Hutton’s Age is Ideal for His Role

Hutton’s Age is Ideal for His Role

While the 32 year old goalie does have something to prove, his age fits perfectly with his role as Ullmark continues to grow into a starter. Gone are the days of furious debates regarding Robin Lehner’s usefulness to the Buffalo Sabres. Lehner was not given an offer to return this coming season and on July 1st, after a few weeks of speculation, Carter Hutton officially signed with the Sabres for three years at a $2.75 million AAV. This amount was lower than many were expecting, and it was reported that Hutton left money on the table to come to Buffalo. The 32-year-old is being brought in...

Sabres present special opportunity to goalie Carter Hutton

BUFFALO – A simple factor contributed to Carter Hutton quietly morphing into one of the NHL’s best goalies last season. Instead of relegating the veteran to backup duty again, the St. Louis Blues rewarded his splendid play, giving him extra action. In his previous five full NHL seasons, Hutton had always been labeled the No. 2 goalie. After averaging only 21 appearances over the previous three years, he played 32 games in 2017-18, stealing playing ...

Blues sign Chad Johnson to one-year deal

This is more than likely a stopgap decision. With it being known that Carter Hutton was heading to the Buffalo Sabres, one of the questions heading into today was regarding who the Blues’ back-up goalie was going to be. Would they be bringing up Jordan Binnington? Is it time for Ville Husso to make an appearance, or will he need a bit more seasoning? And, most importantly, who can the Blues use who won’t be too much of a threat to Jake Allen’s psyche? In what will be probably today’s last free agent signing for the Blues, the answer to that question’s now clear. It’s former...
