Canucks' Sestito Activated

News: Tom Sestito (lower body) was activated from IR on Friday.
Analysis: Tom Sestito missed just over a month with the lower-body injury, but looks like he'll be an option for the Canucks on the fourth line Saturday versus Toronto. The gritty winger has been limited to just two games this season.

Canucks' Sestito Skates Thursday

News: Tom Sestito (lower body) was able to skate on his own at the end of Thursday's practice.
Analysis: Tom Sestito is traveling with the Canucks on their seven-game road trip that kicks off Friday in Columbus, seemingly indicating that the team hopes to have him available at some point. Since the fourth-line tough guy has missed over three weeks with the injury, he'll have to get in several practices before having a shot at rejoining the lineup.

Tom Sestito

Canucks Place Sestito On IR

News: Tom Sestito was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: Tom Sestito was ruled out indefinitely after suffering a lower-body injury in Sunday's loss to the Predators. The Canucks are expected to recall Frank Corrado from AHL Utica to take his spot on the 23-man roster.

Canucks' Sestito Out Indefinitely

News: Tom Sestito (lower body) is out indefinitely.
Analysis: Tom Sestito left Sunday's game with an injury, and it looks like he's going to miss a significant period of time. Bo Horvat will make his NHL debut Tuesday against the Avalanche in Sestito's place.

Canucks' Sestito Leaves With Injury

News: Tom Sestito left Sunday's game against the Predators with a lower-body injury and didn't return, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Tom Sestito was in the lineup for the second straight game while Alex Burrows (suspension) remained unavailable. Even if the injury proves to be minor and Sestito is deemed available to play Tuesday against the Colorado, it sounds like the team plans to replace him in the lineup anyway with prized prospect Bo Horvat, who was recalled from a conditioning assignment at AHL Utica on Sunday.

Canucks' Sestito Scores Point In First Game

News: Tom Sestito made his season debut Saturday against the Oilers, supplying an assist and six hits in his 6:25 of ice time.
Analysis: Tom Sestito had been a healthy scratch in each of the Canucks' previous 10 contests, but Alex Burrows' three-game suspension forced him in the lineup Saturday. The Canucks don't expect much from Sestito other than to provide some physicality on the fourth line, so the assist he collected versus the Oilers was something of a surprise.

Canucks' Sestito Leaves Practice With Sore Neck

News: Tom Sestito left Friday's practice early with a sore neck.
Analysis: Tom Sestito's injury is unclear at this point, but a sore neck shouldn't cause him to miss time at the start of the regular season, unless there is something more severe than initially thought. It wouldn't be surprising if the Canucks held Sestito out of Saturday's preseason game, but given that he isn't necessarily a lock to make the roster, it would probably benefit the rugged winger to play if he can.

Canucks' Sestito Exits Practice, But OK For Trip

News: Tom Sestito left Thursday's practice with a sore hip flexor but said he will be fine to play during the team's upcoming five-game road trip, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: The fourth-liner will probably just receive extra treatment over the next few days but isn't expected to miss any game action. Tom Sestito potted his fifth goal of the season Wednesday against the Blackhawks, but didn't spend any time in the box to add to his league-leading 167 penalty minutes.

Sestito Piles Up PIM In Canucks' Line Brawl

News: Tom Sestito was one of ten players who received 15 penalty minutes apiece just two seconds into Saturday's game against Calgary. He managed to skate 11 more shifts without incident in the Canucks' 3-2 victory.
Analysis: The line brawl was something to behold, but it was just another day at the office (penalty-box branch) for Tom Sestito, who leads the NHL with 167 PIM.

Canucks' Sestito Sets Up Shot In Penalty Box

News: Tom Sestito racked up 22 penalty minutes in Wednesday's 9-1 collapse at the hands of the Ducks.
Analysis: With the Canucks trailing 6-1 after two periods, the team resorted to goonery in the third, with Tom Sestito leading the charge. Sestito was one of three players ejected for the Canucks on a night they compiled 73 penalty minutes as a team. Incredibly, Sestito has 49 PIM over his last two games and leads the league with 152, 43 more than the next player. He's gold in fantasy leagues that reward such behavior.

More Sin Bin Time For Canucks' Sestito

News: Tom Sestito was tagged with nine penalty minutes in Vancouver's 5-1 loss at Los Angeles on Saturday.
Analysis: He wasn't hired for his shooting prowess or his passing touch. His 43 PIMs lead all Vancouver skaters.

Canucks' Sestito Signs On For Two More Years

News: Tom Sestito will return to Vancouver on a two-year deal.
Analysis: Tom Sestito was claimed off waivers in February and contributed just one point in 23 games with Vancouver. He spent 152 minutes on the ice and 53 minutes in the penalty box, fully living up to his reputation as an enforcer.

