Sutter spent seven years in the Windy City when his father Brent Sutter played for the Blackhawks in the 1990s.
"I went to one Bears game and it was my first football game; I didn't think too much of it at the time but now looking back, it has changed so much," Brandon Sutter said Friday. "I had some great times in Chicago. I remember my dad playing and seeing the transition of the downtown area. We lived in the suburbs. I know my mom is very excited to be back, and it's great to see some old friends I haven't seen in a while."
Sutter, who turned 25 on Valentine's Day, was asked if he remembered Chicago Stadium, where the Blackhawks played their home games prior to United Center.
"Yeah, I remember I had to put cotton balls in my ears for the national anthem all the time," he said with a smile.
