Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the Canucks have recalled forward Tom Sestito from the AHL Utica Comets from a conditioning assignment.
Sestito, 27, has appeared in three games with the Comets this season. He also appeared in two games with the Canucks this season registering one assist (0-1-1). Last season he appeared in 77 games for the Canucks collecting a career-high nine points (5-4-9) and 213 penalty minutes.
