2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Leafs re-upped Hutchinson on a one-year deal for 2019-20, and he'll compete with Garret Sparks for the privilege to warm the end of the bench behind Frederik Andersen. Hutchinson appeared in five games with Toronto in 2018-19, recording two wins, a 2.64 GAA and .914 save percentage. Those numbers are better than the ones Sparks put up, but neither player is a guarantee. Hutchinson lost his AHL job in the playoffs to the undrafted Kasimir Kaskisuo, a guy who was barely good enough to be in the ECHL before last season. He could catch lightning in a bottle and earn the NHL job, and if he shows any potential, he's worth using for spot starts simply because of the team that surrounds him. Just don't go buying Hutchinson until you know he can stop pucks and that coach Mike Babcock trusts him. Read Past Outlooks

Hutchinson allowed five goals on 35 shots in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to Dallas in Game 7.
ANALYSIS
Hutchinson, making his third straight start in place of the injured Pavel Francouz (undisclosed), was done in by a Joel Kiviranta hat trick and a pair of Alexander Radulov power-play goals. The 30-year-old Hutchinson struggled in a backup role with Toronto during the regular season before being acquired by the Avalanche at the trade deadline. He made one regular-season start and four playoff appearances for Colorado.

Considering the Jets signed the 24-year-old Connor Hellebuyck to a six-year contract, there was little chance Hutchinson was getting any sort of significant playing time in Winnipeg. The move to Florida puts the 27-year-old behind a pair of older netminders in Roberto Luongo (38) and James Reimer (29) -- both of whom struggled with injuries last season. The right-handed glove figures to spend the bulk of the year with AHL Springfield, but could see some crease time in the event his compatriots can't stay healthy.
Hutchinson was given the chance to serve as Winnipeg’s No. 2 netminder last season -- especially with Connor Hellebuyck underperforming -- but his own struggles forced the organization to bring in former Flyer Steve Mason during the offseason. As a result, the 27-year-old Hutchinson will return to AHL Manitoba for the bulk of the 2017-18 campaign as he enters the final year of his contract.
Hutchinson didn't perform particularly well in his third year with the Jets, staking no claim on the starting role, but still receiving a new contract. With the future between the pipes uncertain in Winnipeg, the 26-year-old will have to prove last year was a fluke. The netminder posted a 9-15-3 record, registering a .907 save percentage and 2.84 GAA. That’s not promising when stacking it against his 2014-15 campaign (21-10-5 record, .914 save percentage, 2.38 GAA). If he can return to the glory days, Hutchinson has a real shot at stepping in as the starter in place of Ondrej Pavelec, but young prospect Connor Hellebuyck also figures to be in the mix.
Hutchinson put forth a strong rookie campaign in 2014-15 -- he was locked into a goaltender platoon with Ondrej Pavelec for much of the season and even enjoyed a stretch of time as the unchallenged starter, but lost his footing toward the end of the year and ended up ceding the No. 1 role. Although Hutchinson proved that he can perform like a legitimate starting NHL goaltender in spurts, he also showed signs that he wasn’t quite ready to take on a full season’s workload. The 25-year-old’s role with Winnipeg is a bit uncertain heading into the 2015-16 season, but for now, it appears as though he will begin the year as the team’s backup netminder -- if one with a bigger share of the job than usual. Winnipeg will likely once again opt to employ some sort of goaltender rotation this season, so Hutchinson will carry some fantasy value even if he's unable to usurp Pavelec this time around.
Few young players in the Winnipeg organization saw their star rise as much as Hutchinson in 2013-14. After a few uninspiring seasons in the Bruins' minor league system, Hutchinson found a home with AHL St. John’s last season, posting a 2.30 GAA and .923 save percentage over 24 appearances. He earned a late-season call-up to Winnipeg and continued to impress in his three games with the parent club, recording a 1.64 GAA and a .943 save percentage while amassing a 2-1-0 record. Obviously that sample size is far too small to anoint Hutchinson the next Patrick Roy, but it does mean the Jets will be looking for an opportunity to let him prove those numbers were no fluke. He’s expected to start the season as the backup, but with starter Ondrej Pavelec coming off a disappointing season, it’s easy to envision how Hutchinson might get the chance to push his way into a platoon. He doesn’t hold much value yet outside of deeper leagues, but if Hutchinson starts stringing together some wins in place of Pavelec, he'll almost certainly be a goalie worth owning.
Hutchinson went 13-13-3 with a 2.30 GAA and .914 save percentage with AHL Providence this past season. The former Bruins farmhand will now provide goaltending depth in the minor leagues for the Jets.
Hutchinson, who played in 29 games for AHL Providence last season, going 13-14-1 with a 2.36 GAA and .927 save percentage, provides the B’s with goaltending depth behind starter Tuukka Rask and backup Anton Khudobin.
Hutchinson is a goaltending prospect who is clearly behind Tim Thomas, Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin in the B's netminding pecking order.

Hutchinson, who came on strong after taking over as the (OHL) Barrie Colts' goaltender, has good puckhandling skills. Drafted 77th overall in '08, he gives the B's organization further young netminding depth with the likes of Tim Thomas and Manny Fernandez not getting any younger.
