Kings looking at Sutter

The Kings have sought permission from the Calgary Flames to speak with Darryl Sutter as Terry Murray’s replacement, a source said this morning. Sutter left his role as Calgary’s general manager last December but remains under contract with the Flames. There’s no indication as to when Sutter might take over. John Stevens will coach tonight’s game at Boston, with Jamie Kompon as his assistant coach. Kings general manager hired Sutter as his coach in San Jose in 1997.
