Lightning sign Sustr to a one-year, one way deal

The Lightning announced Friday it has signed defenseman Andrej Sustr to a one-year, one-way deal.

Sustr, 23, was a restricted free agent after playing 43 games for Tampa Bay last season. The 6-foot-99, 225-pound defenseman is expected to start the season with the Lightning, with the team hoping he can take another step with his game.

Tampa Bay still has to sign fellow restricted free agents Brett Connolly and Richard Panik.