Vancouver's Sestito Sent Off Early

News: Tom Sestito skated all of 27 seconds Saturday before finding himself in a fight with Calgary's Brian McGrattan. The zebras slapped Sestito with five minutes for the fight, plus 10 minutes for misconduct and two more for instigating.
Analysis: It's always nice to open up the box scores and find a month's worth of penalty minutes in a single contest. Tom Sestito has 51 PIMs in his 18 starts since the Canucks claimed him off waivers at the end of February.

Canucks' Sestito Plays Thursday

News: Tom Sestito (lower body) saw 8:13 worth of ice time Thursday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Tom Sestito was limping noticeably Wednesday, but he was able to play Thursday, recording two penalty minutes in the process, which brings his season total in that category to 36 in 17 games.

Tom Sestito, LW, VAN Canucks' Sestito Dealing With Lower Body Injury

Tom Sestito

Canucks' Sestito Dealing With Lower Body Injury

News: Tom Sestito (lower body) was limping noticeably Wednesday, the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: It's unclear is Tom Sestito tweaked the hip injury he was bothered by earlier this month or if this is a new ailment. He's questionable for Thursday's tilt against the Coyotes.

Canucks' Sestito Not Slowed Down By Hip Injury

News: Tom Sestito, who had been dealing with a hip injury, logged six minutes of ice time in Sunday's loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Tom Sestito tweaked his hip during an optional practice Friday, but he was able to play his normal limited role without any apparent complications. The low-scoring grinder is safe to deploy if you're using him to rack up penalty minutes.

Tom Sestito

Sestito Heads Straight To Penalty Box In Vancouver

News: Tom Sestito picked up a five-minute fighting major Saturday in his first game with the Canucks. He didn't show any signs of the lower-body injury that he sustained last week during a conditioning assignment.
Analysis: This is why the team claimed him off waivers. It's hard to make a confident projection of ice time for a fringe player on a new team, but we suspect that the Canucks will encourage his physical play as a way of protecting their elite scorers.

Canucks Claim Sestito Off Waivers

News: The Canucks claimed Tom Sestito off waivers from the Flyers on Friday, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: Tom Sestito has not appeared in an NHL game since Feb. 11, but he will jump back onto a roster after being claimed by Vancouver. Sestito will be the extra forward for the Canucks, so don't expect him to play a major role with his new squad.

Flyers Place Sestito On Waivers

News: Tom Sestito (lower body) was placed on waivers on Thursday, CSN Philly reports.
Analysis: Tom Sestito has been a healthy scratch since Feb. 11, spending most of that time with AHL Adirondack on a conditioning assignment. He'll likely remain in the minors and receive more regular playing time than he would with the Flyers.

Flyers' Sestito Suffers Injury During Conditioning Stint In AHL

News: Tom Sestito suffered a lower body injury during a conditioning stint with AHL Adirondack, the South Jersey Courier-Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Sestito will be reevaluated Saturday by the Flyers to assess the extent of the injury. If the injury checks out as minor, Sestito likely be recalled by the Flyers in the near future once he's back to full speed.

Tom Sestito

Flyers' Sestito Assigned To AHL

News: The Flyers have assigned Tom Sestito to their AHL affiliate for conditioning purposes, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Tom Sestito has two goals in seven games with the Flyers, but has yet to play since February 11. This stint in the AHL will freshen Sestito up and he will likely be recalled in the near future.

Sestito Carries Flyers To Win

News: Tom Sestito provided all the offense the Flyers needed Tuesday night, scoring both their goals in a 2-1 win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: With the two tallies, Tom Sestito doubled his career goal total. Don't get caught up in this offensive explosion, as he's still not much more than an enforcer.

Sestito May See Ice Time

News: Tom Sestito may see his first action of the season according to Sam Carchidi of The Philadephia Inquirer
Analysis: Tom Sestito may be thrust into the lineup to fill the enforcer role, with the loss of Zac Rinaldo to injury. The big left-winger doesn't bring much to the table unless your league rewards you for penalty minutes.

Tom Sestito

Philadelphia Brings Back Sestito

News: Tom Sestito agreed to a one-year, $605,000 deal with Philadelphia on Monday, CSN Philly's Tim Panaccio reports.
Analysis: As the modest price tag implies, Tom Sestito is nothing more than a potential enforcement specialist.

Flyers Move Sestito (Groin) To Long-Term IR

News: Tom Sestito was placed on the long-term injured reserve list by the Flyers, according to PHilly.com.
Analysis: Tom Sestito's timetable for a return (6-8 weeks remains) the same, but the move allows the Flyers to clear cap room.
