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.

Tom Sestito and Beau Bennett will be scratched against the Coyotes on Friday.
