Well, I’ll keep it short.
The CH’s second-round pick (62nd overall) is already considered a steal, so dominant was he at every level he played at this season, especially in the NCAA, where he broke records with 48 points (15 goals and 33 assists) in 39 games.
Remember, he’s a defender.
In short, Hutson has established himself as one of the Montreal Canadiens’ best prospects, if not the best.
However, the only thing that could slow down Hutson’s momentum, and that sometimes lowers the expectations of some fans and analysts, is his small size and weight.
Clearly not enough to become a future NHL player, but we knew he’d keep getting bigger and heavier.
Anyway, here we are a little over a year later, and we now have new numbers for Hutson, while he’s at Team USA’s summer camp, where he’s already dominating.
That’s huge, especially for a player like Hutson, who has always been considered too small for the NHL.
If we compare him with Quinn Hughes, a player of similar size to Hutson with a similar style of play, there’s only a five-pound difference.
Hughes weighs 180 pounds and is 5’10”.
We’ll just have to pray that Hutson reaches his full potential.
