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.
Nov 26 - 10:37 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.
Nov 25 - 11:26 PM

Carter Hutton will probably start on Wednesday against the Buffalo Sabres.

Nashville has been leaning heavily on Pekka Rinne this season, so this would just be Hutton's third start of 2015-16. Hutton has a 3.44 GAA and .899 save percentage in two contests.
Nov 25 - 4:57 PM

Carter Hutton has been activated off of I/R.

Hutton has seen just two games of work this season, and isn't expected to see all that many as the Predators continue to ride all-world netminder Pekka Rinne. Through 61 career games however, Hutton has posted a 27-20-7 record with a .907 save percentage and a 2.66 GAA. In a related move, the Predators sent Marek Mazanec back down to AHL Milwaukee.
Nov 15 - 2:35 PM

Carter Hutton has an upper-body injury and he has been placed on injured reserve.

The ailment will keep him out of Nashville's next three games. Hutton will be eligible to return next Tuesday. Marek Mazanec was called up from the minors on Monday to take Hutton's place on the roster.
Nov 10 - 11:16 AM

Carter Hutton has an undisclosed ailment that could keep him out of Tuesday's game against Ottawa.

Nashville has brought up Marek Mazanec on an emergency basis and placed Eric Nystrom on injured reserve because of Hutton's injury.
Nov 9 - 12:23 PM

Carter Hutton stopped 24 of 28 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Ducks on Sunday.

Hutton gave Rinne the night off after Rinne played last night. Hutton is now 1-1-0 on the year. He has no fantasy value as the backup goaltender in Nashville. He should only be owned in the event of a Pekka Rinne injury.
Nov 1 - 10:44 PM

Carter Hutton will be in net against the Ducks on Sunday.

In his only appearance this season, Hutton stopped 38 of 41 shots in victory. However in his one career start against the Ducks, he stopped 30 of 33 and lost. Either way, Hutton owns a career .908 save percentage and 2.68 GAA in 60 games since 2012. He's an iffy start at best.
Nov 1 - 7:14 PM

Carter Hutton set away 38 of 41 shots in the Predators’ 4-3 shootout win against the Senators on Saturday night.

Not too shabby, especially when considering it was Hutton’s first action of the season. He is unlikely to get more than a handful of starts each month. Hutton had a 2.61 GAA and .902 SV% last season.
Oct 17 - 11:10 PM

Carter Hutton will get the start against the Senators Saturday night.

It will be Hutton's first start of the season as the Preds want to give Pekka Rinne a night off. Ottawa has been a hot club to start the year so we can't reasonably recommend Hutton Saturday night.
Oct 17 - 11:46 AM

Carter Hutton set aside 21 shots in the Predators’ 4-1 loss to the Stars on Saturday night.

Pekka Rinne was getting the night off with the playoffs right around the corner. Hutton lost three games in a row to end the year. He had a 2.61 goals-against average and .902 save percentage.
Apr 11 - 11:11 PM

In a largely meaningless game against the Dallas Stars, the Nashville Predators are rolling with Carter Hutton in net.

Hutton last played on March 29, allowing four goals in a loss to the Calgary Flames. He's 6-6-4 with a .904 save percentage and 2.59 GAA in 2014-15.
Apr 11 - 12:47 PM

Carter Hutton allowed four goals on 29 shots in Sunday's 5-2 loss to Calgary.

Nashville scored an early goal but Hutton allowed a pair of goals in both the first and second period. The 29-year-old was most effective when he was filling in for an injured Pekka Rinne but he does appear to struggle when he plays sparingly. Hutton's record falls to 6-6-4 record with a 2.59 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage.
Mar 29 - 8:01 PM

Carter Hutton is expected to get the start in Sunday's game vs. Calgary.

The 29-year-old has a 6-5-4 record with a 2.48 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage in 16 games this season. He last played on March 3rd against New Jersey.
