AHL Syracuse GM and Tampa Bay assistant GM Julien BriseBois praised the play of Andrej Sustr during the Calder Cup playoffs.
"He played really well," BriseBois said. "He contributed and played in all situations. I thought in the playoffs when the pressure started to mount and we were down three games to nothing, our margin for error was very slim. He didn't wilt under the pressure. He kept being assertive on the ice with and without the puck which I thought was a really good sign." Sustr generated two goals, seven points, 25 penalty minutes and a plus-11 rating in 18 games during the AHL postseason. He dressed in two NHL contests with the Lightning this past campaign after signing with the team in March out of the University of Nebraska-Omaha. The towering defenseman may not have much in the way of fantasy value, but he could develop into a solid stay-at-home player at the NHL level.
