Carter Hutton may have some options when it comes to signing with a new team.

Hutton will leave the Predators for free ageny and this week's trades of Brian Elliott and Frederik Anderson may have opened up a few opportunities for Hutton to sign as a backup. The Flames are still looking for someone to team with the newly acquired Elliott and now there are backup openings in Anaheim and St. Louis. Marek Mazanec will serve as Pekka Rinne's understudy this upcoming season in Nashville.

Carter Hutton sounds like he wants to test unrestricted free agency.

"Carter (Hutton) sees signing with the Predators as a little bit of a dead end to his career," said GM David Poile. "It's not over yet, but that's probably the way Carter is leaning. I have a hard time arguing against that." Nashville announced the re-signing of Marek Mazanec on Monday and he could be the team's backup goalie next year.

Carter Hutton would like to stay with the Nashville Predators.

"The unknown starts now," said Hutton, who can become an unrestricted free agent in July. "It's something I've been through numerous times now. Obviously, this situation is a lot different than years past. I've kind of established myself and had a pretty strong year. Obviously, I play in a tough situation here. That's my job. ... I love Nashville. I want to be in Nashville, so hopefully we can figure something out here to make me stay." He went 7-5-4 with a 2.33 goals-against average and .918 save percentage in 17 appearances in 2015-16. Nashville is also interested in keeping him around.
