from Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald,
Calgary Flames assistant general manager Jay Feaster said Friday that forward Brett Sutter will indeed face assault charges stemming from Thursday morning’s punch-throwing incident outside a Scottsdale, Ariz., nightclub.
“We have been informed that . . . the victim is going to follow through and press charges,” said Feaster, a lawyer by training. “So (Sutter) has been charged with assault-touched to injure. It’s a third-degree misdemeanour in Arizona. The next thing that’ll happen from a legal perspective is that a plea will have to be entered at a hearing on Nov. 30 in Scottsdale. Brett won’t have to be there in person. He can have legal counsel enter a plea for him.
“From an organization perspective, our first reaction is that this is highly out of — totally out of — character for this player. That’s not who or what Brett is. Obviously, it’s unfortunate we’re in this situation and it’s unfortunate for Brett.
