Andrej Sustr: Signs with KHL club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Per Igor Eronko of Sport-Express, Sustr has signed a one-year deal with Kunlun of the KHL.

Sustr only appeared in five games with the Ducks in 2018-19, so he's decided to take his talents to China in order to get a bump in playing time and perhaps in pay as well. The 28-year-old blueliner will almost certainly remain overseas for the remainder of his professional playing career, which means he'll likely finish his time in the NHL having notched 63 points in 323 career appearances.

Ducks' Andrej Sustr: Let go by Anaheim
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr was waived by the Ducks on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

The Ducks significantly altered their roster makeup before finally snapping a 12-game losing streak against the Wild last Thursday, though Sustr wasn't a part of the contingency plan. A 28-year-old defenseman, Sustr hasn't played since Nov. 25. Look for him to join AHL San Diego in the likely event that he clears waivers.

Ducks' Andrej Sustr: Summoned by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anaheim recalled Sustr from AHL San Diego on Wednesday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

The Ducks finally decided to shake up their roster Wednesday after losing 12 consecutive games, recalling three skaters from their AHL affiliate while sending two players the other way. Sustr isn't known for his offensive contributions, but he's a big body that should be able to provide the big club with an upgrade in the physicality department on the back end.

Ducks' Andrej Sustr: Sent down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Saturday.

Sustr has struggled mightily in his first season with Anaheim, playing in just five games for the Ducks after logging over 40 appearances in each of his past five campaigns with the Lightning. The towering, 6-foot-7 Czech blueliner is a fringe NHLer at the moment and is not on the fantasy radar until he can regain consistent ice time.

Ducks' Andrej Sustr: Gets called up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr was recalled from AHL San Diego on Monday, Elliott Teaford of the O.C. Register reports.

Sustr has been up-and-down from the AHL this season, and when he's been with the Ducks he's only been in the lineup sparingly. However, defensemen Andy Welinski and Josh Mahura were both sent down Monday, so perhaps Sustr will see a bit of playing time.

Ducks' Andrej Sustr: Returned to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks reassigned Sustr to AHL San Diego on Friday.

Sustr has been a healthy scratch for two of Anaheim's last three contests, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 28-year-old blueliner is nothing more than an organizational depth option at this stage in his career.

Ducks' Andrej Sustr: Hops to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks recalled Sustr from AHL San Diego on Sunday.

Sustr has four NHL games under his belt this season and no points to show for it. His time in the minors hasn't been any better with an assist and a plus-1 rating in seven contests. He figures to bounce between the bottom pairing and the press box for this big-club stint.

Ducks' Andrej Sustr: Placed on waivers Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr was designated for waivers by the Ducks on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Sustr's pending demotion, assuming he clears, would appear to be an indication the club wants to give Andy Welinski -- who has notched five points in four games for AHL San Diego -- a chance to earn some NHL minutes. The club may also be looking for ways to get Sustr some additional ice time, considering he has sat out seven of its 11 games this season. A decision on bringing up another player or keeping Sustr around will likely need to be made prior to Sunday's matchup with San Jose, as the Ducks don't have any additional blueliners on the 23-man roster.

Ducks' Andrej Sustr: Inks one-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr flocked to the Ducks on a one-year deal Thursday.

Sustr saw action in just 44 games for the Lightning last season, as he frequently served as a healthy scratch. Getting on the ice with Anaheim won't be any easier, considering the team recently added Luke Schenn and sports highly touted youngsters Marcus Pettersson and Andy Welinski. Unless the 26-year-old Sustr can secure regular minutes, he won't offer much in terms of fantasy value.

Lightning's Andrej Sustr: Struggles to find fit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr did not dress for the Lightning during the playoffs.

He had been a healthy scratch leading up to the postseason and played just 44 games in the regular season. Sustr is 27 and may still potentially find a bottom-pair role in the NHL. But like many big defenders, the 6-foot-7 Sustr will find it progressively difficult to keep up in an increasingly fast NHL.

Lightning's Andrej Sustr: Struggling for spot in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr has been relegated to the press box in nine of the Lightning's previous 16 outings.

Even when he is in the lineup, Sustr is logging a paltry 11:54 of ice time per game this season. Unsurprisingly, the 26-year-old has registered a mere two goals, zero assists and 18 shots in his limited opportunities. An injury to Dan Girardi (neck) could open the door to some additional ice for the Czech, but it's unlikely to be long term.

Lightning's Andrej Sustr: Two goals in last three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr scored his second goal in his last three games in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Islanders.

Sustr's ice time has shot up in his last two games to 19:45 and 21:42, respectively. He's not exactly known for his offense, but might deliver surprising value off the wire in super-deep formats.

Lightning's Andrej Sustr: Struggling to earn ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr slotted back into the lineup Sunday after being a healthy scratch.

With the emergence of Jake Dotchin and Mikhail Sergachev, both Sustr and Slater Koekkoek are battling for the last spot on the blue line. He finished plus-1 on Sunday, but has no points in seven games this season. Sustr has no fantasy value in this situation.

Lightning's Andrej Sustr: Benched again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr will be a healthy scratch for Monday's game against Detroit.

Even though the 26-year-old has logged over 70 games for Tampa Bay in each of the last three seasons, he hasn't played since Opening Night. With Mikhail Sergachev and Dan Girardi joining Tampa Bay's defensive corps for the 2017-18 season, Sustr may simply be the odd man out.

Lightning's Andrej Sustr: Re-signs with Lightning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr signed a one-year, $1.95 million deal Monday with the Lightning.

With the signing, the 26-year-old will spend at least one more season in Tampa Bay after a 2016-17 campaign where he appeared in 80 games. The defenseman scored three goals and recorded 14 total points in that time, as Sustr established himself as a defense-first player for the Lightning with few scoring opportunities, making him a poor fantasy asset.

Lightning's Andrej Sustr: Ultra-rare two-point night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over Detroit.

He came in on an eight-game point drought, part of Sustr's brutal 12 points in 74 games (including this one). With precious little going on in his peripherals, it's hard to imagine a fantasy format where the Czech blueliner is relevant.

Lightning's Andrej Sustr: Carving niche as shot blocker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr is just four blocked shots from tying his career mark of 84.

Sustr is carving a niche for himself as a stay-at-home shot blocker. That makes him a great teammate, but an awful fantasy player. Sustr has just eight points in 59 games this season.

Lightning's Andrej Sustr: No points in 11 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr doesn't have a point since Dec. 29.

Sustr is a massive crease clearer who will never get the offenisve opportunity -- he's a big-bodied muscle that makes life easier for his goalie. Nothing more and nothing less

Lightning's Andrej Sustr: Hits twine for first time this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr potted his first goal of the year Wednesday in a 6-3 win over Calgary.

As it was Tampa's fourth goal -- extending the lead to 4-1 at the time -- it ended up serving as the game-winner. He's not much of an offensive force, as evidenced by Sustr's meager 21 points last year and five points (with a minus-8 rating) this season. Couple that with the Czech's lack of top-end productivity in hits, blocks and PIM, and you're left with precious little in terms of fantasy value.

Lightning's Andrej Sustr: Collects assist against Islanders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sustr recorded his third assist of the season and blocked five shots during Monday's win over the Islanders.

Sustr entered Monday's game beginning 71.3 percent of his shifts in the defensive zone and averaging just 10 seconds of power-play time per night. He's locked into a defense-first role, which significantly limits his fantasy upside. Additionally, with just 17 shots, 25 blocked shots, seven PIM and nine hits through 16 games, he doesn't help in the supporting statistics, either.
