Dutton was discharged from the service in 1919 and upon returning home to Winnipeg he strengthened his leg by playing in seven local hockey leagues during the 1919-20 season.
Dutton was promised by the league's Board of Governors that after the war he would be given an NHL franchise to re-establish hockey in Brooklyn.
Dutton was also a trustee for the Stanley Cup though he did not attend an NHL game from the time he left the presidency until he performed the official face-off prior to the Calgary Flames' first home game on October 9, 1980.
