Penguins Recall Hutchinson

News: The Penguins recalled Hutchinson from the AHL on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Hutchinson began the year in the AHL despite a strong preseason. However, with both Brooks Orpik and Zbynek Michalek nursing injuries, the Pens needed another healthy blue-line body. When the other two return to health, Hutchinson may get sent back down.

Hutchinson Waived by Pens on Tuesday

News: The Pens waived Hutchinson on Tuesday, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

A. Hutchinson pops up with goal

News: Stars D Andrew Hutchinson scored his second goal of the season Monday in a loss to the Coyotes.
Analysis: Hutchinson has pretty much been a career minor leaguer and hasn't done much in 114 NHL games. He is nothing more than roster depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.

Andrew Hutchinson

Hutchinson accrues second point

News: Stars D Andrew Hutchinson tallied an assist and finished at plus-1 in 6:31 of ice time Monday against the Red Wings. It was just his second point of the season and first since Dec. 23.
Analysis: Hutchinson has pretty much been a career minor leaguer and hasn't done much in 114 NHL games. He is nothing more than roster depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.

Hutchinson dealt to Dallas

News: The Dallas Stars acquired defenseman Andrew Hutchinson from the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday, trading away the rights to winger Lauri Tukonen, who plays in Europe.
Analysis: Hutchinson has appeared in 97 career games with Nashville, Carolina and Tampa Bay. He has 10 goals and 23 assists. He is scoreless in two appearances with Tampa Bay this season. Hutchinson has a goal and 13 assists in 20 games this season with the Norfolk Admirals of the AHL. He is expected to join the Stars for their upcoming road trip to Calgary and Edmonton, beginning Tuesday. Still, Hutchinson has minimal Fantasy appeal at this time.

Andrew Hutchinson

Hutchinson clears recall waivers

News: The St. Pete Times reports that Bruins D Andrew Hutchinson cleared recall waivers and is back up with the Bruins.
Analysis: Hutchinson is just organizational depth and can be ignored in all formats.

Andrew Hutchinson

Lightning put Hutchinson on waivers

News: The St. Pete Times reports that Lightning D Andrew Hutchinson has been placed on waivers.
Analysis: Hutchinson played in 67 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL) last season while serving as the team's captain.

He ranked second on the team in assists (46), plus/minus (28) and power-play goals, third in points and was tied for fifth in goals. He led all AHL defensemen in points and assists, and also ranked third in goals. Hutchinson might get time with the Lightning in 2008-09 if he clears waivers, but can be ignored until further notice.

Andrew Hutchinson

D Hutchinson traded to Rangers

News: The Carolina Hurricanes apparently figured that no one can replace Matt Cullen in their lineup quite like, well, Matt Cullen. After spending last season looking for someone to fill the position Cullen made his own during their Stanley Cup title run, the Hurricanes re-acquired him from the New York Rangers on Tuesday for defenseman Andrew Hutchinson, a prospect and a draft pick.
Analysis: The prospect is forward Joe Barnes and the draft selection is a third-round pick in the 2008 draft to the Rangers. Hutchinson is a solid prospect, but only worth using in the deepest of Fantasy leagues at this point.

Andrew Hutchinson

Hutchinson adds some assists

News: Hurricanes D Andrew Hutchinson has recorded at least one assist in three of the last four games and has a total of five assists during that stretch.
Analysis: Hutchinson is sure to see his Fantasy value tumble once Frantisek Kaberle (shoulder surgery) is able to return, but he could be used as a low-end Fantasy defender in the meantime.

Andrew Hutchinson

D Andrew Hutchinson fills in

News: Hutchinson filled in during Saturday's game against the Lightning for the injured Niclas Wallin (lower body injury).

Andrew Hutchinson

D Hutchinson blanked again

News: Andrew Hutchinson was scoreless with an even rating and one shot on goal in 12:28 of ice time in Tuesday's shootout loss at New Jersey.

Andrew Hutchinson, D, PIT

Andrew Hutchinson

Hutchinson scores against Florida

News: D Andrew Hutchinson made his season debut against Florida Wednesday and he scored Carolina's third goal.
Analysis: Hutchinson hadn't scored a goal since Jan. 13 against Nashville, though injuries disturbed the latter part of his 2005-06 season. Don't get overly excited over this offensive display until he proves he can do it consistently.

10/5/2006

Andrew Hutchinson, D, PIT

Andrew Hutchinson

Babchuk, A. Hutchinson sit Wed.

News: Carolina's healthy scratches for Wednesday's opener were defensemen Anton Babchuk and Andrew Hutchinson.

Andrew Hutchinson, D, PIT

Andrew Hutchinson

Hutchinson back for 'Canes

News: Andrew Hutchinson (hernia surgery) has gone scoreless in his first two games since returning from hernia surgery which sidelined him since Jan. 31.

2/3/2006

Andrew Hutchinson, D, PIT

Andrew Hutchinson

Ward to replace Hutchinson

News: The Charlotte Observer reports that Ward (hernia surgery) was activated from injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: Ward is expected to play Friday at New Jersey. He'll take Andrew Hutchinson's (wrist) spot on the roster. He's not worth owning in Fantasy play however.

2/2/2006

Andrew Hutchinson, D, PIT

Andrew Hutchinson

Hutchinson has wrist surgery

News: Andrew Hutchinson had wrist surgery on Thursday and he will be sidelined at least two months.
Analysis: Hutchinson posted 10 points in 32 games, so this is not a huge loss for Fantasy owners. He might be able to return for the final few scoring periods of the regular season.

Andrew Hutchinson, D, PIT

Andrew Hutchinson

Hutchinson meets with specialist

News: The Raleigh News & Observer reports Andrew Hutchinson (arm) has returned to North Carolina to meet with a specialist after an MRI on his arm ws inconclusive.

Andrew Hutchinson, D, PIT

Andrew Hutchinson

Hutchinson hit hard Tuesday

News: The Charlotte Observer reports that Andrew Hutchinson (arm) left Tuesday's game at Montreal after being hit hard in the first period. He did not return and he will need further examination.
Analysis: Hutchinson hasn't registered a point since he scored a goal Jan. 13 -- 10 games ago.

12/21/2005

Andrew Hutchinson, D, PIT

Andrew Hutchinson

Hutchinson scores first with Canes

News: Hurricanes D Andrew Hutchinson scored in the first period, his first goal of the season.
Analysis: Hutchinson also scored his first overall with Carolina after coming over from Nashville. He doesn't see enough ice time to be useful from a Fantasy perspective however. He registered five assists earlier this month, but hasn't done much until Tuesday.

12/4/2005

Andrew Hutchinson, D, PIT

Andrew Hutchinson

Hutchinson picks up assist

News: Andrew Hutchinson picked up an assist in 19:51 of ice time in Saturday's game at Phoenix.
Analysis: Hutchinson has five assists over his past five games, as he has seen his playing time pick up dramatically since playing sporadically early on. He still has only minimal Fantasy appeal in most leagues.

Andrew Hutchinson

Carolina acquires A. Hutchinson

News: The Predators traded Andrew Hutchinson to the Hurricanes on Saturday for a third-round pick in the 2005 NHL entry draft.

7/26/2004

Andrew Hutchinson, D, PIT

Andrew Hutchinson

Hutchinson back with Nashville

News: Andrew Hutchinson re-signed with the Nashville Predators on Monday.
Analysis: Hutchinson posted eight points in 18 games with the Predators in 2003-04. He will likely spend most of the season with the club's AHL affiliate in Milwaukee.
