Stars Aquire Sutherby from Pacific Rival

by Kristine

The Stars have acquired Brian Sutherby from the Anaheim Ducks at the cost of a conditional sixth-round 2010 draft pick and prospect David McIntyre.

Andrew’s scouting report has this to say about the new Star…

Gritty, physical forward with good size. Can play agitator role. Not afraid to drop the gloves when necessary. Plays primarily center but also plays wing. Considered a sound defensive forward and effective penalty killer. Limited offensive skills. Primarily a checking line center.

As DMN’s Mike Heika points out, it doesn’t seem like Sutherby brings a lot to the table that we need. Ott, Lundqvist, and Petersen already fill that role (when they’re healthy). In my opinion, it’s just another low-impact trade that brings in yet another spare part.
