Curtis Suter


Age: 18

Height: 6-4. Weight: 225.

Number: 29.

Hometown: Kelfield, Sask.

Position: Left wing.

Last year: 56 games, 2 goals, 2 assists, 133 penalty minutes.

Draft status: Phoenix Coyotes (5th round, 123rd pick, ‘97).

Quick check: Bothered by a pulled hamstring in preseason. Chiefs are happiest with an enforcer (Kevin Sawyer, Jay Bertsch, possibly Kris Graf). Suter could take a slice of some of that role.

Coach’s comment: “As strong as anybody in the league. With improved fitness and commitment he should dominate at what he does.”
