Goalie Hutton knows the drill

If you come to Predators practices early, you’ll see a goaltender shifting his weight around the crease with a medicine ball in his bare hands under the watchful eye of goaltending coach Mitch Korn.

Hutton shines after being thrust into starting role

The Nashville Predators lost to the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday due, in part, to the fact they fired just 16 shots on goal. Tonight, it took 9:12 to get their first one but, thanks to Carter Hutton, the Preds remained in the game. Starting goaltender Pekka Rinne was shelved for at least a month earlier in the day, giving Hutton his second start of the season (and third of his NHL...

Patten’s Plus-Minus: Winnipeg Jets at Nashville Predators

The best and worst from Nashville’s 3-2 overtime win over the Winnipeg Jets at Bridgestone Arena on Thursday night. Plus Carter Hutton has appeared in 3 games for the Predators, earning a 2-0 average with an absurdly low 1.37 GAA and an absurdly high .959 save percentage.

With Pekka Rinne out, Predators beat Jets 3-2 in overtime

Out of all Nashville’s offseason surgeries Pekka Rinne’s hip had to be the one with complications. Colin Wilson’s two shoulders? Fine. Paul Gaustad’s shoulder? A-OK. Gabriel Bourque’s knee? It has looked good so far. Instead it was arguably the Predators’ most important player who will miss at least a month. Rinne’s May hip arthroscopy was Nashville’s most delicate...
