Duane Calvin Sutter (born March 16, 1960 in Viking, Alberta) is a Canadian former forward and former head coach in the National Hockey League. He is one of the famed six Sutter brothers to play in the NHL. He is a scout for the Edmonton Oilers.

Playing careerEdit

Duane was drafted by the New York Islanders in 1979 in the 1st round and as the 17th pick overall. During the following season he made his debut for the Islanders, and as a rookie was a key contributor to the Islanders first Stanley Cup championship. Duane Sutter, who was dubbed "Dog" by his teammates because he yapped and barked before and during games, also contributed to the ensuing 1981, 1982 and 1983 Stanley Cup championships. Playing in the corners of the rink, Duane Sutter was tough but skillful. Sutter had an underrated passing ability and scoring touch.

After the 1983 Cup win, Duane had the distinction winning four Stanley Cup championships in his first four seasons of the NHL. The Duane and Brent unexpectedly led all players with 7 and 5 points during that finals series.

In the 1980–81 season he was joined by his younger brother, Brent, on the team and they played together until Duane was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in 1987.

He played for the Blackhawks for three seasons, but after the 1989–1990 season he retired.

During 1996–1998 and 2000–2003 he was a part of the coaching staff in the Florida Panthers (1996–1998 and 2002–2003 he was assistant coach and during 2000–2002 he was head coach)

Duane's son Brody, is a forward for the Western Hockey League's Lethbridge Hurricanes.
