Maple Leafs Acquire Goaltender Carter Hutton From Coyotes


February 21, 2022

According to the Toronto Maple Leafs Official Twitter, the team has acquired goaltender Carter Hutton from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for future considerations.

Hutton, who signed a one-year $750,000 deal with Arizona in the offseason, has been sidelined since October 25 with a lower-body injury. He was placed on waivers Sunday by the club before ultimately going unclaimed.

The 36-year-old has appeared in 234 NHL games, which includes stints with the Nashville Predators, St. Louis Blues, Buffalo Sabres, and the Coyotes.

Hutton’s best season came in 2017-18 with the Blues, where he compiled a 17-7-3 record to go along with a 2.09 goals-against average, a .931 save percentage, and four shutouts in 32 appearances (26 starts).

He is expected to serve mainly as a depth option behind fellow Leafs’ goaltenders Jack Campbell and Petr Mrazek.

Meanwhile, Toronto dropped Monday night’s matchup to the Montreal Canadiens and will take on the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday evening.
