Arizona Coyotes Coach Dave Tippett will officially enter the 1,000-games-coached club Tuesday night, joining 23 others who accomplished that feat in the NHL.
One of those club members happens to be Kings Coach Darryl Sutter. Sutter is sixth among active coaches in games coached. For Sutter, Tuesday night will be game No. 1,171.
“For somebody like Dave who has coached as long as he has -- he played also, obviously -- you have to be able to do it through the changes with the game, to be able to sustain that,” Sutter said after Tuesday’s morning skate. “Tells you a lot, too.”
