Tom Sestito and Steve Oleksy will be healthy scratches Thursday against the Stars.

Through eight games this season, Sestito has posted a point with 15 hits and 24 PIMs while seeing just 5:28 of ice time on average. Suffice it to say, neither player boasts much fantasy value.

Tom Sestito and Mike Condon will be scratched against the Islanders on Thursday night.

Look for Tom Sestito to be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Florida Panthers.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have waived Tom Sestito.

The 29-year-old enforcer has just 141 career NHL games to his credit since being drafted in 2006. A career minor leaguer, Sestito's primary value is to leagues that value PIMs, which he's amassed 451 of in his time in the show.

Tom Sestito has come into the Penguins training camp in the best shape of his life.

Sestito is a fighter and that makes it tough on him as most teams have done away with the enforcer taking up a roster spot. Sestito has been trying to improve other facets of his game and has been doing well thus far. "I have to give Tommy Sestito credit. He wasn't in great shape last year. He came in this year in really good shape," assist coach Rick Tocchet said. "If he can be really good on the wall, keep up with his skating and not be a liability in our own end, there's no reason he can't be an NHL player." He likely will start the season on the farm but he could see some NHL action this season.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have assigned Tom Sestito to the AHL.

Sestito played in four regular season games in 2015-16, but he hasn't suited up in the playoffs this year. Even if he does return, he won't have any fantasy value.
