Carolina Hurricanes sign forward Brett Sutter to one-year deal

RALIEGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have signed forward Brett Sutter to a one-year, two-way contract.

The deal announced Tuesday will pay Sutter US$600,000 at the NHL level or $150,000 at the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of at least $250,000.

With 19 goals and 29 assists in 70 games in the AHL last season, the 26-year-old Sutter ranked second among the Charlotte Checkers in scoring.

Sutter has one goal and four assists in 37 career NHL games with the Calgary Flames and the Hurricanes.

In three games with Carolina last season, the Viking, Alta., native had zero points and four penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
