Hutton (upper body) won't join Buffalo for its two-game road trip versus the Capitals, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.
In three appearances this season, Hutton is sporting a 1-2-0 record with a 2.66 GAA and .899 save percentage. With the 35-year-old tender sidelined, the team will likely utilize Linus Ullmark in both Friday and Sunday's matches with Washington, though Jonas Johansson could be an option as well. Once back to 100 percent, Hutton should challenge for a share of the starts, possibly even a 50/50 split.
Hutton did not return for the third period of Tuesday's game in Philadelphia following a collision in the second period.
Hutton actually finished the frame, but it was Jonas Johansson who took over when the teams skated out for the third period. Linus Ullmark would normally have taken over in such a situation, but he's been out the last two days with a personal issue. Carter took the brunt of a collision near the crease and may have struck his head or neck area on the post.
Hutton will be between the pipes Tuesday in Philadelphia, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
It's a quick turnaround for the Thunder Bay, Ontario native, who knocked off the Flyers on Monday, turning aside 21 of 22 shots in a 6-1 victory. He and the new-look Sabres offense will look for more of the same Tuesday, this time against Brian Elliott.
Hutton stopped 21 of 22 shots Monday in a 6-1 win at Philadelphia.
Hutton appeared to be on his way to a shutout until Nicolas Aube-Kubel converted a 2-on-1 for the Flyers with just 2:05 left in the third period. Regardless, it was a strong effort from Hutton after he had yielded five goals to Washington in Thursday's season opener.
Hutton will be stationed between the pipes for Monday's contest against the Flyers, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
As expected, Hutton will get the start after Linus Ullmark (personal) was a late scratch. If Ullmark can't go Tuesday, Hutton could get back-to-back starts unless the Sabres opt to go with backup Jonas Johansson.
Hutton is expected to start Monday's game against the Flyers after Linus Ullmark (personal) was ruled out.
The Sabres recalled Jonas Johansson from the taxi squad to serve as Hutton's backup. Hutton started the season opener and was lit up by the Capitals for five goals on 27 shots. The 35-year-old will have a chance to bounce back against the Flyers, who started the year with a two-game sweep of the Penguins.
Hutton made 22 saves in a 6-4 loss to Washington on Thursday. He allowed five goals.
Both he and Ilya Samsonov, the Caps' netminder, were less than perfect all night long and that meant it was an entertaining game for fans. Hutton earned the start Thursday but Linus Ullmark waits in the wings. It's likely the two will platoon this season, so make sure you have insurance. Fantasy goaltending has never been harder to predict than this year.
According to Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News, Hutton was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll get the start in goal in Thursday's home clash with the Capitals.
Linus Ullmark was considered by many to be the favorite to win the Sabres' starting job ahead of training camp, but Hutton evidently impressed in practice, and he has been rewarded for his efforts with the starting nod for Buffalo's season opener. The 35-year-old backstop will likely be tested early and often Thursday, as the Capitals were one of the highest scoring teams in the league last season, averaging 3.42 goals per game, second most in the NHL.
Hutton referred to struggles with his vision during the 2019-20 season in a recent interview, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
The goalie was actually pretty good about not making direct excuses for what was a poor season (12-14-4 record across 31 games and a career-low .898 save percentage) that included one terrible stretch of play in which he went winless from Oct. 24 through Jan. 30. But he did reference the problem -- called convergence insufficiency -- and how he was forced to work through it (and will need to continue to do so) with various eye exercises. No matter how much of an effect the condition had on Hutton's rough campaign, he's likely to enter the 2020-21 season behind Linus Ullmark in the pecking order, though the new Ralph Krueger-led coaching staff seems to prefer more of a direct timeshare. We'll also see if the team adds another goaltender to the mix following yet another missed postseason.
Hutton made 21 saves in a 3-1 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday.
Hutton is struggling -- it was his fourth straight loss. He's under contract for one more season, but his numbers have been less than stellar in Buffalo. Hutton probably isn't the answer there, just like he isn't the answer for your fantasy squad.
Hutton will guard the road goal during Saturday's game against the Flyers, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Hutton has struggled recently, suffering three straight losses while posting a 3.09 GAA and .906 save percentage. Things are unlikely to get better Saturday, as he'll be entering a brutal road matchup with a scorching-hot Philadelphia team that's won eight straight games.
Hutton turned aside 32 of 35 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Winnipeg.
It was hard to fault Hutton on any of the goals, with all three coming in outnumbered situations. The first two were odd-man rushes while the third came on a rebound while the Sabres were shorthanded. Hutton has lost his last three starts, allowing three goals in each one, entering Thursday's home tilt against Pittsburgh.
Hutton will start against the Jets Tuesday night, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
After winning five out of six games, Hutton is coming off back-to-back losses in which he surrendered three goals each contest. He will face a Jets team that's in the thick of the playoff race, so Hutton will need to stand tall to avoid a three-game losing skid.
Hutton stopped 24 of 27 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights on Friday.
Hutton has lost three of his last four starts, which followed a four-game winning streak. The 34-year-old goalie is now 12-12-4 with a 3.18 GAA and an .898 save percentage through 29 appearances. Jonas Johansson may be in line for Saturday's start in Arizona.
Hutton will patrol the crease during Friday's road game versus the Golden Knights, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.
Hutton was pretty solid in his last start Wednesday against Colorado, stopping 31 of 34 shots, but he ultimately suffered his 15th loss of the season due to insufficient goal support from his teammates. The 34-year-old netminder will need to be razor sharp in order to have a shot at getting back in the win column Friday, as he'll be entering a brutal road matchup with a sizzling-hot Vegas team that's won seven straight games.
Hutton turned aside 31 shots in a 3-2 loss to Colorado on Wednesday.
Hutton was tagged with the loss after Colorado's J.T. Compher broke a 2-2 tie just past the midway part of the third period. It was only the second loss in the last seven outings (5-2-0) for the 34-year-old, who has started six of the last seven for the Sabres. Hutton fell to 12-11-4 on the year with a 3.18 GAA and an .898 save percentage.
Hutton will get the starting nod on the road versus Colorado on Wednesday.
Hutton was given the night off versus Winnipeg on Sunday after making five straight appearances in the net, in which he posted a 4-1-0 record and 2.99 GAA. With the Sabres trying to track down a playoff spot, the netminder will need to maintain his peak form and should continue to see a heavy workload down the stretch.
Hutton stopped 41 shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.
The Sabres jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period despite being outshot 12-10, and while Hutton was eventually beaten by Evgeni Malkin in the second, he continued to make big saves to prevent the Pens from ever getting back into the game. The 34-year-old has now won five of his last six starts, but his 2.83 GAA and .916 save percentage over that stretch aren't exactly elite.
Hutton will start in the road crease Saturday versus the Penguins, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Hutton has started four of his last five games, but he has been far from stellar with a .906 save percentage and 2.99 GAA. The Penguins were shut out at home by Frederik Andersen on Thursday, but they've been strong overall this season, ranking sixth with 3.48 goals per home contest.
Hutton allowed six goals on 39 shots in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to Ottawa.
Hutton fell victim to poor special teams play on the part of his teammates, as the Sabres allowed two shorthanded goals and three more on the power play Tuesday evening. The 34-year old has an 11-10-4 record after losing to the Senators, and he lost for the first time in five starts. Despite the recent run of good performances, Hutton remains a risky fantasy play most evenings.
