Just a few weeks ago we were celebrating Tom Sestito's two goal performance in a win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Yesterday the Flyers placed the winger and goaltender Michael Leighton on waivers. While Leighton did clear waivers, Tom Sestito was claimed by the Vancouver Canucks. Leighton will head to Adirondack.
The Flyers also announced that they have signed their 2nd round pick, goaltender Anthony Stolarz, as well as free agent Brandon Alderson. Both contracts were NHL entry level contracts.
Alderson, a 21 year old right winger, is currently playing in the Ontario Hockey League. He has 57 in 59 games played this season in the OHL, with 25 goals and 32 assists.
