Leafs Ice Chips: Hutchinson starts again for Leafs as Andersen deals with illness
Toronto Maple Leafs
Goaltender Michael Hutchinson has been loaned to the AHL's Toronto Marlies. This was because Frederik Andersen has been activated from injured reserve. The 28-year-old Hutchinson has played in five games for the Maple Leafs, with a 2-3-0 record, a 2.64 goals-against average and .914 save percentage.
Thomas Chabot is practising with the Ottawa Senators in a regular jersey, per TSN's Brent Wallace. The 21-year-old suffered an upper-body injury after taking a hit from New York Islander Matt Martin at the end of December. The defenceman has 38 points (10 goals and 28 assists) in 38 games.
Goalie Craig Anderson is also a full participant in Monday's practice, after just skating for the first time since his concussion on Friday. The 37-year-old has missed the past 10 games, with no timetable for his exact return. In 30 starts, he holds a record of 14-13-3, with a save percentage of .905 and 3.58 goals-against average.
