Sestito signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Penguins on Friday. Sestito will be receiving an average annual salary of $575,000 after making only four appearances for Pittsburgh this past season. He'll likely spend the majority of the 2016-17 season at AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton once again.
Sestito was re-assigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday. Sestito has yet to log any ice time so far during the playoffs, so this move shouldn't affect coach Mike Sullivan's line arrangements. Sestito will head back to Wilkes-Barre Scranton for some extra playing time, although if injuries start to pile up again with the big club, Sestito would likely get called back up as an insurance option.
Sestito was recalled by the Penguins on Tuesday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Sestito will provide the Penguins with some insurance with multiple forwards dealing with injuries. The 28-year-old has played in just one career NHL postseason game but could have a chance to increase that number Wednesday should the need call for it. Either way, it's unlikely he will do enough to be worthy of consideration in playoff pools.
Sestito was assigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports. Sestito was a healthy scratch for the first two games of the Penguins' first-round playoff series with the Rangers, so his banishment to the minors won't affect coach Mike Sullivan's line arrangements. Should Sullivan determine that the Penguins need a more physical skater on the fourth line later on in the series, Sestito could be called upon to return to the big club.
The Penguins have recalled Sestito from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. With one helper and 19 PIM in four NHL games this season, the 28-year-old forward gives the Penguins added depth and size up front, but he's off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest of formats.
