The festivities included a bagpipper ushering his son, Christopher, and Kings forward Colin Fraser into a banquet hall, with a pair of RCMP officers part of the parade.
“I was lucky to be able to get it for a couple of days, to tie it in with the golf tournament,” Sutter said. “Then, it goes to the farm — and that’s better.”
