Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Michael Hutchinson
Michael Hutchinson was born March 2, 1990 in Barrie, Ontario. As a product of the OHLís Barrie Colts organization, the goaltender was drafted in the third round, 77th overall, by the Boston Bruins in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Prior to making the jump to professional hockey, Hutchinson was traded to the London Knights after spending three seasons with the Barrie Colts. In London, he would help lead his team to the Western Conference final in the 2009-10 season where they would fall to the Kitchener Rangers in seven games.

As part of the Bruins organization, Hutchinson would bounce around between their AHL affiliate, Providence Bruins, and their ECHL affiliate, Reading Royals, for three seasons. He did make an appearance with the Bruins as a backup goalie during the 2012 season, but failed to get into any action.

On July 19, 2013 Hutchinson would sign a one year contract with the Winnipeg Jets. Though he would begin his time with the organization at the ECHL level with the Ontario Reign, he would quickly climb up the ranks with his superior play. He would be called up to the AHLís St. Johnís IceCaps as an injury replacement during the 2013-14 season where his 17-5-1 record made it impossible to be sent back down.

The Jets decided to reward Hutchinson by having him make his NHL debut on April 7, 2014 in a 1-0 loss to the Minnesota Wild. Hutchinson would get his first career win three days later when he helped beat his former team, the Boston Bruins, 2-1 in a shootout. After the NHL season, he was returned to the IceCaps where he would help lead the team to their first appearance in the Calder Cup Finals where they would eventually fall to the Texas Stars in five games.

During the 2014-15 season, Hutchinson would compete against Ondrej Pavelec for the starting job for the Winnipeg Jets. In the end, he would remain with the Jets the full year while splitting the net with Pavelec. His 21-10-5 record during the 2014-15 season would help the Jets make the playoffs for the first time since the team moved to Winnipeg.
