The History Between Jakob Pelletier and Darryl Sutter

image

Earlier this year in January, Calgary Flames head coach Darryl Sutter was reflecting on rookie forward Jakob Pelletier's NHL debut following a triumphant 6–3 victory against the Tampa Bay Lightning. When questioned about Pelletier's first performance in the National Hockey League by TSN's Salim Valji, Sutter remained candid about the 21-year-old AHL standout.
"Jakob Pelletier, what number is he?" Sutter inquired. "49 ... six minutes, 35 seconds. 13 shifts. Averaged 37 seconds a shift. Got 43 seconds on the power play, played 5 minutes and 52 seconds [at even strength]. Had one shot on goal and one hit."

"It's the NHL. 21 years old. He's got a long way to go."

Jakob Pelletier's Recent Response to Darryl Shutter's Candid Remarks

The Flames had originally chosen Pelletier in the first round (No. 26 overall) of the 2019 NHL Draft. Notably, Pelletier actually marked a significant milestone as the first Flames draft pick since 2018 to debut in the NHL and also became the first player born since 2000 to grace the Flames' regular-season roster.
After a 10-0 pre-season win for the Flames against the Vancouver Canucks, Jakob Pelletier had this to say when asked about his recent number change from #49 to #22:
Flames forward Jakob Pelletier with the line of the day (and a gentle dig at the old boss): "I think it's easier for the coaches to know the no.22 to the no.49. It's a joke. Just kidding, just kidding."

The Flames are gearing up for an interesting season with potential for a bounce back performance under new head coach Ryan Huska.
