Emery Out With Lower Body Injury; Blackhawks Recall Hutton
(CBS) Blackhawks goalie Ray Emery has been ruled out for Friday’s game against the Predators with a lower body injury.
Head coach Joel Quenneville said Emery is considered “day-to-day.”
In response, the Blackhawks have recalled goaltender Carter Hutton from the Rockford IceHogs.
The 27-year-old Hutton has posted a 26-22-1 record with two shutouts, a 2.72 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage in 51 games this season with Rockford.
Hutton, a Thunder Bay, Ontario, native, has earned a 60-44-8 record with seven shutouts, a 2.64 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage in 120 career AHL games over four seasons with Adirondack, Worcester and Rockford from 2009 to 2013.
Hutton was signed by the Blackhawks as a free agent on Feb. 24, 2012.
