He’s a great presence in our room and a fantastic person. We’re thrilled to name him an assistant captain as we continue to push to the playoffs.”
Sutter, an ’02-born Kamloops, B.C. native, first debuted with the Silvertips as an undrafted signee in 2019. Since then he has appeared in 155 career games on the Everett blueline, logging seven goals and 34 assists along the way.
