Daly stormed to the top of the SPFL League One scoring charts with a hat-trick in the 4-0 win over East Fife at New Bayview on Saturday.
But Hutton, who continued his comeback from injury when he came on in the second half in Methil, revealed the striker is making his influence felt off the park too.
The midfielder said: "All the older boys have been brilliant for us. Big Jon has come in and settled down perfectly.
"He is always talking to you and trying to help you out. He made a massive contribution at the weekend and he has done all season.
"But in training as well he has a great attitude and it rubs off on you. When he was at United last season he took us apart when we played them.
"He is doing the same to opposition teams now that he is here. He is a top professional and has been a great signing for us.
"All of the new boys have come in and done really well. The boys from last year are all waiting to get in."
Meanwhile, Hutton, who injured his ankle ligaments in pre-season, has vowed to keep working and try to force his way back into Ally McCoist's plans. He said: "I was doing well when I got the injury so I was quite annoyed. The boys who have come in while I have been out are unbeaten in the league.
"It is harsh as I was playing well, but that is football for you. I just need to wait for my chance and when it finally comes along I must make sure that I take it."
