Carter Hutton stopped all 22 shots he faced in the Predators’ win against the Panthers on Saturday night.
Is it time for the Preds to give Hutton a few starts in a row? While his performance (2.10 GAA, .924 SV%., two shutouts) might warrant it, it’s hard to see them going away from Pekka Rinne, despite his struggles. Hutton has allowed two goals in his past three games. Feb 13 - 10:26 PM

Carter Hutton was outstanding in making 26-of-27 saves to secure the win for the Predators on Wednesday.

If you streamed started Hutton you have to feel pretty good about yourself after this performance. Pekka Rinne had gone three straight starts allowing just one goal and Hutton keeps the rotation going as he follows suit. Hutton has been very solid when called upon, improving his record to 5-2-1 with a 2.36 GAA and .916 save percentage in eight appearances.

Carter Hutton will get the start against the Calgary Flames

Nashville played in Vancouver last night, and with the back-to-back it makes sense to throw the backup into the mix. Starter Pekka Rinne had started in four straight. Hutton has a 4-2-1 record in seven appearances.
Jan 27 - 9:22 PM

Carter Hutton recorded a shutout on 29 saves in the Predators’ 3-0 win against the Wild on Saturday night.

Pekka Rinne is struggling mightily, so Hutton got the start at a time when Rinne would normally be in net. And he could spur Peter Laviolette into using him again Tuesday against the Blackhawks as it was the team's first win in six games. Why not? If you’re in the business of winning hockey games, go with the hot hand. Hutton has a 2.55 GAA and .910 SV%, which is better than Rinne (.902).

Carter Hutton is the likely starter for the Predators in their matchup with the Wild Saturday night.

He was manning the starter's net during Saturday morning's practice and was first off the ice. If Hutton does start it will be his first of the season at home. Hutton is coming off a 4-0 loss to Arizona last Saturday night and sports a very pedestrian 2.97 goals against average and .895 save percentage in limited action.
Jan 16 - 12:42 PM

Carter Hutton gave up three goals on 28 shots in the Predators’ 4-0 loss to the Coyotes on Saturday night.

He gave up one goal while on the penalty kill, and Arizona got one with the net empty as well. Hutton is a below-average goalie who is best never used in fantasy. He has a 2.97 GAA and .895 SV%.
Jan 9 - 11:57 PM

Carter Hutton will face Arizona on Saturday night.

Hutton comes in to his fifth start and sixth game of the season with a 3-1-1 record with 15 goals against and an .895 save percentage. Which means he's not seeing a lot of shots, and not making a lot of saves. You may wish to find a more favorable matchup.

Carter Hutton allowed four goals on 25 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Blues on Tuesday.

Hutton received a rare start, giving Pekka Rinne the night off after he defeated the Rangers last night. The loss drops Hutton's record to 3-1-1 in five games. He is firmly off the fantasy radar.

Carter Hutton will face St. Louis on Tuesday night.

Through three starts and four games this season, Hutton has posted a 3-1-0 record with 11 goals against an alarming .907 save percentage. In five career games against the Blues, Hutton has yet to beat them and has allowed 16 goals in the process. So you may wish to find a more favorable matchup tonight.

Carter Hutton, filling in for first-string goalie Pekka Rinne, needed to make only 15 saves Monday night to help the Nashville Predators upset the Bruins 3-2 in Boston.

Hutton's record this season improved to 3-1-0 after four starts. His goals-against average is 2.74 and his save percentage is .907. Hutton does not play enough to warrant any attention from fantasy players.

Carter Hutton is expected to get the nod for Nashville on Monday at Boston.

He was the first goaltender off the ice in the morning, which indicates that he will start. Nashville will likely go with Pekka Rinne in Chicago on Tuesday night.

Carter Hutton (lower body) is healthy enough to backup Pekka Rinne on Thursday.

Hutton might have gotten the nod on Saturday if not for his ailment. He has a 2.97 GAA and .911 save percentage in three contests this season.

Carter Hutton will be out of Saturday's match against Buffalo with a lower body injury.

No word on the type or severity of Hutton's dubious lower body injury, but we'll keep you posted. Juuse Saros will make his NHL debut in his place. Hutton has stopped 92 of 101 shots in three games this season.

The Buffalo Sabres could see Carter Hutton again on Saturday.

The decision would make sense because the Predators play at Philadelphia on Friday and Pekka Rinne will probably start that contest. Hutton stopped 30 shots in a 3-2 win versus the Sabres on Wednesday. He owns a 4-0 record versus Buffalo in his career to go with a 1.22 goals-against average and a .953 save percentage.
Thu, Nov 26, 2015 10:37:00 AM

Carter Hutton, filling in for starting goalie Pekka Rinne, made 30 saves in the Nashville Predators' 3-2 victory over the Sabres in Buffalo Wednesday night.

It was Hutton's third start of the season. The Preds felt they needed to make a change after three straight shutout losses. Hutton's record is now 2-1-0 with a goals-against average of 2.97 and a save percentage of .911.
