Kings' Ben Hutton: Production in L.A. as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: On track for improved season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Helpers in three straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Offers assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Distributes pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Quiet return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutton (illness) is in the projected lineup for Wednesday's game against the Penguins,'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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Out sick Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Tallies game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Busy night against Islanders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Snags assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Finds twine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Snaps six-game point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Mixed results Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Provides lone goal for Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Pointless in past five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutton's most recent point came Oct. 9 against his old team, Vancouver, but since then, he's been off the scoresheet in his past five games.

Hutton actually got off to a nice start with two points and a plus-3 rating in his first four games, but things have cooled off since then. He's now back to the same kind of form he showed in Vancouver, which is to say he's a decent defensive option for his team but won't do much for fantasy rosters.

Kings' Ben Hutton: Lands one-year deal with LA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutton signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Kings on Tuesday, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

Hutton was selected by Vancouver in the fifth round of the 2012 draft and spent the last four seasons with the Canucks, totaling 11 goals and 70 points while posting 111 PIM and a minus-75 rating in 276 games. The 26-year-old will be a solid bottom-four option for LA in 2019-20, but he's never notched more than 25 points in a single season and will likely post an ugly plus-minus rating on a rebuilding Kings squad, so he won't be a desirable fantasy option.

Canucks' Ben Hutton: Not expected to be qualified
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutton is not expected to receive a qualifying offer from Vancouver, making him an unrestricted free agent, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Hutton scored five goals and 20 points in 69 games last season, his first 20-point campaign since his 2015-16 rookie season. Assuming the 26-year-old doesn't get traded, he will be free to join any team this offseason.

Canucks' Ben Hutton: Quiet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutton (foot) had two shots and two blocked shots while skating 24:37 in a 3-2 shootout win over the Kings on Thursday.

Hutton remains at 20 points in 65 appearances this season after missing 11 contests with the injury. With the emergence of Quinn Hughes, who also returned from a foot injury Thursday, the Canucks' blue line is suddenly crowded, making Hutton no guarantee to feature in all of their last four games.

Canucks' Ben Hutton: Returning to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hutton (foot) will be back with the Canucks for Thursday's matchup against the Kings, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

Hutton has missed the previous 11 contests, but will get back into action and help a banged up Canucks blueline. He has five goals and 20 points through 64 games this year. While his recent absence will likely prevent him from surpassing his career-high 25 point total, 2018-19 has served as a nice bounce back season for the defender. Hutton only tallied six points last year.
