The Capitals selected Sutter in the third round (93rd overall) back in June out of Everett of the WHL. While his regular season numbers weren’t particularly dominant (53 points in 68 games), he picked up his performance in the postseason, collecting nine goals and ten assists in 21 contests, good for fifth on the Silvertips in scoring.
The 18-year-old is part of the Sutter family that has plenty of NHL bloodlines. His father, Ron, played in nearly 1,100 NHL games while his uncles (Brian, Brent, Darryl, Duane, and Rich) all have NHL connections as well.
Sutter has already been sent back to Everett for the 2018-19 campaign and has a pair of assists in three games so far. As a result of his return to junior, his contract will slide a year and will still have three years remaining on it in 2019-20. The deal will have a slightly different AAV at that time based on how much of a signing bonus Washington gave him.
