The San Jose Sharks will be force to bring up another backup netminder as they deal with the ongoing injury to Antero Niittymaki. In addition, John McCarthy was also recalled for the Boston contest.
Counting Niittymaki’s last game played, injuries have forced the Sharks to used five different backups in the past seven games. Others have included University of British Columbia netminder Jordan White, J.P. Anderson
, Alex Stalock
and now Hutton.
Hutton will wear number 34 for the affair. Hutton previously appeared at the NHL level as a backup in Philadelphia. He is a product of the University of Massachusetts-Lowell and is 4-3-2 with Worcester this season.
After earning his first NHL win recently, Stalock’s injury prevented him from taking the call.
