After making his NHL debut with the Preadatos in the 2003–04 season, Hutchinson was traded by the Predators to the Carolina Hurricanes for a 3rd round pick on July 25, 2005.[1] Hutchinson won the Stanley Cup in 2006 playing with the Carolina Hurricanes appearing in 36 regular season games.

On July 17, 2007, Hutchinson was traded by the Hurricanes along with Joe Barnes and a 3rd round draft pick in 2008 to the New York Rangers in exchange for Matt Cullen.[2] Although he never played a game for the Rangers, Andrew had a superb season in the AHL serving as the Hartford Wolfpack's captain.

On April 10, 2008 Hutchinson won the Eddie Shore Award as the AHL's top defenseman for the 2007–08 season.

On July 9, 2008, Hutchinson signed a two-year deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.[3] He started the 2008–09 season in the AHL playing for Norfolk Admirals. In 20 games Hutch tallied 1 goal and 13 assists with the Admirals. On November 27, 2008, Hutchinson was called up to the Lightning and played in only two games before he was dealt to the Dallas Stars for Lauri Tukonen on November 30, 2008.[4][5]

On July 7, 2010, Hutchinson signed as a free agent to a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.[6]
