The move comes after Hutchinson gave up five goals against the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.
In five starts this season Hutchinson has a 0-4-1 record with a 4.44 goals-against average and .879 save percentage.
The Maple Leafs haven’t announced a replacement backup goalie yet, but Kasimir Kaskisuo will likely be called up from the Toronto Marlies before the Maple Leafs’ next game.
Kaskisuo, 26, has a 6-1-1 record in the AHL this season with a 2.13 goals-against average and .928 save percentage.
The Maple Leafs next play Wednesday on the road against the New York Islanders.
