Tom Sestito has signed a two-way contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Tom Sestito (upper body) returned to action on Saturday.

Sestito drew the wrath of the Toronto crowd when he bumped into netminder Frederik Andersen on Saturday, drawing a penalty for goaltender interference and knocking Andersen out of the game with a suspected head injury. Sestito has 48 penalty minutes in only 12 games with two assists. He led the NHL in penalty minutes in 2013-14 with 213 so you know where his limited fantasy value is.

Tom Sestito has been sidelined with upper body injury.

That's a tough break for anyone in a pool that rewards Sestito's talents as he's posted 16 hits and 46 PIMs in 11 games this season. Consider the physical winger day-to-day, for now.

Tom Sestito has been suspended for four games for boarding Winnipeg defender Toby Enstrom.

Sestito racked up 20 minutes in penalties in just 1:02 of playing time Wednesday night. He got a five-minute major and game misconduct for his hit from behind on Enstrom. Sestito will be eligible to return Mar. 17 against New Jersey, but it wouldn't be surprising if he was back in the minors by then.
