RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Alex Hutchings.
Hutchings is fast and fearless, two character traits that help offset his small size (5-10, 180). But his first year in pro hockey was largely forgettable. The former offensive dynamo from junior fell flat on his face in the AHL and he soon found himself in the East Coast league where he really didn't do much better. He has the offensive skill to be a difference maker for the Bolts' AHL squad this season but he's going to have to demonstrate a whole lot more commitment to advance.
Fast. Fearless. Skilled. But small. Remind you of anyone? The Marty St. Louis comps are real but this kid has a long way to go before he could ever skate along Mighty Mite's trajectory. He's likely to return to the Barrie Colts of the OHL for 2010-11 but he should be on your prospect radar. He sure is on ours.
Hutchings scored 34 goals and 68 points in 63 games with the OHL's Barrie Colts. He's fast and intelligent, but he's a long shot to make it to the NHL. Another couple more seasons in the OHL should tell the tale.
