The Winnipeg Jets have announced that Michael Hutchinson will play the entire game tonight against the Edmonton Oilers.

It looks like the Jets goaltending situation will be another point of frustration for the Jets this season as they are currently slated to start the season with Steve Mason, Connor Helleybuyck and Michael Hutchinson on the opening night roster. Steve Mason will most likely get the first crack at being the starting netminder.

Michael Hutchinson may not get another start this season, but he is happy with how he has played down the final stretch.

"I was extremely pleased with how I was able to finish, if that was my last game (this season)," said Hutchinson. "It was a tough season for a bit of a stretch there. I'm glad I was able to come back and help the team win some games down the stretch." He posted a 5-1 record in seven appearances. During his last five starts, Hutchinson surrendered two goals or less four times. The Jets will start Eric Comrie on Thursday and Connor Hellebuyck may be in goal for Saturday's season finale.

Michael Hutchinson extended his personal winning streak to three games on Tuesday night.

He stopped 24 of 26 shots in Winnipeg's 5-2 win over the St. Louis Blues. St. Louis defenseman Alex Pietrangelo beat Hutchinson 35 seconds into the game, but the Jets goalie was able to shake it off. Hutchinson now owns a 9-12-3 record with a 2.92 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage this season.

Apr 4 - 12:53 PM

The Jets trailed 3-1 heading into the third period, but they scored two goals in the final frame, including Dustin Byfuglien's game-tying goal with 12 seconds remaining in regulation. Mark Scheifele added the game-winning goal in OT. Hutchinson has won two straight games and four of his last five decisions.

Mar 26 - 12:10 PM

After going over two months between starts earlier this season, Michael Hutchinson admits he has a chip on his shoulder.

The Jets goalie has used that as a source of motivation. He's started three of Winnipeg's last four games and he has two wins to show for it. "When you sit out that many games, it kind of puts a little bit of a chip on your shoulder," said Hutchinson. "It's a little bit of added motivation right there to go out and show I can play. Other than that, it's been (about) staying confident in my abilities." He has a 6-12-3 record with a 3.06 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage.
Mar 25 - 9:42 AM

Michael Hutchinson stopped 32 of 34 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

After a very long layoff in goal which saw Hutchinson play less than 55 minutes in two months, it is very encouraging to see him regain NHL caliber form in goal for the Jets. The Jets will most likely choose to protect Connor Helleybuyck from the Vegas expansion, leaving Hutchinson exposed. If Hutchinson can show he can still be a quality NHL starter in the final games of the season, he might just be snatched up by the Golden Knights. For now we'd stay far away from the 27-year-old netminder. His record dropped to 6-12-3 with a 3.06 goals against average and a .900 save percentage.
Mar 25 - 2:02 AM

Michael Hutchinson will get the start in Friday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Hutchinson has won each of his last two outings and he's given up a combined two goals during that span. He has a 3.11 goals-against-average and a .897 save percentage this season.
Mar 24 - 9:31 PM

Michael Hutchinson stopped 24 of 26 shots in a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday.

It marks Hutchinson's first start since January 16th. His best save of the night came when he robbed Simmonds with a beautiful glove save. He showed no signs of rust and his confident goaltending will likely earn him another couple of starts before the end of the season. He has won back-to-back games, improving his record to 6-11-3 with a 3.11 goals against average and .897 save percentage.
Mar 21 - 11:07 PM

Michael Hutchinson will be in goal for the Jets on Tuesday night against Philadelphia.

Mar 21 - 12:00 PM
