Canucks claim Sestito off waivers

21 Comments

After losing forward Aaron Volpatti to waivers yesterday, the Vancouver Canucks turned around and claimed forward Tom Sestito off waivers from the Flyers today.

The two players are similar in that they both like to hit and don’t mind dropping the gloves.

Sestito, 25, has played 34 career NHL games with Columbus and Philadelphia and has four goals, three assists and 159 PIM.

“I’ll bring physical presence, fight if I have to and chip in some goals in Vancouver,” he told CKWX.
