Hopefully news comes shortly that Biega or Pedan is being called up to get some games. Yannick Weber needs to sit until he can be added to whatever trade Benning has up his sleeve.

No chance Weber sits if Hutton can't play. If anything, he will get more minutes. Even if Pedan or Biega come up, they aren't getting in ahead of Weber.

It would be unreasonable for anyone to expect Hutton to last the entire season without fatigue/injury unfortunately.  Spending three years playing college hockey lets you get a lot of practice time in but, doesn't get you prepared whatsoever for the season-long grind that is the NHL schedule.  This is one of the advantages of the CHL imo - they play an NHL style schedule so these players coming out of Jr have been there/done that.  In fact, one could say that the CHL schedule (in the WHL anyway) is worse than the NHL schedule because of the busses and second-class hotel/meals they are constantly enduring - they aint getting first-class airfare and 5star hotels/restaurants in Jr.
