I don't think there's an issue following this procedure for 2016.

Just thinking about this, we have a Citrix Netscaler - would there be any reason this wouldn't work if I was using SSTP VPN which runs over port 443?

I also don't think there technically would be any problem.
You just need to be aware of the fact that client would have to reestablish the VPN session to another server, if the one it's connected to will become unavailable.
