Sestitio out 6-8 Weeks
There's often a debate among Flyers fans about whether or not Tom Sestito should be on the team.
It sounds like those fans can live in peace and harmony for the next 6-8 weeks.
The Flyers Twitter account tweeted that Sestito has a torn groin muscle and will have it repaired surgically.
Sestito fought Buffalo's Zach Kassian in Thursday's 7-2 win. Below is a video of the fight.
With Sestito out, the team will need to dress another forward in order to fill out the lineup. In anitcipation of this move, the team has loaned Erik Gustafsson to the Adirondack Phantoms.
It has been reported by several sources that after another successful day of practicing, James van Riemsdyk may be that forward.
If van Riemsdyk is unable to play, then it is largely assumed that Harry Zolnierczyk or Ben Holmstrom will return to fill the vacant spot.
