Amateur[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 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.

Professional[edit]

On March 30, 2010, the Boston Bruins signed Hutchinson to a three-year, entry-level contract. On April 12, 2011, he 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] He was assigned to the Jets secondary affiliate, the Ontario Reign of the ECHL to begin the 2013–14 season. Hutchinson posted 22-4-2 record with the Reign, in earning a promotion to AHL affiliate, the St. John's IceCaps. With the IceCaps starting goaltender Edward Pasquale suffering season ending injury, Hutchinson posted a 15-5 record, before earning a recall to the Winnipeg Jets on March 15, 2014.

Hutchinson made his NHL debut, in a 1-0 loss against the Minnesota Wild on April 7, 2014.[5] He played the final two games of the season with the Jets, claiming his first career NHL win with the Winnipeg Jets in a 2-1 shootout win over the Boston Bruins on April 10, 2014.[6] He was returned to the IceCaps for the 2014 AHL playoffs, and was instrumental in helping St. John's reach the Calder Cup finals for the first time in franchise history. On July 2, 2014, the Jets signed Hutchinson to a two-year contract.[7] Hutchinson played in the 2014–15 NHL season as the backup to Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec. Hutchinson would finish the season, with a 21-10-5 record.

On June 21, 2016, Hutchinson signed a two-year contract extension with the Jets.[8]
