Reign re-sign Brett Sutter - LA Kings Insider

He’s back!

The Ontario Reign have re-signed forward Brett Sutter on an AHL contract, with the veteran forward slated to return to the organization for his franchise record sixth season with the team.

Sutter is the only player to have skated for Ontario in each of the team’s six seasons as a member of the AHL. The now 33-year-old forward is the all-time Reign franchise leader in goals, assists, points and games played.

Not only is Sutter’s re-signing important on the ice – he was one of just four Reign players with 10 goals and 25 points during the 2019-20 season – but his presence in the locker room has been an important staple for the Kings process of developing its younger players.

More to come on Sutter later in the week – Chatted virtually with the captain about his return to Ontario, his role in developing future Kings and more. Stay tuned!
