The 3:00 pm NHL trade deadline came and went this afternoon with the Flyers opting to keep their first place club intact for a run at the Cup, but they did pull off a minor trade that landed winger Tom Sestito who will be assigned to the Phantoms. According to the Blue Jackets website, Sestito is listed at 6' 5'', 228. He's a big dude. Let's take a look at some of his work. [video below]

As you can read from Sestito's tweet this afternoon, he likes to drop the gloves and knows the Philly fans will appreciate him doing so. If he ever ends up skating here.
