@TSNBobMcKenzie

No surprise, but Andrej Sustr, 6-foot-8 Univ of Nebraska-Omaha junior dman (UFA), has officially decided to leave school/field NHL offers.

UNO's college season ended on the weekend. Sustr will weigh his options, and he has many, this week. No rush or timetable on a decision


Larry Brooks @NYP_Brooksie
Rangers will be all in on Omaha-Nebraska FA defenseman Andrej Sustr. Today's Post. http://nyp.st/WAmnLw


Bob McKenzie@TSNBobMcKenzie 1m
College UFA 6-foot-8 D Andrej Sustr will cull list of 20 to 25 interested NHL teams tomorrow and Friday, likely to sign by weekend.



Cory Pronman just released a writeup on Sustr:
http://www.hockeypro...filtered/?p=339

Andrej Sustr, Defense, Unsigned (Nebraska-Omaha):
Sustr is a very toolsy prospect with significant upside although with some risk as well. He remains unsigned as of this writing, but per TSN’s Bob McKenzie he will leave school and sign with an NHL team. The 22 year old Junior was on the third All-WCHA team this season, notching 25 points in 39 games, putting him top 20 in NCAA scoring for defensemen. His skating is average, but notably above-average for a 6′8′’ defenseman. His mobility has seen significant advancements in the last 12-24 months. He’s a good puck-mover too, showing nice touch with the puck and the offensive instincts to make unusual offensive plays for a player his size. For Nebraska-Omaha on the man advantage I’ve seen him be used in front of the net as a screen or a primary quarterback up high. This combo of traits make Sustr a very desirable asset with the potential to be a #3 if not a #2 defenseman. He is not a player without warts though, for one even though he’s a huge player with a good wingspan, he isn’t all that physical. His decisions in both ends, while not a major issue, could use some work as he can make the odd bad turnover or be off with his positioning.


*****SIGNED IN TAMPA BAY*****

Jump on it Gillis! This will make losing out on Schultz a little more bearable.

Offer him Ballard's spot. It's not like he's using it.

Ballard's spot? You mean you want to tell him that even if he outperforms many other dmen on our roster that he'll probably be scratched? :P

Buy him a car. Then throw a sick party at Tanev's place with lots of hot chicks and invite him so he thinks Vancouver players got it made.

Lots of interest for this guy. Detroit, Ottawa, LA and us were all rumoured to be in the hunt. He'd also attended Pittsburgh and Tampa's prospect camps, so they can't be ruled out. Not so easy to grab every UFA, but Gillis and Co. are at least in talks with his agent.

He has to put on a bit of weight but other than that he would be a great prospect to have. Also someone for Chara to pick on lol

Gillis better not promise him NHL ice time. He should just say you will be guaranteed ice time within our Organization.

He would have to spend time in the AHL first.

I don't think you need to worry about that - Schultz is a perfect example.

The trouble is unless he wins all three fights he's in, has a goal and 3 assists, is a plus 5 in a 4-0 shutout, all in the first game he plays, AV will decide to either bench him or make him play with another partner ..

I just hope the Bruins don't get him. Can you imagine those 2 giants playing on the same team after chara has taken him under his wing?

From what I can find on Google since I saw his name a few days ago, he's a smooth skating defenceman who can make the first pass out of his zone. Excellent vision and has a cannon of a shot if given the chance to let go. He doesn't play the game like Chara, but he's been compared to having a similar style like Tyler Myers. Not exactly Myers calibre but something close to it. He just needs to beef up and lay some hits and he can he a hybrid of Chara and Myers :)

UNO website has him listed (generously) at 225lbs. Other articles I've seen list him ~218-220. He'll fill out.
