WATCH: Darryl Sutter's son was doing some coaching at All-Star Game

There were a lot of great moments during the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday and throughout the entire All-Star weekend, but one of the best -- and probably the best -- had to be Chris Sutter, the son of Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter, doing some coaching behind the Team Foligno bench throughout the game.

In the video above you see him congratulating Bobby Ryan on his goal, and even doing a little bit of coaching with Patrick Kane in an effort to get them back into the game late in the third period. 

Chris Sutter was born in 1993 with a form of Down Syndrome known as Trisomy 21, a genetic disorder that impacts a child's physical and mental development. In a feature story on the Kings' website back in 2012 written by Rich Hammond, Sutter talked about the long odds his son faced -- and has since overcome -- when he was born when doctors believed he would not live long, and that if he did, he would probably have to spend his life in an institution.

He now plays the guitar, has lifted the Stanley Cup, and on Sunday was doing some major work behind the bench of an NHL All-Star game.
