Canucks Claim Tom Sestito Off Waivers

The Vancouver Canucks have claimed Flyers forward Tom Sestito off of waivers this morning.

The Canucks lost tough guy Aaron Volpatti when the Washington Capitals claimed him off waivers yesterday and didn't call anyone else up. They claimed Sestito to fill his role.

Sestito scored two goals in the Flyers' 2-1 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning back on February 5. Those were his only two points on the season in which he has played only seven games and averaged about five minutes of ice time.

The Flyers put Sestito on waivers along with goalie Michael Leighton yesterday. Leighton cleared waivers today.
