Brett Sutter Demoted & A Statement

Calgary, AB – The Calgary Flames announced today that forward Brett Sutter has been reassigned to the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League.

In four games with the Flames this season, Sutter picked up his first NHL assist.

Statements via the Flames PR Department.


“I want to apologize to my family, my friends, our fans and the entire Flames family for what took place this past Wednesday night. My background is one of hard work and respect so this incident is totally out of character for me. I have been a captain in junior hockey and an assistant captain last year in Abbotsford so I totally understand the values of leadership and character. I have set the wrong example not only for children who love the Flames and hockey but also for my brother who has been such a great example for me. I want to thank everyone for their support and wisdom over the past few days. It has been especially difficult because of the type of person I really am and will continue to be. Thank you.”


“Last Wednesday’s incident in Phoenix is totally out of character for Brett. He has always demonstrated a tremendous commitment to being a good person and a professional athlete in every aspect of the responsibilities that go with that role. First and foremost, we are a team who cares for and respects each and every member. As his teammates we have conveyed our total support for him and I believe it is important that we also let our community and fans know the same.”
