  • Kings' Brett Sutter: Traded to Kings, should end up in AHL

    Sutter was dealt to the Kings on Monday for Scott Sabourin and likely will be assigned to AHL Ontario.

    Sutter was waived shortly before the start of the 2015-16 campaign and remained within the Wild's system, picking up four goals and 10 assists with AHL Iowa. His father, Darryl Sutter, coaches the Kings, so that should help the 28-year-old comfortably adjust to a change of scenery.
