YouTube Tuesday is a weekly feature where we feature a video that has to do with the Lightning or a Lightning player when they were with another team. We may occasionally feature important moments in the world of hockey.
Andrej Sustr is the tallest player on the Lightning and one of the tallest players in all of the NHL. At 6’8″, he sometimes gets dubbed The Giraffe. Check out this old interview with Sustr while he was still playing with the University of Nebraska-Omaha in NCAA hockey. He really looks like a baby in this interview. This interview was done during his freshman season in 2010-11. He would spend three years in Omaha before signing with the Tampa Bay Lightning as an undrafted free agent. And I’d say Yzerman did pretty well in picking him up as he’s developed into an NHL caliber defenseman.
