Ben Hutton News
Hutton's mumps test came back negative; cleared to play on Tuesday.
Hutton missed Saturday’s game with what was believed to be mumps, but he was misdiagnosed. Hutton is feeling better and will suit up tonight vs. the Red Wings. He comes into Tuesday with four goals and 11 assists (15 points) in 50 games this season.
Hutton (hand) will return to the Canucks lineup on Tuesday.
Hutton has been sidelined by a fracture in his hand since January 6th, but will be back in tonight in Nashville. Hutton has collected 11 points (4G / 7A) in 41 games so far this season. Philip Larsen will be the healthy scratch with Hutton returning.
Hutton will miss 3-6 weeks with a small fracture in his hand.
Hutton will miss his fifth consecutive game on Tuesday and will miss at least three weeks. With Hutton out until at least early-February, look for Alex Biega to remain in the lineup going forward.
Hutton is out indefinitely with an upper-body injury.
Hutton was held out of Saturday’s game in Calgary and head coach Willie Desjardins said that Hutton will be “out for a bit.” The Canucks had to play with five defenseman on Saturday, so expect them to recalled someone before Tuesday’s game.
