  • Michael Hutchinson: No longer in Red Wings camp

    Hutchinson was released from his professional tryout Friday, according to Ansar Khan of MLive.com.

    Hutchinson was 2-6-3 with a 4.29 GAA and .875 save percentage last season with the Blue Jackets. He is expected to play for AHL Grand Rapids to begin 2023-24 while waiting for another NHL chance.

  • Red Wings' Michael Hutchinson: Links up with Detroit on PTO

    Hutchinson signed a professional tryout agreement with the Red Wings on Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Hutchinson went 2-6-3 with a 4.29 GAA and an .875 save percentage over 16 games with the Blue Jackets last season after he was traded from the Vegas organization in the Jonathan Quick deal. Hutchinson joins a crowded crease in Detroit, as Ville Husso is the established starter with James Reimer and Alex Lyon competing for the backup gig.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Surrenders goal in relief

    Hutchinson kicked out seven of eight shots in relief in Friday's 5-2 loss to Buffalo.

    Hutchinson came out for the start of the third period because starting goaltender Jon Gillies suffered a lower-body injury. Columbus was already down 3-2 when Hutchinson took over, so he wasn't charged with the loss. He has finished the campaign with a 2-6-3 record, 4.29 GAA and .877 save percentage in 16 outings.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Nabs win over Pens

    Hutchinson stopped 34 shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Penguins.

    It was perhaps a bad time for Hutchinson to put together what might have been his best performance of the season, as the win catapulted Columbus ahead of Anaheim and Chicago at the bottom of the NHL standings and hurt the Jackets' chances of landing Connor Bedard in the draft. Hutchinson likely won't play Friday against the Sabres, and if the 33-year-old netminder is done for the season, he finishes with a 2-6-3 record, 4.24 GAA and .877 save percentage in 15 NHL games.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: In goal Thursday

    Hutchinson will get the starting nod at home versus the Penguins on Thursday, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    While Hutchinson will no doubt be hoping to secure his second win of the season, having gone 1-6-3 in 14 outings this year, the franchise may not be on the same page with the chance to secure the worst record in the NHL on the line. With Hutchinson taking the first game of the Jackets' season-ending back-to-back, fantasy players can expect Jon Gillies to get the nod versus Buffalo on Friday.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Falls in overtime

    Hutchinson allowed four goals on 39 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flyers.

    Hutchinson settled down after surrendering two goals in the first period, holding Philadelphia to just a power-play tally in the second. However, he'd concede the winning goal to Owen Tippett in overtime, dropping a sixth consecutive game. The 33-year-old Hutchinson is 1-6-3 this year with an .871 save percentage. He'll likely make one more start over Columbus' final two contests this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Starting in Philadelphia

    Hutchinson will defend the road net Tuesday against Philadelphia, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Hutchinson has gone winless in his past five starts, having allowed 23 goals on 167 shots. He has a 1-6-2 record this season with a 4.53 GAA and an .868 save percentage in 13 appearances. The Flyers rank 29th in the league this campaign with 2.64 goals per game.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: No help from his teammates

    Hutchinson made 24 saves in a 4-0 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.

    The journeyman goaltender got no support from his teammates, who were up against the great Igor Shesterkin. Hutchinson has one win (1-6-2) since his arrival in Columbus in early March, and he's allowed 23 goals over his last five starts. There's no fantasy value here.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Facing Rangers

    Hutchinson will guard the home net Saturday against the Rangers, per Coby Maeir of 1stOhioBattery.com

    Hutchinson struggled in his last start Thursday against the Devils, allowing five goals on 24 shots before he was pulled in the third period. He'll have another tough task Saturday against a Rangers team averaging 3.4 goals per game. The 33-year-old Hutchinson is 1-5-2 with an .869 save percentage on the year.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Pulled in loss

    Hutchinson allowed five goals on 24 shots in the Blue Jackets' 8-1 loss to the Devils on Thursday.

