Hutton cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Friday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
In turn, the 27-year-old defenseman should be available for Saturday's matchup against the Golden Knights. Having joined the team off a PTO, it's unclear how often Hutton will play this season. Hutton posted 16 points, 76 blocked shots and 51 hits over 65 games with the Kings last year.
Hutton (COVID-19 protocols) inked a one-year, $950,000 contract with Anaheim on Friday.
Hutton was previously with the Ducks on a PTO and appears to have earned himself a permanent deal. The 27-year-old blueliner was previously named on the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list, so it's not immediately clear when he might be eligible to play. Additionally, per league rules, the Ontario native will need to be placed on waivers.
Hutton has been listed among the players out due to virus protocols, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Hutton was released from his professional tryout with the Ducks on Wednesday after only three days, and this may have something to do with it. The free agent defenseman will be sidelined indefinitely.
Hutton was released from his professional tryout with the Ducks on Wednesday, per TSN.
Hutton's stay with the Ducks was short, as he only joined them on a PTO last Sunday. He'll be a free agent until he can find a contract with another team.
Hutton signed a professional tryout agreement with the Ducks on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Hutton had 16 points in 65 games with the Kings in 2019-20. The Ducks recently lost Christian Djoos on waivers to the Red Wings -- getting Hutton under contract would give them more depth along the blue line. He'd likely compete with Jacob Larsson for playing time on the third pairing.
Hutton managed 16 points in 65 games prior to the league's suspension of play in mid-March.
The fifth-year NHLer's first year in Los Angeles has looked mostly the same offensively, as Hutton landed between 19-25 points in three of his four seasons with Vancouver. He doesn't chip in anything extraordinary in the peripheral categories, either, so fantasy owners can continue to bypass the 27-year-old for their virtual squads.
Hutton was closing in on last season's stats in his first year in Los Angeles at the time of the hiatus, sitting a goal short of tying his career high.
His 16 points in 65 games was behind the pace he set in Vancouver in 2018-19, but he plays for a lesser team in Los Angeles and has improved his plus-minus as well as reducing his penalty minutes. He's likely to be a solid part of Los Angeles' defense moving forward, assuming the Kings bring him back after his contract expires at the end of the season.
Hutton collected an assist and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Senators.
Hutton has five helpers in his last five games, including one in each of his last three outings. The 26-year-old defenseman is up to 16 points, 114 shots, 76 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating through 65 contests this season.
Hutton contributed an assist, four shots on goal and three blocked shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Hutton had a hand in a third-period goal by Alex Iafallo. The 26-year-old defenseman now has 15 points, 111 shots, 75 blocks and a plus-5 rating through 64 games this year. He's the more defensive half of a pairing with Drew Doughty -- Hutton's fantasy value is limited to deeper formats.
Hutton notched two assists, three hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Golden Knights.
Hutton drew the secondary helper on Anze Kopitar's opening tally and an insurance goal by Trevor Lewis midway through the second period. The 26-year-old Hutton is up to 13 points, 101 shots, 71 blocks and 50 hits through 61 contests. His general lack of offense will likely keep fantasy owners disinterested.
Hutton (illness) put a shot on goal, dished a hit and went plus-1 in 18:40 during Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Penguins.
Hutton skated on the second pairing in Wednesday's contest. The 26-year-old will likely serve in a similar role down the stretch, but with just 11 points and 98 shots through 59 games, he's not likely to make much of an impact in fantasy.
Hutton (illness) is in the projected lineup for Wednesday's game against the Penguins, NHL.com's Dan Greenspan reports.
Hutton missed Sunday's loss to the Oilers due to an illness, but he was never expected to be sidelined for long. The former Canuck is expected to skate with Matt Roy on the Kings' second pairing Wednesday.
Hutton (illness) will not suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Oilers, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
Hutton has four goals and 11 points this season while spending most of his time on the second pairing. The 26-year-old will likely be good to go for Wednesday's contest against Pittsburgh, but Joakim Ryan will fill in while he's out.
Hutton scored a goal on three shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Panthers.
Hutton's go-ahead tally at 12:45 of the third period ended up being the game-winning goal. The 26-year-old defenseman is up to 11 points, 96 shots, 69 blocked shots and 46 hits through 57 contests this year. He plays a minor role on a poor team -- Hutton isn't going to generate much, if any, fantasy interest.
Hutton finished Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders with a goal, an assist and two hits.
Thursday's loss saw Hutton score just his third goal of the campaign. His two points in this game give him 10 in 54 games in 2019-20, which means Hutton as a fantasy option should be avoided at all costs.
Hutton provided an assist in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Coyotes.
Hutton had the primary helper on Alex Iafallo's opening tally at 8:37 of the first period. The blueliner has posted a modest eight points, 85 shots on goal and 67 blocked shots in 51 games this season. Hutton's not likely to contribute much offense, so he need not be on most fantasy rosters.
Hutton scored a goal on two shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.
Hutton hadn't scored in the last 34 games and had only a single assist in his previous 20 outings. He's not much of a difference-maker on the scoresheet with seven points and 76 shots on goal through 46 games. The defenseman has added 63 blocked shots and 34 hits this season, but fantasy owners can keep him off their rosters with virtually no concern of an impending surge.
Hutton recorded an assist, three blocked shots, three shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Islanders.
Hutton had the secondary assist on a first-period tally by Dustin Brown. Hutton has just five points, 47 shots on goal and 33 blocks through 25 games. At that pace, he'd fall short of the 20 points he had in 69 contests with the Canucks last season. Hutton is a defense-first blueliner, which will keep him on the waiver wire in most fantasy formats.
Hutton picked up an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Wild.
Hutton's third helper of the year gives him four points, 23 blocked shots and 36 shots on goal in 18 appearances. That said, he's probably not much of a fantasy asset outside of the very deepest of leagues.
Hutton scored a goal on two shots and blocked a pair of shots in a 5-1 loss to the Wild on Saturday.
Hutton beat Minnesota goalie Alex Stalock with a heavy wrist shot from the top of the left faceoff circle early in the second period for his first goal of the year. In fact, it was the first goal since Jan. 13 for the defense-first defenseman, who is in his first year as a King after spending his first four years in Vancouver. He's capable of chipping in some offense periodically, but is best left on the waiver wire.
