The Flyers have waived backup goalie Michael Leighton and forward Tom Sestito.

The Leighton decision seems to indicate that Brian Boucher will be the backup for the Flyers behind Ilya Bryzgalov. 

If Leighton and Sestito are not claimed off waivers by noon tomorrow, the Flyers can send them to the Phantoms, their minor league team. 

Leighton had played only one game for the Flyers this season, a 5-1 loss at Tampa Bay on Jan. 27.
