Duane Sutter (born Duane Calvin Sutter on March 16, 1960) is a Canadian former forward player and former head coach in the National Hockey League (NHL). He is one of the famed six Sutter brothers (Brian, Darryl, Brent, Ron and Rich) to play in the NHL.
As of August 22, 2011, he is a pro scout for the Edmonton Oilers.
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 (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.
In the 1980–81 season, Duane was joined by his younger brother, Brent on the team and they played together until he was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in 1987.
After the 1983 Stanley Cup win, he had the distinction winning four Stanley Cup championships in his first four seasons of the NHL. He and Brent led all players with 7 and 5 points during the first three games of that series.
He played for the Blackhawks for three seasons, but after the 1989–90 season, he retired from playing.
During 1996–98 and 2000–03, Duane was a part of the coaching staff in the Florida Panthers (1996–98 and 2002–03, he was the assistant coach and during 2000–02, he was the head coach).
