Sutter was acquired by the Panthers from Carolina on Tuesday in exchange for Connor Brickley. Sutter has played in just 12 NHL contests and is still looking for the first point in the majors. The 25-year-old will likely have to wait a little longer as he will be reassigned to AHL Springfield. It is unclear why this trade with made as the players are about the same age, play the same position, and will have roughly the same cap hit. Regardless, Sutter is a near lock to spend the bulk season in the minors and will have to really step up his game if he wants to impress his new team.
Sutter signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Canes on Thursday. Sutter logged 13 goals and 11 helpers with AHL Charlotte last year but is still seeking his first point in the majors. Given his lack of proven ability to contribute offensively, fantasy owners will likely want to consider other depth options for their squads next season.
Sutter was recalled by the Hurricanes on Saturday. Although unspecified, it's possible that Sutter is with the team on emergency conditions due to the lack of healthy forwards. The 6-foot-5, 203-pound winger owns 21 points through 64 contests with the AHL Charlotte affiliate but has averaged just 8:42 of ice time when with the parent organization. While he does accumulate hits (18), he doesn't produce enough elsewhere to be worth fantasy consideration.
Sutter was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Wednesday. The 24-year-old forward didn't see much ice time in the four games with the Bruins after being recalled but made his presence felt by collecting nine hits over that span. He's now AHL-bound again but his impact shouldn't be felt in fantasy leagues considering he's yet to notch a point at the NHL level.
Sutter was recalled by the Hurricanes on Thursday. Sutter, who is expected to be in Carolina's lineup for Thursday's game against Columbus, is still looking for his first regular season NHL point. The 6-foot-5, 203-pound forward has seven games with the big club under his belt to date, including three this season.
