For people wondering, Sestito played well with the Jackets while he was up here. But he was sent back down after 9 games to avoid his contract kicking in.

The Jackets likely traded him because they need more than Johansen as far as center prospects go and Chaput adds that.

Sestito while prior to this year would have been considered likely a 4th line player who mostly just goes out their to fight, his progress in the AHL and the NHL has shown that he's capable of scoring and providing a spark to the team. People really grew to like him this year in Columbus.

He is so huge you can basically just put him anywhere near the net and his job is accomplished. But he's pretty much always willing to fight. If it weren't for Boll's development offensively recently I would say he's like a bigger version of Jared Boll with less offensive upside but more agitator like Derick Dorsett. He'll likely be a 4th liner but he could be a 3rd liner simply because he's so huge.
