Observations

July 2020 – Hutton is in Group Two at training camp with fellow defensemen Johnny Boychuk, Nick Leddy and Thomas Hickey. Group One blanked Group Two 2-0 in the first scrimmage of training camp. Mark Allan

June 2020 – Hutton didn’t add to his team-high six goals in Bridgeport’s final three contests before AHL play was suspended, but he posted four assists. Besides enhancing his reputation for offense from the back end, he was also minus-5, an extremely respectable number for a bad Bridgeport squad. Signed as an undrafted free agent, the 24-year-old RFA improved his chances of a new deal. Mark Allan

March 2020 – After proving with Ohio’s Miami University that he can score from the back end (29 total goals in his sophomore, junior and senior seasons), Hutton signed a one-year entry-level contract with the Islanders as an undrafted free agent. A team captain in his final schedule with the Redhawks, he then inked an amateur tryout contract with Bridgeport and produced a promising goal and five assists in nine late-season outings with the Sound Tigers, although he was pointless in five AHL playoff appearances. The points have not come at the same pace in his first full-time pro campaign (17 in 52 games), although he leads Bridgeport with six goals, all at even strength. That can not hurt his bargaining position as an RFA in the off-season. At 24, the well-built 6-4, 205-pounder should have an edge in maturity over his rival prospects. Making it to the NHL as an undrafted player is a challenge, but not an impossible dream. Hutton has demonstrated leadership qualities and a strong work ethic. Mark Allan
