Frederik Andersen is out at least day-to-day for the Toronto Maple Leafs with a neck injury he suffered on Monday. Michael Hutchinson has been given the task of essentially being the first and last line of defense for the Leafs for the next little bit.
Sheldon Keefe on Michael Hutchinson: "He has a chance to be the starter right now. We've got confidence in him & more importantly we have confidence in ourselves as a team to just go out & play"— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) February 5, 2020
Hutch has his hometown goalie coach in the building as his mentor for the Leafs mentor trip. Good choice.
