Maple Leafs acquire Hutton from Coyotes, but he won't leave Arizona

In case you missed it, the Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Arizona Coyotes netminder Carter Hutton for future considerations.

From Morgan:

He's staying in Arizona. Per a league source, the Maple Leafs will loan Hutton back to the Tucson but still have the insurance of an extra goalie in their system.

He'll practice and skate with the Roadrunners each week, trying to get his game and injured ankle back in order, but he will continue living in the Valley with his wife and two kids. AHL rights are different than NHL rights so the Leafs can agree to loan him to the Roadrunners. Per a source, Hutton consented to the deal with the agreement that he would not be separated from his family by going to another city.
