5. Darryl Sutter — 8/19/58

While some of you may remember him as the coach of the Los Angeles Kings during the back-and-forth playoff battles from 2010-2015, Darryl Sutter was also a Chicago Blackhawks’ defenseman for 8 seasons (1979-87).

Sutter had a respectable NHL career in which he tallied 279 points (161G, 118A) with a -11 ± rating in 406 games, all with the Blackhawks.

Numerous injuries would cut Sutter’s NHL career short and he would retire after the 1986-87 season; he was only 28 at the time.

Darryl Sutter found himself a job with the same organization that drafted him, the Chicago Blackhawks.

He would coach the Blackhawks for three seasons, and then, go on to coach the San Jose Sharks (1997-2002), the Calgary Flames (2002-2006), and the Los Angeles Kings (2011-2017). Sutter would win two Stanley Cups with the Kings (2012, 2014).
