Ryan Suter- Part Owner Of The Madison Capitols

from Tamira Madsen of the MadisonMagazine,

The Suter name means hockey in Madison.

So it’s no surprise that Madison native and National Hockey League superstar Ryan Suter is involved with the Madison Capitols, a new team that competes in the United States Hockey League starting this season. The Capitols drop the puck this month and will play their home games at the Alliant Energy Center.

While Suter is a member of a nine-man ownership contingent of the franchise, the twenty-nine-year-old was motivated to get involved with the Capitols to lend support to a sport that’s given him and his family so much enjoyment over the years.

“It kind of honors my dad, my whole family—bringing the USHL back here and putting the Madison Capitols on the jersey, that’s a huge honor for my family,” says Suter, who played one season at the University of Wisconsin in 2003–04. Now a defenseman with the Minnesota Wild, Suter has played in the NHL for nine seasons and signed a $98 million, thirteen-year contract with the Wild in 2012.

Hopefully, this finally puts to rest any delusional ideas that he was ever seriously considering joining the Red Wings.

However, it won’t.
