Hockey Achievement - Inducted 2000
Viking, Alberta, the home of Grace and Louis Sutter and the most famous brother act- Brian, Darryl, Duane, Brent, Rich, and Ron Sutter- in the National Hockey League. Six brothers all playing in the NHL is a remarkable accomplishment that is unmatched in all of professional sports.
All six Sutter's grew up and played their minor hockey in Viking before moving on to Tier II Junior hockey with the Red Deer Rustlers of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.
The "Sutter Six" all eventually made their mark in the NHL, amassing an amazing combined total of 81 years playing in the NHL. During their playing careers, Duane won four Stanley Cup Championships and Brent won two, all with the New York Islanders.
After their playing days, all six Sutter's continued to work in hockey – as coaches, scouts, general managers, and a team owner.
2014 – Brian was inducted into the St. Louis Sports Hall of Fame
2015 – Brent, Rich, and Ron were inducted into the Hockey Alberta Hall of Fame with the Red Deer Rustlers 1980 team.
2017 - Sutter Family (including parents) were inducted into the Hockey Alberta Hall of Fame.
