The 24-year-old Mazanec has played five games with Milwaukee in the American League this season, going 2-2-1 with a .900 save percentage. He’s played 27 NHL games in his career, with 25 of those coming in the tumultuous 2013-14 season when Pekka Rinne was out most of the year and the Predators couldn’t find a good solution for their porous net.
For his part, Hutton has played in two games this year, posting a .899 save percentage.
Additionally, the team has placed veteran forward Eric Nystrom on injured reserve with an upper body injury that has kept him out since being injured in a game on Halloween.
