Flyers re-sign Nodl and Sestito
The Flyers have re-signed 24 year old forward Andreas Nodl and 23 year old forward Tom Sestito.
Nodl reportedly signed a two year deal were $845,000 per year. He tallied 22 points in 67 games for the Flyers last season.
Sestito played in 11 games for the Phantoms last season after being acquired from, ironically enough, the Columbus Blue Jackets. He got off on a good foot with the Flyers fans after his first tweet on Twitter after the trade.
