Hutton announced his retirement from the NHL on Tuesday, TSN reports.

The 36-year-old veteran spent most of the 2021-22 campaign in the minors, which was probably one of the motivating factors behind his decision to hang up his skates.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Carter Hutton: Dealt to Maple Leafs
Arizona traded Hutton to Toronto in exchange for future considerations Monday.
Hutton cleared waivers Monday and was then flipped to the Maple Leafs. The veteran netminder has spent nearly the entire season on injured reserve, last appearing in an NHL game on Oct. 25. He'll likely be assigned to AHL Toronto and will be expected to fill a depth role with the organization for the rest of the season.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Carter Hutton: On waivers
Hutton (ankle) was placed on waivers Sunday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Per NHL rules, Hutton was activated off injured reserve prior to being placed on waivers and has recovered from the ankle injury that has sidelined him since Oct. 26. If the 36-year-old clears waivers, he will likely be sent to AHL Tucson.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Taking shots Monday
Hutton (ankle) faced some shots in a solo workout session Monday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Hutton has yet to join his teammates for practice as he works his way back from his ankle problem but the fact that he was able to start testing out his ankle in full gear is a step in the right direction. Even once cleared to return, the veteran Hutton may be forced to share the workload with Karel Vejmelka while Scott Wedgewood will likely be shipped down to the minors.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Clears protocols
Hutton Is out of the NHL's COVID-19 protocols but is still dealing with his ankle injury, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Hutton has been shelved since Oct. 25 versus Florida when he sustained his ankle injury, a stretch of 18 games on injured reserve. Once deemed fully fit, Hutton should be in a position to reclaim his spot as the No. 1 netminder in the desert. Until then, Scott Wedgewood should see the majority of the workload.... See More ...

Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Enters COVID-19 protocols
Hutton (lower body) entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Wednesday.
Hutton was already dealing with a lower-body injury, and he'll now have to submit two negative COVID-19 tests before rejoining the Coyotes. Scott Wedgewood and Karel Vejmelka will continue to carry the load until Hutton is cleared to return.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Travels with team
Hutton (lower body) is traveling with the Coyotes on their three-game road trip that begins Friday in Chicago, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Hutton is within the 2-to-4 week timeline he was initially given when diagnosed with the injury. It doesn't seem like his activation from injured reserve is imminent, so expect Karel Vejmelka and Scott Wedgewood to continue to hold down the fort in goal in the near term.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Facing 2-to-4 week absence
Hutton is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with his lower-body injury, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.
Given the expected length of Hutton's absence, he'll almost certainly be placed on injured reserve in the coming days. With Hutton on the shelf, Karel Vejmelka will take over as Arizona's No. 1 netminder, and the Coyotes will need to recall someone from their AHL affiliate to serve as Vejmelka's backup....

Coyotes' Carter Hutton: In goal Monday
Hutton will get the starting nod for Monday's road matchup with Florida, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Hutton has been downright bad to start the year, allowing 14 goals in a pair of losing efforts. With Hutton struggling, the Coyotes utilized rookie Karel Vejmelka in their last two contests and may go back to the 25-year-old if Hutton puts together another disappointing outing versus the Panthers....

Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Exits Monday's contest
Hutton (lower body) left Monday's game in Florida and will not return, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Hutton stopped 10-of-11 shots in the first period but didn't come back out for the second. He was replaced by Karel Vejmelka and more information should be available regarding his injury in the coming days.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Another disaster start
Hutton yielded six goals on 21 shots in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Blues.
Hutton was blitzed for five goals in a span of 5:07 during the second period before Karel Vejmelka replaced him. Through two appearances, Hutton has given up an astonishingly awful 14 goals on 47 shots. The Coyotes are in no position to contend this year, but their performance so far is hardly respectable. Vejmelka could soon eat away at Hutton's playing time, while 22-year-old Ivan Prosvetov and 23-year-old Josef Korenar are waiting with AHL Tucson for their chances to prove themselves at a higher level....

Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Tending twine Monday
Hutton will defend the cage for Monday's home clash with the Blues, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Hutton was absolutely shelled in his first game of the season to the tune of eight goals on 26 shots for a disastrous .692 save percentage. With youngster Karel Vejmelka posting a .970 save percentage in his first outing of the year, Hutton should consider himself on notice of potentially losing the starting job if he can't discover his game soon....

Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Lit up in loss
Hutton yielded eight goals on 26 shots in Thursday's 8-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Just about nothing went right for the Coyotes or Hutton in the season opener. Seven different Blue Jackets were able to put a puck behind the 35-year-old, and Oliver Bjorkstrand did it twice. Hutton's last useful campaign for fantasy managers came in 2018-19, when he had a 3.00 GAA and a .908 save percentage in 50 games for the Sabres. He'll be the No. 1 option for the Coyotes this year, but he's likely to be on the losing end of many games.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Tending twine Thursday
Hutton will defend the cage on the road against the Blue Jackets on Thursday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Hutton enters the 2021-22 season as the clear No. 1 between the pipes after being relegated to the backup role with Buffalo last year. Fantasy players probably shouldn't expect 25-year-old Karel Vejmelka to challenge Hutton for starts, which means the veteran could see upward of 55-60 games this year.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Guarding crease Tuesday
Hutton will get the starting nod for Tuesday's preseason tilt with the Kings, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Hutton should be on the ice for at least two periods Tuesday as he gets prepared for the regular season. The 35-year-old is expected to be Arizona's primary goalie this season but may have a short leash after posting an unsightly .886 save percentage and 3.47 GAA in 13 games with Buffalo last year....

Coyotes' Carter Hutton: On ice for practice
Hutton (lower body) skated with the Coyotes' first practice group at Thursday's first training camp session, Jose M. Romero of Arizona Central reports.
Hutton is expected to have a chance to at least earn a timeshare role with the Coyotes, who drastically overhauled their goaltending group in the offseason. The 35-year-old missed the last six-plus weeks of 2020-21 with a lower-body injury, but his presence at practices suggests he's fully healthy heading into the new season.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Carter Hutton: Lands with Arizona
Hutton (lower body) signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday.
With Darcy Kuemper and Adin Hill traded away and Antti Raanta signing with the Hurricanes, Hutton has a chance to at least take on a 1B role with the Coyotes in 2021-22. The 35-year-old posted a 1-10-1 record with a 3.47 GAA and an .886 save percentage with the Sabres last season, his third straight year of declining performance after peaking in 2017-18. He's not likely to have much fantasy appeal for the rebuilding Coyotes.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Carter Hutton: Won't return this season
Hutton (lower body) will be shut down for the rest of the 2020-21 campaign, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Hutton has been out of action since March 22 versus the Rangers, a stretch of 23 games on the shelf due to his lower-body issue. With Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen (lower body) and Dustin Tokarski (personal) also done for the year, it may fall to Michael Houser to close out the season for the Sabres, though Linus Ullmark (lower body) has been on the ice at practice....

Sabres' Carter Hutton: Suffers setback
According to coach Don Granato, Hutton (lower body) has suffered a setback in his recovery, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.
Hutton still hasn't been ruled out of the remainder of the season, but the Sabres only have seven games remaining in 2020-21, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the veteran netminder miss the rest of the year. With Hutton and Linus Ullmark (lower body) both sidelined, Dustin Tokarski and Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen will continue to operate as Buffalo's top two netminders.... See More ... See Less
