He’s your ultimate team guy, who thought first about team stats than his personal stats. He was always willing to help teammates not just on the ice, but go that extra mile off the ice as well. - Rick TocchetRON SUTTER
1989-90 through 1990-91
One of five brothers in a very famous hockey family, Ron Sutter’s career lasted eight seasons in the city of Philadelphia.
Sutter was a key member of the great Flyers teams of the 80's, and although he did not put up the offensive numbers as some of his teammates, his role was all that much greater to the team.
Sutter personified the stigma of a player that opponents most hated to play against. His tenacity and passion on the ice earned him the respect of every person in the locker room.
He was your go-to-guy whose enormous task was always to shut down the star of the other team – which he most often accomplished.
Drafted fourth overall by the Flyers in 1984, Ron played alongside his brother Rich for three seasons in Philly, where he accumulated 137 goals and 223 assists for 360 points in 555 games, while making two trips to the Stanley Cup Final with the Orange & Black.
