Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ron Sutter
The Sutter twins Ron and Rich were the last ones to be born and play in the NHL. By the time they were ready to make the jump into the pro ranks, they had some mighty big shoes to fill. Four brothers ahead of them had played in the NHL as they were left in Lethbridge to play junior hockey. They were both drafted in 1982, Ron by the Flyers and Rich by the Penguins.

After playing his junior career in Red Deer and Lethbridge, Ron joined the Flyers in the 1982-83 season and remained with them for nine seasons. Ron served as the Flyers' captain from 1989 to 1991 and was reunited with Rich in 1983, when Rich joined the team. Ron was traded to the Blues in 1991 where he was coached by his big brother, Brian. In 1994, Ron was on the move again, heading to the Nordiques who, in turn, sent him to the Islanders then next year.

Ron signed with the Bruins after only one season in New York, but left the team after the 1995-96 season to join the Sharks. His brother, Darryl, became the head coach the next season, but he was once again on the move, signing with the Flames for the 2000-01 season.
