February 2022 – After signing an AHL pro deal to return to the Colorado Eagles, Mutala was instead reassigned to the WHL as an over-ager for a fifth season with Tri City. His 21 points in 27 games isn’t as high as one would hope for a 20-year-old, however his team very weak and produces the second-to-least offense in the league so some blame can be assigned to his supporting cast.

Do not draft unless he translates production into pro and signs an NHL contract. Hayden Soboleski

March 2021 – After a brief amateur tryout period in the AHL, Mutala is returning to the WHL as the league gets back up and running. In 4 contests with the AHL Eagles, the winger played near-exclusively in the bottom-six but still managed 2 SOG/game which was promising. His single assist didn’t raise any eyebrows and he did not particularly stand out, but being able to generate shots in limited ice time was a good sign of life. The Avs lose his signing rights in July 2021 and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him get an AHL deal with the club (or elsewhere if Colorado moves on). He isn’t an essential prospect for the team and shouldn&#
