David Joseph Hutchison (born May 2, 1952 in London, Ontario) is a retired former professional ice hockey player who played for the Philadelphia Blazers and Vancouver Blazers of the World Hockey Association, plus the Los Angeles Kings, Toronto Maple Leafs, Chicago Black Hawks and New Jersey Devils of the NHL. He was noted for his aggressive, hard-nosed defensive play more than his offensive prowess. In 681 career professional games he racked up 1735 penalty minutes to go along with 131 points, and often played in a defensive tandem with more flashy defensemen such as Börje Salming and Doug Wilson. He retired in 1983.
