One day after the Edmonton Oilers acquired defenseman Mark Fistric from Dallas in exchange for a third-round pick in the upcoming drafft, the Oilers said defenseman Andy Sutton is not expected to play this season because of his knee problems. "We don't believe Andy will be playing this year," general manager Steve Tambellini said, according to the Edmonton Journal. Sutton's serious knee injury may end his career, and there is a chance he will have a managerial role with the Oilers if he can't play. Sutton, 37, signed a one-year, $1.75 million extension with the Oilers last February. He had 10 points in 52 games in 2010-2011, and he was signed because of his toughness and leadership. But he has since had surgery on his knee and is still recovering. His status is part of the reason the Oilers acquired Fistic, 26. Fistic's salary is $1.45 million for this season, according to the Journal, and he becomes an unrestricted free agent July 1.
