    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.
