Hours after signing his first professional contract with the Washington Capitals, Riley Sutter celebrated the best way possible, by making a sizable dent in the score sheet. Sutter would notch a pair of goals and an assist in Everett’s win over the Tri-City Americans Saturday night.

Sutter, 18, had an impressive prospect tournament for the Capitals back in early September. He also looked good in the Capitals training camp and the preseason games he appeared in, before being re-assigned to the Everett Silvertips on September 19.  As you may already know, Sutter comes from an impressive lineage of “hockey Sutters” (More here.)

Sutter signed a three-year entry-level contract earlier in the day on Saturday (here). Sutter’s contract will carry an average annual value of $817,500. A pretty good month for the Capitals’ third round pick (#93) in this year’s NHL entry draft.

With a much fatter wallet in tow, Sutter and the Silvertips, visited the Tri-City Americans Saturday night in Kennewick, Washington. Top-line centerman Sutter got to work.

First goal
Sutter’s first tally of the evening was a filthy snipe from the top of the right circle, beating the Americans tender glove-side, top shelf.

Second goal
Sutter’s second tally was the result of good positioning on Sutter’s part. He would follow the play to the front of the net and clean up the loose change for the score.

The 6’-3” 210 centerman is off to a good start in Everett,  registering two goals and three assists in the first four games this season.
