TORONTO - The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Plymouth Whalers' left wing Tom Sestito is the OHL Player of the Week for the week ending December 10, 2006. The 19-year-old winger from Rome, New York scored six goals and had seven points in three games last week.

Sestito - a Columbus Blue Jackets' draft choice - helped the Whalers to a 7-1 victory on the road, in London on Thursday night, over the Knights. He had a natural hat trick in the contest, including the game winning goal and also added an assist. He was also named first star of the game for his efforts. The next night Sestito was once again the game's first star after recording is second hat trick in as many nights as the Whalers defeated Sudbury 5-3, at home. The back-to-back three-goal games give Sestito four hat tricks on the season. He currently leads Plymouth with 20 goals in 28 games.
