Talent Analysis

A feisty competitor, Sestito has carved out a niche for himself as an energy/checker that a coach can feel comfortable with putting on the ice in key shutdown situations.  He doesn’t have much offensive upside and is very susceptible to taking minor penalties.  Another typical character, depth, utility player in the system but one that has impressed the organization with his work ethic.
