The Other Sutter Brothers Are Watching

from Tal Pinchevsky of NHL.com,

Monday night, after picking up his son Lukas from the NHL Scouting Combine, Rich Sutter brought his family over to the Southern Alberta home of his twin brother Ron. That night, the twins who played a combined 32 NHL seasons watched their older brother Darryl Sutter and his Los Angeles Kings take a commanding 3-0 series lead in the 2012 Stanley Cup Final.

It’s the latest chapter for one of hockey’s most famous families, one that has seen six brothers combine to play over 5,000 NHL games and four of them serve as NHL coaches.

“Darryl and I are pretty close. We’ve gone through a lot together,” said Brian, the eldest of the six Sutters who played in the NHL. “[We] played against each other for years, were captains of our teams, and coached against each other for years. It’s exciting for him. Darryl has pushed the right buttons to get them to do the job.”

Among the brothers, there’s a special regard held for Darryl, who began the season out of hockey before becoming the Kings’ head coach in December.
