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

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
