Tom Sestito Officially Returning with FlyersBREAKING NEWS, Flyers, News, NHL Monday, July 9th, 2012
Tom Sestito and his agents, Norton Sports Management, have both announced via twitter that the 6′-5″, 230 lb. forward has agreed in principle to the qualifying offer from the Philadelphia Flyers. The offer is for $605,000 for one year.
“Just have to sign the deal and it’s all done, excited to be back in Philly and get the season started,” wrote Sestito on his twitter account.
Sestito figures to compete for a bottom six role next October, and should have ample competition against the likes of Jody Shelley, Zac Rinaldo, Ben Holmstrom and Eric Wellwood. Sestito played in just 14 games with the Flyers last season, which prematurely ended for him after pulling his groin in a fight.
If he remains in Glens Falls for the 2012-13 season, he figures to be a staple in the line-up as one of the Phantoms’ better forwards. He scored just 9 goals and 17 points in 34 games played last season, but has put up better numbers in the past with the Springfield Falcons (when he was part of Columbus’ system).
