Fatherhood a challenge, joy for Sutter

Given the day off yesterday, players had a nice meal, went to the movies, walked around town, etc. Darryl Sutter attended a birthday party for his son Chris, who turns 19 on Friday. Those parties will never get tiresome for Sutter, because back in 1993, doctors told Sutter his son would not live long. Chris Sutter, who has Down syndrome, beat the odds at birth and is a major source of joy and pride for his father. In my LAKings.com feature for this week, I look at the father-son relationship and a different side of Darryl Sutter.
