Michael Hutchinson is happy to be back in Toronto after signing a two-year/two-way contract last week.
Hutchinson grew up about an hour north of Toronto and whether he is playing for the Maple Leafs, or Toronto's AHL team the Marlies, he will be based at home once again. “I’ll do whatever the organization needs,” insisted Hutchinson on a Monday Zoom call with reporters. “(Colorado) learned in a bubble situation how important goaltending depth was. I’ve enjoyed my time with the Marlies any time I was sent down, which was a huge factor in signing here. The Leafs were always on my radar, even after I got traded. My wife and I were talking about an ideal situation. Pressure and stress take away from the enjoyment of hockey when you’re worried about family. No one knows what the landscape is going to look like this year (delayed by COVID-19) or the year after. Seeing how quickly all the seats at the goalie table were filled up, teams were not taking the patient approach.” Hutchinson played in the playoffs for Colorado as the Avs lost both Philipp Grubauer and Pavel Francouz and stole a couple of games for Colorado but couldn't hold on in Game 7 as the Avs lost 5-4 to Dallas in overtime. He should start the season with the Marlies as he is third or fourth on the Toronto depth chart at this time. Nov 03 8:38 am (EST)
