Observations

March 2020 – Coming back in late November Sutter did not get hurt for the remainder of Hershey’s season before it was cancelled and that is a positive. The negative was that he routinely was scratched and tended to only play one out of every three AHL games to finish the season, and in that he was routinely in the bottom six. He finished with four points, 13 shots, no PIMs in 25 games. He is a good two-way player but if he wants a shot at the NHL he will need to do a lot more. Pat Quinn

 

December 2019 – Sutter was finally healthy enough to be able to play in the AHL so the Capitals sent him to the Bears mid November. He has so far only played in four games, where he has registered an assist, but he is only seeing time on the bottom two lines. The Bears roster is full of AHL vets as the young players rarely get a lot of ice time, unfortunately for the Bears no one is also scoring. It is a tough time to gauge Bears prospects statistically. In viewings of Sutter he is fine for a grinder, but I still have no idea how or what he offensive ceiling can be outside of “bottom line NHL player”. Pat Quinn

 

September 2019 – Sutter was injured during the first game of the 2019 Prospect Showcase and has been rehabbing his injury to start the season. He will go down to Hershey when he is healthy enough to play. It is tough to see injuries still follow Sutter in to the next stage of his career. Pat Quinn

 

June 2019 – It is unknown how Sutter’s offensive game will pan out in the AHL when it never really popped out in the WHL. He is a smart, tough, two-way Sutter style player but can he be one that can play in the top six in the NHL. The answer is likely no but he will be one to monitor to see if he can pan out. Pat Quinn

 

May 2019 – Sutter, in his fourth WHL season, managed to finally get over a point per game pace. The problem was that it was in 38 games as Sutter dealt with injury issues, missing 37 straight games, and only managed to get in three playoff games for the Everett Silvertips before being eliminated. It is likely that Sutter will join the Hershey Bears next season as he looks to build a solid professional game. Pat Quinn
