Tom Sestito picked up an assist in his first game of the season Saturday.

If you had him in your lineup last night, you were probably expecting a fight so while the assist was nice, you were likely disappointed he had no penalty minutes in 6:25 minutes of action. He played with Linden Vey and Derek Dorsett.

Tom Sestito left practice early on Friday with a stiff neck.

Oct 4 - 10:15 AM

Hockey fights are down from 734 to 469 over the last five years.

Canucks winger Tom Sestito thinks that fighting still has a part in the game of hockey and he certainly hopes so as he led the NHL in penalty minutes last season with 213. "I don't think it's being phased out," Sestito said. "It's something that polices the game. You don't want to see people fighting for no reason. But if there's a bad hit or people are getting run, it's a lot tougher when you know you're going to have to pay for something you did." Look for Sestito, who led the NHL in majors with 19 and was tied for the lead in misconducts with seven, to be at or near the top of the NHL in penalty minutes in 2014-15 and get 10-15 points as well. Draft him accordingly.

Jan 30 - 8:43 AM

Tom Sestito has been getting some time on Vancouver's top power-play unit lately.

He has three points in his last five games. "This is what I dream of," Sestito said of his increased role. "I don't dream of being a fourth-line guy my whole career. I'm looking for my opportunity and, hopefully, I can seize it." Sestito has amassed 103 penalty minutes, which ties him for the second-highest total in the league.

Tom Sestito's two-year contract is a one-way deal worth $1.5 million.

"I wanted to have a two-year deal and I definitely wanted the one-way," he said. "Being a UFA, I imagine I would been able to get a one-way somewhere but I definitely wanted to be in Vancouver again. I expressed that in my exit meeting and they said they wanted me back, too, so I thought it was going to get done pretty quickly." The Canucks said they were pleasantly surprised with his play after acquiring him off waivers from Philadelphia. He should bring some toughness to the club's lineup next season.
