Derek Sutton is a character from the 1986 film Youngblood. He plays center for the Hamilton Mustangs and wears #9 on his jersey.


When Derek and the team first meet Dean Youngblood, they treat him poorly because he's small and lacks toughness. But they have a change of heart once they see him play and score goals.

After becoming friends with Dean, Derek gets a cheap-shot from the goon Carl Racki and ends up in the hospital. Even injured, Derek convinces Dean to get back out there and play hockey.
