The Winnipeg Jets wrapped up yet another disappointing season this week, missing the playoffs for the third straight year.
The 24-year-old rookie Jets goalie scratched another item off his professional hockey bucket list Thursday night, beating the league’s best Boston Bruins 2-1 in a shootout to earn his first-ever NHL victory between the pipes.
The Winnipeg Jets welcome the Boston Bruins to town Thursday night in the final game of the season at the MTS Centre.
Rookie goalie Michael Hutchinson made 16 saves in the game and finished with a 1.03 goals-against-average, and .943 save percentage in the debut. Not bad for a guy who started the year in the East Coast Hockey League.
