Tim Sestito has been sent to AHL Albany.
Sestito was promoted on Thursday in response to Jacob Josefson suffering a groin injury.

In addition to Josefson, the Devils are also currently missing Mike Cammalleri (lower body) and Dainius Zubrus (leg). Dec 22 - 8:34 AM

Dec 16 - 1:28 PM

Tim Sestito has been summoned by the New Jersey Devils.

Michael Cammalleri is dealing with a lower-body injury, so that left the Devils with 11 healthy forwards. With that in mind, Sestito is likely to play on Monday, although it will likely be as a fourth liner. He has six goals and 13 points in 26 AHL games this season.
Dec 15 - 11:02 AM

Tim Sestito (concussion) returned to action on Saturday.

Sestito suffered the concussion on March 20 and while he passed all his concussion tests on March 28th, he only returned on Saturday. The feisty winger played in only his 12th game of the season. He has two assists and managed two hits and two blocked shots to go with three shots on goal in 10:50 minutes of play against the Hurricanes.
Apr 6 - 2:35 AM

Tim Sestito has successfully passed his concussion tests.

Mar 28 - 1:04 PM

Tim Sestito left Thursday's game after being elbowed by Nate Prosser.

Sestito needed to be helped off the ice. "I saw him after the game and he's coherent, he feels all right, but he wasn't able to come back," Devils coach Pete DeBoer said. We'll list Sestito as day-to-day for now.
Mar 21 - 10:05 AM

Tim Sestito has two points and a plus-two rating in four contests since the Devils summoned him.

"I feel confident and my ice time has gone up a little bit," Sestito said. "I'm just trying to be reliable and gain the trust of the coaching staff. It's, obviously, a great feeling when you contribute a little bit." The 29-year-old has played in 74 NHL games. He might manage to stick with the Devils, but he's not expected to have any fantasy value in standard leagues.

Tim Sestito managed to escape a serious injury when he was struck in the jaw by Brandon Prust's skate during the Devils' game against Montreal on Monday.

"I think I just got the heel of his boot," Sestito said. "It could have been really bad, but luckily I escaped with very minimal damage, just a sore jaw." Sestito is still expected to play Wednesday.

The New Jersey Devils recalled Tim Sestito from the AHL on Sunday.

With Adam Larsson on the IR and Ryan Carter banged up, the Devils had an opening. Sestito isn't likely to make an impact in many areas, as he's a lot like his brother Tom: mainly a PIM and hits guy. If that.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 02:03:00 PM

The New Jersey Devils demoted Tim Sestito to the AHL.

That shouldn't come as much of a surprise as Sestito did very little in his six games at the NHL level, failing to register a point, having a +1 rating, four SOG and two PIM.
