Carter Hutton: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Hutton, who signed a one-year contract with the Preds in July, was previously in the Chicago Blackhawks' minor league system. The 27-year-old Hutton appeared in 51 games for AHL Rockford last season, posting a 26-22-1 record, 2.72 goals-against average and .908 save percentage. He is expected to open the season for the Preds as the backup to Pekka Rinne, but is unlikely to see much ice time in that role.
Hutton is the number three goalie on the Chicago depth chart heading into this season. He started last season in the ECHL, but moved up to Rockford of the AHL when Alexander Salak got hurt; he never looked back. He delivered a 22-13-4 record with a 2.35 GAA and .917 save percentage. Still, the Hawks are his third organization in three years, and this is his first real breakout. He could be a back-up for the Hawks' in 2013-14 if he continues to excel.
Hutton, a native of Thunder Bay, Ontario, inked a deal with the Sharks as an unrestricted free agent in June of 2010. At UMass-Lowell, he shined between the pipes with a a four-year average of 2.35 in the goals-against average category. No need to jump on the Hutton bandwagon just yet, however. Last season was his first taste of the professional game, and he only had the chance to stop pucks in four games - all with the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL, when he was property of the Flyers. Look for Hutton with Worcester this season.
