Watch Here: ‘Hutch’ Pitches A Shutout As Maple Leafs Thump The Canucks

Shug McSween Jan 6, 2019

Michael Hutchinson picked up his first shutout since 2016 and it could not have come at a better time. The Barrie, ONT native has been thrown into the fire with the Maple Leafs current goaltending injuries and Saturday night he capitalized on his opportunity.


The Maple Leafs were all over the Canucks from the jump. Trevor Moore picked up his first career NHL goal with a beauty solo effort where he dazzled the crowd with his speed. Auston Matthews and John Tavares both chipped in with a goal as both superstars have been everything the team could have dreamed of this season.

It’s a great year to be a Leafs fan and last night was one of those nights where the game was never in doubt. It helped that the Canucks were without their Swedish Prince ‘Pettey”, but the Leafs were without their number one goalie.

No number one goalie, no problem, Hutch was Clutch.
