Sunday Funday: The Killorn-Sustr bromance
An occasional feature about the fun things surrounding the Lightning... presented on a Sunday.
One is a 6-foot-1 Canadian who played hockey at Harvard University and joined the Lightning organization as the third-round pick in the 2007 draft, the other is listed at 6-foot-8, a Czech who played college hockey at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and been in the organization for around four years now after signing as an undrafted free agent.
They are Alex Killorn and Andrej Sustr. Lightning forward and defenseman. Besties judging by social media. Let’s take a closer look...
Killorn was already a grizzly Twitter vet when Sustr the N00b joined...
Hope @Akillorn19 will teach me a thing or two over the next few days. #vet #truepro— Andrej Sustr (@AndrejSustr) September 24, 2013
. @AndrejSustr you must have the least amount of followers for someone who's verified. #impressive— Alex Killorn (@Akillorn19) September 24, 2013
They’ve documented the many meals they’ve shared together, because what true friendship doesn’t revolve around food?
Definitely have a lot to be thankful for! #team #family #friends 🍗🍗 pic.twitter.com/NlfDVE9DJM— Jt brownov (@JTBrown23) November 27, 2014

They congratulate each other for big news in their lives...

They spend time away from the rink exploring and doing other sporty things, even though Sustr wasn’t ready for/doesn’t know the Heisman pose...
Great day off in NYC with @tjohnny09 @Akillorn19 and @Opalat18 #tourists pic.twitter.com/Os8i09eARi— Andrej Sustr (@AndrejSustr) October 28, 2013
Like any two good friends, they like to give it to each other... although it seems it’s mostly a one-way street...
Even without a car @andrejsustr found a way to the gym! #car2go pic.twitter.com/2aPgAAYLGu— Alex Killorn (@Akillorn19) August 21, 2015

@AndrejSustr @WholeBodyFuel the things a guy will do for a free meal. 😔— Alex Killorn (@Akillorn19) August 10, 2016
But Killorn also offers support and encouragement too...
Afternoon bike ride thru Tampa turned into a pretty heated street hockey game with these little fellas. #GoBolts pic.twitter.com/NXz0PlGTDn— Andrej Sustr (@AndrejSustr) June 14, 2016
