Surprising statement by Martin St-Louis who came to the defense of Darryl Sutter

SURPRISING STATEMENT BY MARTIN ST-LOUIS WHO CAME TO THE DEFENSE OF DARRYL SUTTER

BY MARCO
Let's quickly recall the facts.

This weekend, young Quebec forward Jakob Pelletier played his first career NHL game, a great moment for him.

And at his post-game press conference, when asked about Pelletier, Sutter pretended not to know who he was.

"What's his number?"


- Sutter


And he just coldly read his stats off the game sheet.

"At 21, he's still a long way from being a regular in the NHL."

- Sutter


Anyway, it's been getting a huge reaction ever since.



Today at a press conference, Montreal Canadiens head coach Martin St-Louis, who knows Sutter very well, made a surprising statement.

As Marco Normandin reports, he came to the defense of the Flames' head coach:

"It's not the first time Darryl Sutter has made comments like that. I'm not surprised. I don't think there's any malice in it. You have to know him, because he's a good man."

- Martin St. Louis


Interesting. One thing is for sure, St-Louis wouldn't have done this to a young player.
