Canucks claim Sestito off waivers from Flyers

The Vancouver Canucks announced Friday they have claimed left wing Tom Sestito off waivers from the Philadelphia Flyers.

In a corresponding move, the organization reassigned forward Andrew Ebbett to the American Hockey League's Chicago Wolves.

Sestito has appeared in seven games for the Flyers this season, producing two goals and a plus-1 rating. A 2006 third-round draft pick (No. 85) of the Columbus Blue Jackets, Sestito has four goals and seven points in 34 career NHL games.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
