Carter John Hutton (born December 19, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender. He is currently under contract to the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

On May 26, 2010, Hutton was signed by the Philadelphia Flyers after his season in college was over. He played in 4 games for the Phantoms and dressed in several for the Philadelphia Flyers as Brian Boucher's backup after being called up while Johan Backlund was out with an injury.[1]

On June 1, 2010, Hutton was signed by the San Jose Sharks as an unrestricted free agent.[2] On August 1, 2011, the Rockford Icehogs signed Hutton to a one-year AHL contract.[3]

On February 23, 2012, the Chicago Blackhawks signed Hutton to a one-year, two-way contract for the remainder of the 2011-12 season.[4][5] On March 26, 2012 the Chicago Blackhawks called Hutton up to temporarily replace goaltender Ray Emery who was out due to an illness. On April 27, 2013 he made his first NHL start against the St. Louis Blues. Carter dressed for last two regular season games, and first five games of the playoffs. Chicago went on to win the Stanley Cup, and Hutton was given a championship ring.[6] He did not qualify to be engraved on the Stanley Cup, and was left off the team picture.

On July 5, 2013, Hutton left the Blackhawks organization and signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Nashville Predators.[7] He eventually became the Predators starting goalie for most of the 2013–14 NHL season as Pekka Rinne suffered a hip infection.[8][9]
