Kukla's Korner Hockey

Like Father, Like Son

from the CP via TSN,
The already improbable story of hockey's fabled Sutter family took a twist that moved it into the realm of surreal coincidences Saturday. Calgary Flames general manager Darryl Sutter was aware long ago that there was something special about having six brothers who played in the NHL. He was aware that drafting his own son on Saturday would be a high point of his life as a hockey dad. But he was visibly flabbergasted when informed later of a coincidence of which he swears he was completely unaware: Both father and son were drafted 179th overall, 27 years apart.
