The Calgary Flames announced Tuesday they have re-signed forward Brett Sutter to a one-year contract.

Sutter, son of Flames GM Darryl Sutter, played 10 NHL games for Calgary in 2009-10 without scoring a point. He had 9 goals, 24 points and 69 penalty minutes in 66 games with Abbotsford, Calgary's AHL affiliate, then led the Heat in playoff scoring with 11 points (4 goals, 7 assists) in 13 games.

Sutter, chosen in the sixth round (No. 179) in the 2005 Entry Draft, scored his only NHL goal during a four-game call-up with the Flames during the 2008-09 season.

He is the eighth member of his family to play in the NHL, a group that includes his father, five uncles and a cousin, Brandon Sutter of the Carolina Hurricanes.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
