Ashton Sautner (born May 27, 1994) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently playing for the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Sautner was selected by the Edmonton Oil Kings in the eighth round (162nd overall) of the 2009 WHL Bantam Draft. During the 2013–14 season, Sautner's plus/minus record was the best in the WHL.[1]

Sautner went to the Minnesota Wild prospect camp prior to the 2012-13 season. He attended the Arizona Coyotes prospect camp in the 2014 pre-season. During his fourth season with the Oil Kings, despite being undrafted, Sautner was signed to a three-year entry level contract with the Vancouver Canucks on March 14, 2015.[2] On March 24, 2018, the Canucks recalled Sautner on an emergency basis.[3] He made his NHL debut the following night, a 4–1 Canucks victory over the Dallas Stars.[4] Three games later, on March 31 against the Columbus Blue Jackets, Sautner earned his first NHL point, an assist on a Darren Archibald goal.[5]

Sautner began the 2018–19 season with the Utica Comets in the AHL after clearing waivers.[6] On February 19, he was recalled to the NHL for the first time that season.[7]
