Carter, who has been out of the lineup since suffering a concussion Feb. 18, likely will resume his usual role on the third line alongside Stephen Gionta and Steve Bernier when the Devils travel to First Niagara Center to face the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.
Sestito played his only game of the season for the Devils on Thursday against the Winnipeg Jets.
You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
