Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ken Sutton
1989 saw Ken Sutton help his junior team the Saskatoon Blades make it to the Memorial Cup final. He was named to its all-star team as well as being drafted by the Sabres. He played the 1989-90 season with the team's AHL affiliate in Rochester and split the next season between the AHL and the NHL.

The 1991-92 season was Sutton's first full year in the NHL and he played with Buffalo for the next three years. Sutton was traded to the Oilers in 1995, who then dealt him the next year to St. Louis. After starting the next season in the IHL, the Blues traded Sutton to New Jersey, who then sent him to San Jose. It wasn't long before he was back in a Devils uniform, in 1998-99, but he spent the majority of the year in the AHL. He won the Eddie Shore Award for the league's top defenceman and was named to the first all-star team.

The Devils won the Stanley Cup in 2000, as would Sutton, who didn't play a game in the playoffs. After making it back to the finals in 2001, Sutton signed with the Islanders for the 2001-02 season.
