Flames re-sign Brett Sutter

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.
Quote of the Day

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun..
