Florida’s season came to an end Saturday with a 5-3 loss to Kalamazoo. The K-Wings won the series three games to one. The ‘Blades fought back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game 3-3 midway through the third period, but Kalamazoo scored the game winner less than two minutes later then added an empty net goal. Hutchings’ first pro season comes to an end with a solid postseason showing where he finished second on the team in points. The former Barrie Colt will go into next year hoping to earn a spot on AHL Norfolk’s roster.
