Capitals Trade Sutherby to Anaheim Ducks

According to Dump and Chase, Brian Sutherby has been traded to the Anaheim Ducks for a 2009 2nd round draft pick.

Sutherby played in 5 games for the Capitals this season scoring 1 goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was taken by the Capitals in the 1st round, 26th overall, in the 2000 entry draft. He played parts of 6 seasons for the organization. He was a rough competitor and wore the Alternate Captain's "A" but with the depth at center there just didn't seem to be a place for him. He should fit in well with the Ducks who like to play a very physical style of hockey.

Sutherby's Capitals stats:
259 Games, 26 Goals, 35 Assists, 61 Points, 281 Penalty Minutes, -29 +/- Rating, 240 Shots on Goal, 1 Power Play Goal, 2 Shorthanded Goals, 158 Hits, 60 Takeaways, 50 Giveaways, 108 Blocked Shots, 73 Missed Shots, 1,022 Face-offs Won, 1,110 Face-Offs Lost, 0-1 in Shootout Attempts, 1 1st Star of the Game, and 3 3rd Stars of the Game.
