Yet another member of the Sutter family has joined the National Hockey League. Lukas Sutter, son of Rich Sutter, comes from a long list of hockey professionals. Central Scouting reports had Sutter ranked at 39th overall, which was bang on. Luckily for the Winnipeg Jets, young Sutter was available and up for grabs.
"It's an honour and it's something that we take a lot of pride in," said Sutter on being the newest Sutter to join the league. ďThe last name is obviously a legacy in the game of hockey and itís something that you want to live up to and something that I really pride myself on.
"Whenever you need a piece of advice, it doesn't matter who you go to whether it's dad or whether it's uncle Ronnie, you're going to get the same thing from each and every one of them. They know how to play the game and they know what they're talking about. It's definitely invaluable to have that support system."
