Canadian: news about Lane Hutson


You won't be seeing Lane Hutson in a Montreal Canadiens game tomorrow. 

The promising offensive defenseman will be back with the Boston University Terriers for the 2023-24 season, Sportsnet pundit Elliotte Friedman said Saturday. 

Despite his historic rookie season in the NCAA, it's no surprise that Hutson is waiting for another campaign before making the jump to the pros. With a small frame of 5'10″ and 161 lbs, the American guard will have the chance to gain muscle and refine his defensive game.

The Terriers should have a formidable team next season . In addition to being able to count on the return of Hutson, they will welcome Macklin Celebrini to their ranks. The 16-year-old forward is considered one of the top five prospects eligible for the 2024 draft.

Hutson has 48 points in 39 games this season, a high among NCAA defensemen. He was also one of 10 candidates for the Hobey-Baker Trophy, which was ultimately won by Adam Fantilli.
