TSN links defenseman Ben Hutton to the Wings

This is a bit interesting. Despite the fact that the Red Wings’ blueline is incredibly crowded, TSN’s latest free agent updates link free agent defenseman Ben Hutton to Detroit, at least tangentially:

Ben Hutton
Position: LD
Age: 26
Last Year: 69 GP, 5 goals, 15 assists, 20 points, 22:21 TOI
Last Year’s Cap Hit: $2.8 million

Scoop: Hutton was ranked No. 13 on TSN’s Top 50 in July, so it’s a bit of a surprise he’s lingered this long, particularly after the Canucks declined to extend him a qualifying offer for $2.8 million. Hutton has received multiple offers and he’s currently weighing all of his options, which reportedly include the Kings, Rangers, Red Wings and Wild.

  1. Could be a sign that one of Green, Daley, or Ericsson are going on IR. Green is the wildcard here. Career-ending?
