Michael Hutchinson (born March 2, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender. He is currently playing with the St. John's IceCaps of the AHL. Hutchinson was selected by the Boston Bruins in the 3rd round (77th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He has spent most of his time with the ECHL's Reading Royals and the AHL's Providence Bruins.
Hutchinson grew up playing minor hockey for the Barrie Icemen (now Jr. Colts) of the OMHA's Eastern AAA League. He was a member of the 1990 Ontario Blues summer hockey team that featured other notable graduates in Steven Stamkos, John Tavares, Alex Pietrangelo, Michael Del Zotto, Stefan Della Rovere, Cody Hodgson and Cameron Gaunce.
Hutchinson was selected in the 4th round (69th overall) of the 2006 OHL Priority Selection by his hometown Barrie Colts. After three years in Barrie, Hutchinson was dealt in the summer of 2009 to the London Knights where he finished his junior career.
On March 30, 2010, the Bruins signed Hutchinson to a three-year, entry-level contract.
On April 12, 2011, Michael was recalled by Boston to the NHL. On March 3, 2012, Hutchinson was recalled by Boston to be backup goaltender because of an injury to Tuukka Rask, just one day after his 22nd birthday.
On September 15th, 2013, Hutchinson played in his first game as a Winnipeg Jet becoming the third star in a pre-season exhibition 3 - 1 loss against the Ottawa Senators.
