Hurricanes agree to terms with Brett Sutter

Posted June 25, 2013

— The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with forward Brett Sutter on a one-year contract. The deal will pay Sutter $600,000 on the NHL level or $150,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of at least $250,000.

Sutter, 26, ranked second among Charlotte Checkers (AHL) skaters in scoring for the 2012-13 season, totaling 48 points (19g, 29a) in 70 games played. The Viking, Alb, native established AHL career highs in goals (19), assists (29) and points (48), serving as Charlotte’s team captain for the second consecutive year. Sutter (6’0”, 200 lbs.) led the Checkers with 17 even-strength goals and was tied for the team lead in shorthanded points (3). He also appeared in three games on the NHL level with the Hurricanes, totaling four penalty minutes.

Originally selected by the Calgary Flames in the sixth round (179th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Sutter has totaled one goal and four assists (5 points) in 37 career NHL games with the Flames and the Hurricanes.

Carolina acquired Sutter on Nov. 17, 2010, along with Ian White in exchange for Tom Kostopoulos and Anton Babchuk. Sutter has tallied 64 goals and 73 assists (157 points) in 405 career AHL games with Quad City, Abbotsford and Charlotte.

    Was trying to think outside the box Gunner. Looked at capgeek numbers. Realistically, they are the only three that we would look at for the 2 buyouts that teams are given to use this year or next. Other than that all other contracts are solid. Both Staals, Skinner, Wardo.

    I get what you're saying about Pitkanen, but Ruutu and Gleason??? No way!!!

    keeps a charlotte guy in charlotte. I dont see either of those 3 being a buyout at this time. Maybe Pitkanen but I think JR would rather him show he is healthy and try and deal him instead of just eating the contract. Not sure even though JR has been given more money he will have the power to do a buyout.

    Maybe Ruutu, Gleason????
