Tom Sestito (born September 28, 1987) is an American professional ice hockey player, who currently plays for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL). His older brother Tim plays with the New Jersey Devils organization.

Playing careerEdit

Sestito was drafted 85th overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets. Drafted from the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League, Tom showed his potential scoring 42 goals in the 2006–07 season with the Whalers.[1]

Sestito signed a three-year entry level contract with the Blue Jackets on March 29, 2007.[2] After playing with the Blue Jackets AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch, Tommy made his NHL debut with Columbus in the last game of the 2007–08 season against the St. Louis Blues on April 6, 2008.[3]

He scored his first NHL goal on December 15, 2010 against Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks in a 3-2 OT Loss. He scored his second NHL goal on December 23rd, 2010 again against the Vancouver Canucks but on Cory Schneider instead of Roberto Luongo in a 7-3 Loss. On February 28, 2011 Sestito was traded by the Blue Jackets to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for forwards Greg Moore and Michael Chaput.[4]

On September 27, 2011, the Flyers placed him on waivers with the intention of having him play for their AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms. [5]
