NHL: Detroit Red Wings at Florida Panthers Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

It a bit of a surprising move the Florida Panthers announced today that the club has acquired a 2020 fifth-round draft pick from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for goaltender Michael Hutchinson.

Hutchinson, 28, appeared in four games with Florida owning a 1-1-2 record, 4.18 goals against average and .839 save percentage. He played in eight games with Florida’s American Hockey League Affiliate, the Springfield Thunderbirds, posting a 2-3-2 record, 3.33 goals against average and .906 save percentage.
