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

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
