The Blue Jackets announced Thursday that they traded goaltender Jonathan Quick to the Vegas Golden Knights for goaltender Michael Hutchinson and a seventh-round pick in 2025. Hutchinson will join the Blue Jackets before their game on Friday against the Kraken.

Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reported that the Blue Jackets will retain 50% of Quick's contract.

Hutchinson, 33, was selected with the 77th overall pick in the 2008 draft by the Boston Bruins. In 137 NHL regular-season games over 11 seasons with four teams, he's posted a 55-55-15 record with a .905SV% and a 2.79 GAA in addition to four playoff games where he has a 2-1 record along with a .910SV% and a 2.75 GAA. He signed a one-year contract for the 2022-23 season and carries a cap hit of $750k.

Quick, 37, was acquired Wednesday morning from the Los Angeles Kings along with a conditional 2023 first-round pick and a 2024 third-round pick in exchange for Vladislav Gavrikov and Joonas Korpisalo. He was a member of the Blue Jackets for approximately 28 hours. 

The NHL's trade deadline is Friday at 3 p.m. ET.
