A hard-working utility, Hutchison played 115 Reserves games during his Melbourne career, many at the start and end of his time with the club. His first full season was 1978, but he never played more than 20 games in year again. An Achilles operation at the end of 1982 kept him out until the last two games of 1983.

Hutchison played one senior game in 1984, before retiring from the senior side and captaining the Reserves to a premiership. He turned back offers from clubs in Tasmania, Queensland and Canberra to captain/coach VFA side Prahran in 1986. He led them to a Second Division premiership the next year, also playing representative games for the VFA. He remained at Prahran until the end of 1989 before joining Melbourne's match committee. He then coached the Dandenong Stingrays in the TAC Cup competition from 1993 to 1995.