    Hutchinson did not have his A-game against New Jersey, allowing five goals through 2:07 into the third period before getting pulled. This marks four straight losses for Hutchinson, allowing at least five goals in three of those starts. On the season, the former Maple Leaf has a 1-5-2 record with a 4.58 GAA and a .869 save percentage.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Slated to face Devils

    Hutchinson is expected to start in Thursday's road game against New Jersey, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Hutchinson surrendered seven goals on a staggering 49 shots in a 7-0 loss to Florida on Saturday, so he'll naturally hope for more support this time around. He's 1-4-2 with a 4.37 GAA and an .875 save percentage in 11 outings this season. The Devils have won three of their last four games, bringing their record up to 49-21-8.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Hung out to dry Saturday

    Hutchinson made 42 saves in Saturday's 7-0 loss to the Panthers.

    The netminder was under siege all game and got almost no help from an injury-ravaged blue line corps that was little better than an AHL-quality unit. Elvis Merzlikins (lower body) remains sidelined, and Columbus has little reason to let him play again this season, so Hutchinson could see a hefty workload to close out the schedule. That likely won't translate into much fantasy value, though -- in 11 appearances since the beginning of March, Hutchinson is 1-4-2 with a 4.37 GAA and .875 save percentage.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Between pipes Saturday

    Hutchinson will defend the home crease versus Florida on Saturday, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Hutchinson is 1-3-2 in 10 NHL games this season. His peripherals leave a lot to be desired, as he has a 4.02 GAA and .879 save percentage this season. He will take on the Panthers, who are fifth in NHL scoring, averaging 3.46 goals per contest.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Falls in overtime

    Hutchinson stopped 29 of 31 shots in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins.

    Hutchinson was solid against a first-place Bruins team, allowing just a power-play goal in regulation before eventually falling in overtime. Hutchinson has faced 35 or more shots in his last four starts, going 1-2-1 over that span. The 33-year-old netminder falls to 1-3-2 with an .879 save percentage on the season.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Starting in Beantown

    Hutchinson will patrol the road crease versus the Bruins on Thursday, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Hutchinson wasn't great in his last start Tuesday against the Rangers, surrendering five goals on 35 shots en route to a 6-2 loss. He'll try to get back in the win column in a brutal road matchup with a Boston squad that's 30-4-3 at home this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Allows five in loss

    Hutchinson stopped 30 of 35 shots in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Rangers.

    Hutchinson was shaky early, allowing three goals in the first period. The 33-year-old netminder would settle down, allowing just two goals over the final two frames, but the Blue Jackets couldn't overcome the early deficit. Hutchinson falls to 1-3-1 with an .871 save percentage through nine appearances this season. Hutchinson could see an uptick in starting time with Elvis Merzlikins (lower body) sidelined, but he doesn't offer much for fantasy purposes.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Starting Tuesday

    Hutchinson will defend the road net Tuesday against the Rangers, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Hutchinson has a 1-2-1 record at the NHL level this season, having allowed 23 goals on 182 shots in eight appearances. He will be backed up by Jon Gillies due to the absence of Elvis Merzlikins (lower body). The Rangers rank 12th in the league this campaign with 3.33 goals per game.

  • Blue Jackets' Michael Hutchinson: Allows two in relief

    Hutchinson allowed two goals on eight shots coming in relief in the Blue Jackets' 8-2 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday.

    After Elvis Merzlikins exited late in the second period, Hutchinson didn't fare much better, giving up goals to Alex Belzile and Nick Suzuki in the third period. This game marks the fifth time that Hutchinson has come in relief for the Blue Jackets since being acquired from Vegas before the trade deadline. Hutchinson should remain the backup to Elvis Merzlikins for the remainder of the season.

    Hutchinson will patrol the home crease versus the Islanders on Friday, Coby Maeir of 1st Ohio Battery reports.

    Hutchinson has started three games and has come on in relief in three other contests this season. He is 0-2-1 with a 4.16 GAA and .875 save percentage. He will face the Islanders, who are currently holding down the first Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference.
