In the newest episode of The Farm Team Podcast, Host Elliott Sheen welcomed NHL Veteran and owner & CEO of Verbero Hockey, Andy Sutton!
Born and raised in London, Ontario, Sutton worked his way through the minor hockey system and graduated to the Junior ranks at the age of 16. During his junior career Andy earned a scholarship to play for Michigan Tech University in the WCHA. Entering his senior year the 6-foot-7 power forward moved back to the blue line where he put up record numbers and was awarded the WCHA Defensive Player of the Year. Upon graduating with a degree in environmental engineering Andy entered NHL free-agency with an impressive contract offer from 14 different teams.
Debuting with the San Jose Sharks in the 1998-99 season, the longtime defenseman's tour of duty took him to seven different NHL clubs during his 676-game career.
Sutton's successful NHL career is a product of hard work and resiliency. His leadership skills and understanding of team dynamics have given him a tremendous skill set to apply to his next venture with Verbero.
Be bold. Be different. Be Verbero.
