Canes Sign Brett Sutter to One-Year Contract

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has re-signed forward Brett Sutter to a one-year contract. The deal will pay Sutter $550,000 on the NHL level or $105,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of at least $150,000.

Sutter, 25, completed his fifth professional season in 2011-12, spending the majority of the year with the Hurricanes’ top minor-league affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers. The Viking, Alb., native notched three assists in 15 NHL games with the Hurricanes, and averaged 7:34 in ice time per game. On the AHL level, he totaled 13 goals, 16 assists (29 points) and 58 penalty minutes in 63 games, and served as team captain for the Checkers.

Sutter (6’0”, 200 lbs.) was originally acquired by the Hurricanes on Nov. 17, 2010, along with Ian White, in exchange for Tom Kostopoulos and Anton Babchuk. Calgary’s sixth-round draft choice, 179th overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Sutter has earned five points (1g, 4a) and totaled 23 penalty minutes in 34 career NHL games with Calgary and Carolina. He has tallied 45 goals, 64 assists (109 points) and 324 penalty minutes in 335 career AHL games with Quad City, Abbotsford and Charlotte.
