Tom Sestito recalled (December 13)

He is listed as a healthy scratch for tonight's game (Dec. 13) at Washington.

His bio -- http://flyers.nhl.com/club/player.htm?id=8473542


From Dave Isaac:

According to Barry Hanrahan, the #Flyers have recalled Tom Sestito.
Quote:
It doesn't sound like the #Flyers actually have the intention of playing Sestito, just called him up to serve the suspension.
From the preseason:

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/hocke...mes/50592476/1

Quote:
Brendan Shanahan handed out his seventh suspension in seven days Wednesday, ruling this time on Tom Sestito.

The Philadelphia Flyers forward will sit out the rest of the preseason and the first two regular-season games for a hit from behind on the New York Rangers' Andre Deveaux on Monday. He was ejected on the play.

"Sestito actually increases his speed and makes contact directly with Deveaux's back, driving him hard into the glass," Shanahan said in a video explaining his decision.

Same. At least he plays with a mean streak and has some kind of skill. He is a crappy fighter though.

So they don't actually plan on playing him? Shame I kinda want to see what he can do at the NHL level.

Interesting, I'm guessing he isn't getting paid. So he is being called up when hes making a paycheck to not making a paycheck. sucks.

I hope he becomes the new Shelley once his suspension is served. Even they keep Sheller around.

Sorry for bumping it up, but did find this interesting:

Technically, Tom Sestito has been called up but he still has to serve his NHL suspension he received in preseason.

He served it and is staying up beyond that.
-PSPhantoms

So I guess Sesito is staying up as our extra guy. Hope to see him in a game here or there. Liked him during training camp. Doesnt take **** from no-one and actually has some offensive upside.

Hope he gets to play. We could use his size against the Bruins.

I wonder if he learned anything in the AHL. The amount of penalties this guy takes is insane. Rather have Testwuide, I hear he plays good d.

Sestito is the man. If he didn't get the suspension I think he probably would have started the season with the big club.

He's not the smartest player out there though, iirc. It could have been that at camp he was trying to impress with energy and skating and such. One thing Shelley has going for him (assuming it is Shelley's spot Testito would take) is that he has a pretty decent hockey sense. For an enforcer of course. He just lacks most of everything else.

Not that it matters too much who our 15th forward is, but I would have preferred Holmstrom. Zolnierczyk has filled in admirably but he isn't really a center.
