The Melfort Mustangs have acquired 2003-born forward Aidyn Hutchinson from the Fort McMurray Oil Barons to complete a trade from January 10, 2022.
“Aidyn will be an impact player in our lineup right from day one. His veteran presence and experience will be huge assets in our dressing room,” said Mustangs Head Coach and General Manager Trevor Blevins. “Furthermore, his skill and compete level will ensure he is an elite player in our league.”
In his first season of Junior ‘A’ hockey, Hutchinson score four goals and added nine assists for the Oil Barons in 42 regular season games. The St. Albert, Alta. product would also add four assists in 10 playoff games this year.
Hutchinson would also get a taste of Junior hockey in 2020/2021 as he played five games for the Oil Barons during the COVID-shortened season, but did not get on the scoresheet. The 6’1”, 174 lbs forward played in five games for the St. Albert Raiders U18 AAA squad in 2020/2021 as well, notching eight assists.
Back in 2019/2020, Hutchinson was seventh in U18 AA league scoring as he tallied 57 points in 30 games with the St. Albert Steel. That was also good for second on his team.
