CGY Player to Watch: #7 Brett Sutter
Keep an eye out for No.7 Brett Sutter tonight.
Sutter has enjoyed playing the Gulls so far this season. In four games against San Diego, Sutter has 5 points (2g, 3a) including scoring the game-winner on December 11, 2022.
Currently in a tight race to maintain first place in the AHL standings, Sutter says the group is focused more on what they need to do each game, rather than scoreboard watching, or looking too far ahead.
“Just trying to focus on our game,” Sutter explained. “Final stretch and heading into playoffs we’ve got to dial in all those little details that are going to make us successful. Trying not to focus on too much going on around the league and just get our game in order.”
