Sutter was promoted to AHL Hershey on Monday, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports. Sutter is about to get his first taste of pro-level hockey. The 19-year-old was over a point-a-game player in junior this season, putting up 41 points in 38 games with the WHL's Everett Silvertips.
Sutter signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Capitals on Saturday. The deal is worth $817,500 AAV. Sutter was a force to be reckoned with for WHL Everett last season, as he added 25 goals and 28 assists to complement a plus-22 rating over 68 regular-season games. He comes from a legendary hockey family, with a father and five uncles having played at the top level. It will be exciting to monitor his progress as he embarks on his professional career.
