Sesito, a center, has played in one NHL game this season, February 28 against the Winnipeg Jets. He notched just over five minutes on the ice.
Tom Gulitti from The Record says that this move likely means that Andrei Loktionov will likely not play tonight.
In his season with Albany, he appeared in 45 games, with nine goals and 10 assists.
The Loktionov assumption is a fair one to make, although it's hard not to notice Sestito's skill set compared with the Devils' opponent tonight: a desperate Rangers team that will definitely have enforcer Michael Haley in the lineup. I wonder if the Devils will dress both Sestito and Krys Barch tonight in case things get out of hand. Hmmm. Regardless, I'd be that Sestito is only in town for a game or two or until either Loktionov is healthy or Henrik Tallinder is taken off injured reserve, whichever comes first.
