Lukas Sutter will re-enter the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

The Jets didn't sign him to retain his rights. "Lukas is a fine young hockey player," said Winnipeg GM Kevin Cheveldayoff. "Unfortunately, he ran into some injuries and things like that and we wish him all the best." Sutter was the 39th overall pick in 2012. He tallied 10 goals and 23 points in 45 games with Red Deer of the WHL this past season. Sutter had 59 points and 165 penalty minutes in 2011-12 with Saskatoon.

Lukas Sutter feels he's ready to begin his professional career after three full seasons of play in the WHL.

"I want to earn a spot in pro hockey," he said. "I don't want to go back and play junior. Obviously going back to junior isn't the worst thing that can happen to me, but my goal is to play pro hockey. Any young hockey player's goal is to play at the highest level possible and that's pro hockey for me. That goal does not change." He's been playing on a line with Mark Scheifele and Scott Kosmachuk during Winnipeg's rookie tournament, so that's a good way to get noticed. Sutter produced 24 points and 168 penalty minutes in 72 games last year with the Saskatoon Blades.

Lukas Sutter has not had a good start to his WHL season.

That is even putting mildly. The Jets took the physical forward 39th overall in the 2012 draft. He had 179 and 165 penalty minutes the past two seasons, but also saw his offensive game grow with 59 points in 2011-12. Now, he has three points in 17 games and is a minus-12 rating. He wasn't included on the Subway Super Series roster and his time is running out to make a case to be included on Team Canada's tryout camp for the world junior championships.

Lukas Sutter is the latest member of the family to be drafted by an NHL club.

Lukas, whose uncles include Kings coach Darryl Sutter and former Flames coach Brent Sutter, was taken with the 39th overall pick by the Winnipeg Jets. His father is Rich Sutter, who had 315 points in 874 career NHL games. As a member of the Sutter family, Lukas has had no storage of people to seek advice from. "It doesn't matter who you go to. Whether it's Dad or uncle Ronnie, or uncle Brent," said Lukas. "You're going to get the same thing from each and every one of them. They know how to play the game, they know what they're talking about it. It's definitely invaluable to have that support system."
