Rome native Tom Sestito is coming home – for a little while, anyway.

The Vancouver Canucks on Sunday assigned the 27-year-old forward to the Utica Comets of the AHL for a conditioning assignment. Sestito has one assist in two games with the Canucks this season. 

The Comets are back home after a southwest road trip last week, in which they went 2-1 in three overtime games (at Oklahoma City, at Texas and at San Antonio). 


Utica hosts Rochester on Wednesday, Toronto on Friday and Syracuse on Saturday. All games start at 7 p.m.
