Brandon Sutter expected to start season with Hurricanes

The Canes signed Sutter to a three-year, entry-level contract last March, and he finished out the season with their farm team in Albany (AHL) to positive reviews.

With opening night three months away, the 19-year-old is penciled in as the Canes’ fourth-line center. Actually, it might even be ink.

Sutter is an up-and-down winger who plays a physical style; which is shocking for a Sutter family member!

He will surely be a welcome addition to the Canes’ forward ranks.
