Playing career[edit]

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 Boston Bruins signed Hutchinson to a three-year, entry-level contract.

On April 12, 2011, Michael was recalled by Boston to the NHL.[1] 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.[2][3]

On July 19, 2013, Hutchinson signed as a free agent to a one-year, two-way contract with the Winnipeg Jets. [4]

On April 7, 2014, Hutchinson made his NHL debut in net for the Winnipeg Jets for a 1-0 loss against the Minnesota Wild.[5]

On April 10, 2014, Hutchinson gained his first career NHL win with the Winnipeg Jets in a 2-1 shootout win over the Boston Bruins.[6]
