Michael Hutchinson turned aside 35 of 38 shots in Winnipeg's 5-3 win over Calgary Friday night.

It was Hutchinson's third start of the season. The rookie goalie ended the campaign with a 1.64 goals against average and a .943 save percentage and certainly showed promise for the future.
Apr 12 - 4:50 AM

Coach Paul Maurice hasn't decided yet if Michael Hutchinson will get a third straight start in Winnipeg's season finale Friday night.

"We'll go back and talk and see how he's feeling. If you walked in right now he'd say, 'Why don't we just put all the equipment on again and go play another game.' He's just wired right now," said Maurice after Hutchinson picked up his first victory Thursday. "But we want to put him in a position to have success. At the same time, if he feels good he'll be in the net (Friday) night. He's earned that right. Back-to-backs are a different beast and we'll want to see him in that, too."

Michael Hutchinson was superb for the Jets on Thursday as he earned a 2-1 shootout victory against Boston.

Michael Hutchinson may have earned himself another start with a solid showing in his NHL debut on Monday night.

"He looked solid, square, comfortable and he gave his hockey team a chance to win the game," coach Paul Maurice said after a 1-0 loss to Minnesota. "I will think you'll see Michael one more time, maybe two. One more time for sure." Winnipeg hosts Boston on Thursday and they play in Calgary on Friday to close out the 2013-14 campaign. Hutchinson will be back in the AHL with St. John's for the playoffs afterward.
Apr 8 - 7:11 AM

Michael Hutchinson held his own for the Jets, but suffered a 1-0 loss to Minnesota Monday.

The netminder stopped 16 of 17 shots in his first NHL start, which was made possible due to an injury suffered by regular Al Montoya. With the season drawing to a close, Hutchinson could make a few more starts with Montoya nursing his lower-body ailment.
Apr 7 - 10:53 PM

Michael Hutchinson will get his first NHL start on Monday against Minnesota.

He has been superb in the AHL this season for St. John's, where he has posted a 15-5-1 record along with a .923 save percentage and a 2.33 goals-against average. Hutchinson is up with the Jets because Al Montoya is dealing with a lower-body injury.
Apr 7 - 12:54 PM

Michael Hutchinson may get a start before the regular season is over.

Apr 7 - 9:35 AM

Michael Hutchinson was called up from the minors on Sunday.

He is back with the team after being sent down less than 24 hours earlier. Ondrej Pavelec or Al Montoya could be hurt or unavailable for Monday's contest in Anaheim. The Jets will update the situation after their morning skate.
Mar 31 - 9:35 AM

The Jets have recalled Michael Hutchinson from St. Johns of the AHL.

He will back up Al Montoya while Ondrej Pavelec recovers from a lower-body injury that he sustained Friday night. Hutchinson is 24, so he is hardly a hot young prospect. That said, he has put up tremendous numbers in the minors this season. He sports a 15-5-1 record with a 2.33 goals against average and .923 save percentage. It will be interesting to see what happens if Montoya does not do well over the next two games and Pavelec is not ready to return. Does Hutchinson get a chance?
Mar 15 - 2:21 PM

The Winnipeg Jets have inked Michael Hutchinson to a one-year, two-way deal.

Michael Hutchinson allowed four goals on 13 shots before getting pulled halfway through the first period in a 6-3 loss Saturday night.

Hutchinson was selected with the 77th pick in the 2008 entry draft and is 0-3 with a 4.03 goals against average and an .833 save percentage in three games to start the year in the AHL. "There’s an opportunity for him going into this year to be the No. 1 goaltender. It’s got to be playing on his mind. Only he could tell you if he’s putting too much pressure on himself. But it’s November now and he still doesn’t have a win for us at this point," said Providence Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy. This is a pivotal season for the goalie in the Bruins' organization who is looking to become Tuukka Rask's backup.

This move is in response to Tuukka Rask leaving Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury. If Rask in unavailable, then Hutchinson should serve as Tim Thomas' understudy on Sunday.
