    Penguins' Tom Sestito: Assigned to AHL

    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.

    Penguins' Tom Sestito: Back with 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.

    Penguins' Tom Sestito: Sent down Sunday

    Sestito was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday. The veteran bruiser recorded one point in four NHL games this season, taking his career tally to 19. Sestito is part of a dying breed of big, slow, low-skilled players, and moving forward, it would be surprising if he's ever to play more than a few games in the NHL.

    Penguins' Tom Sestito: Called up to Pittsburgh

    Sestito was recalled by the Penguins on Thursday. With a trip to Washington on Thursday, it comes as no surprise that the team has brought in Sestito, one of the few remaining enforcers in the league. It will be a physical game and don't be surprised if the winger tallies some PIM. Outside of that, the 31-year-old is unlikely to add anything to your daily lineups.

    Penguins' Tom Sestito: Reassigned to minors

    Sestito was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports. With Evgeni Malkin expected to be sidelined for 6-to-8 weeks with an upper-body injury, the Penguins were forced to make several roster adjustments Saturday. The team recalled Dominik Simon and Conor Sheary from the AHL, and in order to make room for those additions, demoted Sestito to the minors. The big-bodied grinder didn't have much of an impact during his brief stint with the big club, notching two PIM and four hits in two games.

    Penguins' Tom Sestito: Recalled from minors

    Sestito was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports. Sestito has played exclusively at the AHL level this season, where he's notched three goals, six assists, and 55 PIM over 32 contests. The Penguins sent Josh Archibald back to the minors in a corresponding move to make room for Sestito on the roster. The gritty veteran is expected to provide depth to the fourth line during his stint with the club.

    Penguins' Tom Sestito: Clears waivers Tuesday

    Sestito cleared waivers Tuesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. The news doesn't come as much of a surprise, as Sestito's place on waivers was more of a formality than anything else after the Penguins signed him to a professional contract Monday. He'll report back to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, where he has two goals and four assists in 19 games this season.

    Penguins' Tom Sestito: Signed by Penguins

    Sestito signed by Pittsburgh to a one-year contract on Monday. Sestito has been playing with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on a professional tryout contract, but has now signed on with the Penguins' organization. It is expected the 31-year-old will be waived and if he goes unclaimed, becomes an official member of the Baby Pens. Apparently the winger showed enough in his 19 games in the AHL, scoring two goals and four assists, to convince the team to bring him on board full time.

  • Released from professional tryout

  • Penguins Sign Sestito To PTO

    News: Tom Sestito signed a professional tryout contract last week with the Penguins, Josh Yohe of DKonPittsburghSports.com reports.
    Analysis: As a tough guy who gobbles up penalty minutes, Tom Sestito doesn't seem to mesh well with coach Mike Johnston's vision of rolling out four lines with scoring ability. Don't expect him to crack the Penguins' 23-man roster out of training camp, barring a litany of injuries.
