the ice. Considering how much Andersen has played this year, don't expect to see Hutchinson back between the pipes anytime soon.
