Brett Sutter isn't making a big deal out of the fact that being with the Kings is providing him with an opportunity to play for his father.
Los Angeles acquired Sutter from Minnesota back in February, but he spent the rest of the 2015-16 campaign in the minors. Due to that, Monday's preseason game was the first time that Brett played for his father, Kings head coach Darryl Sutter, since the fourth grade. Still, that wasn't an emotional experience for Brett. "You know, I think the thing that makes it unique and cool is that there aren’t any of those moments," the younger Sutter said. "When I get to the rink, he’s giving me [grief] just like he is the other 40 guys here, and treating me just like every other player, and I think that’s kind of the coolest part. There’s that separation of when you leave the rink we’re family, but when you get here, it’s time to go to work, and I think that’s the part I respect the most about the whole thing. And the way the guys have treated the situation right from day one last year – I think that’s been the coolest thing. It’s been all business once we’re at the rink." Fri, Sep 30, 2016 10:57:00 AM
