There is no official word out of the Jets as to who will be the starting goalie Sunday afternoon against the Predators.

If we had to make a guess, we would say Michael Hutchinson only because backups tend to play on Sunday and Connor Hellebuyck has allowed 14 goals in four losses, including five on 30 shots to Nashville on Friday. The game starts at 1:00 pm so take your best guess alongside of us.
Nov 27 - 12:09 PM

Michael Hutchinson managed to block 34 shots on goal Saturday night, but it was insufficient to stop the Winnipeg Jets from losing 4-1 to the Boston Bruins.

Hutchinson is now on a five-game losing streak in which he has failed to crack the .900 mark in terms of save percentage. In Saturday night’s loss, he was again under that barrier but only barely with a .895.
Nov 19 - 10:25 PM

Michael Hutchinson will face Boston on Saturday night.

Hutchinson has not been good this season. He still sports a sub-.900 save percentage through eight games this season with 22 goals against. You may wish to find a more favorable matchup tonight.
Nov 19 - 1:20 PM

Although there has been no word from the Jets, we are expecting Michael Hutchinson to get the start Sunday against Los Angeles.

Hutchinson is coming off a decent outing in which he lost 3-2 to Colorado. Hellebucyk was spotty this past week. Just a gut feeling but we could be very wrong.
Nov 13 - 12:41 PM

Michael Hutchinson stopped 25 of 28 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche.

The game ended on an own goal by Ehlers on an unsuspecting Hutchinson. Ehlers was trying to find defenseman Tobias Enstrom with a pass, but the puck went between the defensemen's legs and right into Hutchinson's five-hole. Hutchinson has really found it hard to regain any resemblance of his 2014-15 form and has now being relegated to Connor Hellebuyck's direct backup. The loss drops Hutchinson's record to 2-3-2 on the season.

Michael Hutchinson will face Colorado on Friday night.

The last time Hutchinson had a good game it was his 37-save shutout over these same Avalanche. It's been an up-and-down season for him thus far to say the least, but we'd side with recent history tonight especially with Jacob Trouba back on the blue line.
Nov 11 - 6:38 PM

Michael Hutchinson will probably be in goal for Friday's game against Colorado.

Coach Paul Maurice said recently that he wants to split games among his goalies on consecutive days with travel. Connor Hellebuyck has started four straight games for the Jets, including Thursday's 3-2 win over Arizona.
Nov 11 - 10:12 AM

Michael Hutchinson allowed four goals on 32 shots in Thursday's 4-3 OT loss to the Capitals.

On a positive note, Winnipeg managed to come back from three goals down in the third period to tie the game. Unfortunately for them, they weren't able to complete the comeback. Hutchinson is 0-1-1 in his last two games and he's allowed seven goals during that span. He has a 3.22 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage.
Nov 3 - 11:04 PM

Michael Hutchinson will be between the pipes Thursday at Washington.

He was yanked in his last start when he allowed three goals on 15 shots to Buffalo on Sunday. It won't get any easier for Hutchinson on the road against the Capitals. He has a 2-3-0 record with a 3.09 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage this year.
Nov 3 - 3:43 PM

Michael Hutchinson lasted just 33 minutes after stopping only 12 of 15 shots during Sunday's 3-1 loss to Buffalo.

A 37-save shutout of Colorado on Saturday, and three goals in half a game on Sunday to the Sabres. Thus represents one of the more frustrating parts about judging goalies. But if we've learned anything from this weekend, it's that coach Paul Maurice will ride the hot hand even on consecutive nights. Hutchinson's record now stands at 2-3 with 14 goals against in five games this season.
Oct 30 - 5:53 PM

After pitching a 37-save shutout against the Avalanche on Friday, Michael Hutchinson will get the nod Sunday against the Sabres.

Hutchinson should be a quality play against a mediocre Buffalo offense after winning two of his last three outings.
Oct 30 - 2:34 PM

Michael Hutchinson stopped all 37 shots he faced in a 1-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Friday.

Hutchinson was simply phenomenal for the Jets in this contest and deservedly won first star of the game honors. He has been splitting time between the pipes with fellow netminder Connor Hellebuyck but neither of them has been able to get the edge over the other. However, this impressive performance by Hutchinson might just earn him a few more starts ahead of his counterpart. The win improves Hutchinson's record to 2-2-0, to go along with a 2.77 goals against average and a .918 save percentage.
Oct 28 - 11:51 PM

Michael Hutchinson will get the nod versus Colorado on Friday.

The goalie rotation continues for the Jets after Connor Hellebuyck posted a 4-1 win over Dallas on Thursday. Hutchinson has one victory in three starts this season to go with a 3.71 goals-against average and an .887 save percentage.
Oct 28 - 4:56 PM

Michael Hutchinson allowed three goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Dallas Stars.

This was Hutchinson's third start of the season and he's allowed three goals or more in each of those outings. It's clear that the Jets will be splitting the workload evenly between Hutchinson and Connor Hellebuyck, but that could change if one of them starts to stand out. Hutchinson has a 1-2-0 record with a 3.70 goals-against-average and a .887 save percentage this season.
