Brent Sutter was the highest scoring of the six Sutter brothers to play in the NHL and the only one to score at least 100 points in one season. He also won the Stanley Cup in each of his first two full NHL seasons.
The New York Islanders selected Sutter in the first round (No. 17) of the 1980 NHL Draft, which came a few weeks after they won the Cup for what turned out to be the first of four consecutive seasons. They returned him to Lethbridge of the Western Hockey League for the 1980-81 season, though he got a taste of the NHL during a three-game call-up after older brother Duane Sutter was injured. Brent had an assist against the Calgary Flames in his NHL debut Feb. 25, 1981 and scored goals in each of his next two games.
