ST. LOUIS — It doesn’t necessarily mean Carter Hutton is good to go, but the return of Ville Husso to the AHL could be a good sign for the St. Louis goaltender.

The Blues assigned Husso to the San Antonio Rampage on Tuesday, a day after he backed up goalie Jake Allen for the second straight game. The Blues don’t play again until Thursday, by which time Hutton could be ready to return from a three-game absence with a neck injury he suffered in practice before the Blues’ California road trip.

Hutton has been skating with the team in recent days, but there has been no official word on his availability for Thursday’s home game against the Avalanche.
