Sustr scored his third goal of the season and had an assist in Friday's win over the Islanders. Sustr isn't a huge offensive contributor, but the Lightning scored a season-high seven goals in their victory Friday and the blueliner stepped up in 19:58 of ice time. While this was only Sustr's second multi-point effort of the season, he's almost at 20 points on the season and logs decent minutes despite seeing no power-play time. He's valuable in some very deep leagues.
Sustr (undisclosed) skated in pregame warm-ups and will play Tuesday against the Bruins, Bryan Burns of NHL.com reports. Sustr will skate on Tampa Bay's second defensive pairing alongside Jason Garrison. The 25-year-old Czech defender has notched five assists in his last 10 outings.
Sustr (undisclosed) is likely to miss his fourth consecutive game Tuesday, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports. Since the Bolts made emergency recalls for defensemen Slater Koekkoek and Luke Witkowski, Sustr's availability for the evening contest is in serious doubt. At 6-foot-7, 220 pounds, Sustr is tough to miss on the ice, but it's a different story in the fantasy realm as he has just 16 points in 61 games. Perhaps Sustr will be ready to return Friday for a home match against the Flyers.
Sustr (undiclosed) has been ruled out for Monday's outing against the Flyers, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Sustr will miss his third outing in a row Monday, which puts his availability for Tuesday contest into question. Although he is stuck in a 18-game goalless streak, the 25-year-old has found ways to contribute, as he's garnered six helpers and 17 blocked shots over that span. Additionally, not being on either of the Lightning's power-play units caps the defenseman's fantasy value.
While Sustr (undisclosed) will not play Saturday night, he could be healthy enough to return to the lineup either Monday or Tuesday, per Lightning coach Jon Cooper, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. It's still not clear what troubles Sustr, but it appears to be a minor issue given that he's already being considered for the upcoming back-to-back set. Nikita Nesterov and Braydon Coburn are likely to round out the third-pairing with Sustr in recovery mode.
