The 26th overall pick by Washington in the 2000 Entry Draft, Sutherby has 41 NHL goals and 90 career points. Sutherby was limited to 15 games on a PTO with the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage in 2011-12. He missed most of the season following back surgery to repair a herniated disc, only registering 1 goal and 4 points during his time with the club.On November 19, 2007 he was traded to the Anaheim Ducks from Washington in exchange for a second round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Sutherby was traded to the Dallas Stars for David McIntyre and a conditional 6th round draft pick on December 14, 2008 . On March 9, 2009, Sutherby was re-signed by the Stars to a two-year contract, but would not return to the team once his deal was complete. Earlier this season, the St. Johns IceCaps gave him a chance on a PTO, but was released from his PTO before playing a game.

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
