Triumph Posted December 22, 2014 Share Posted December 22, 2014 (edited) Okay, we should all know at this point that Tim Sestito does not have a goal as an NHL player. He's played 89 games in parts of 7 seasons, all of them as a forward, and he has yet to score a goal. This is futility almost unmatched in NHL history. Gordie Dwyer is the only forward with more games played and no goals, but Tim Sestito has more time on ice according to hockey-reference.com. What's even crazier about this scoring drought is that it's not like Tim Sestito doesn't score in the AHL - he has 57 goals in 278 games as a Lowell/Albany Devil, which isn't going to win any awards, but it's still about 16 goals per 80 games. It's also not like Sestito doesn't play when he's up here either - he averages just short of 10 minutes a game. This thread will be devoted to evaluating Tim Sestito on a game by game basis to see how close he comes to scoring each game. I suspect we'll be seeing more of him given the injuries to the team. Against Washington he had a wrap-around that had about 0 chance of going in but he was also very close to a deflection goal - as I recall, he didn't touch the puck, but if he had it would've been quite a chance. I'd rank this last game a 7 on the Sestito-Almost-Scored graph. Edited December 22, 2014 by Triumph Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
