Quinn Hutson, the older brother of Montreal Canadiens prospect Lane Hutson, is expected to sign a deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs, who have shown the most interest in him this summer.

It was announced at the end of May, but Quinn Hutson was one of many NCAA players who had been invited to NHL Development Camps. Hutson who played for Boston University, chose the Toronto Maple Leafs and has been working with the Leafs' development staff since earlier this week.
As Kyle Cushman of The Score points out, the 22-year-old Barrington, Illinois, native is looking to graduate early and turn pro at the end of his junior season.
For the Terriers, Hutson played alongside his brother and Montreal Canadiens' top prospect, Lane Hutson. Quinn scored 18 goals and 36 points in 40 games played this season, which was an improvement from the 15 goals and 28 points in 39 games he tallied in 2022-23. He stands in at 5'11 and 171 pounds, is a right-handed shot, and is slated as a right-winger.
Hutson's 18 goals were good for second on the team as he trailed Hobey Baker Award winner Macklin Celebrini who scored 32 goals. His 36 points were also good for third best on the club as he trailed just Celebrini and his brother Lane.
Hutson is the oldest of four brothers, all of whom play hockey. Lane is the second oldest and was drafted in the first round of the 2022 NHL Entry Draft by Montreal, Cole was just drafted in the 2nd round of this year's draft by Washington, and the youngest is Lars who is 15-years-old.
When asked about how they played together growing up and how things have changed since, Quinn admits that his younger brothers have come a long way and even superseded him:
"The oldest and the youngest went together and the middle two went together. I was a little older so it made it a little more even, I was stronger and now it's a little less even but we find a way to make it even sometimes."
If Quinn can crack the Maple Leafs roster, it will add another wrinkle into the rivalry between the Leafs and the Canadiens with Lane expected to be play a big part in the Habs' future moving forward.
