Hurricanes Recall Former Rangers #1 Pick Sanguinetti

The Carolina Hurricanes announced they have recalled former Rangers 2006 first round pick Bobby Sanguinetti and he could make his season debut tonight at Madison Square Garden.

Sanguinetti ranks second on the Charlotte Checkers (AHL) and seventh among all AHL blueliners this season with 35 points.

The Rangers traded Sanguinetti to the Hurricanes on draft day in 2010 for a 5th round pick that year (Jasper Fasth) and a 2nd rounder in 2011 (traded to Calgary as part of Tim Erixon deal).

…i thought for sure Sanguinetti was going to be a legit offensive defenseman in the NHL, but injuries seriously derailed his development.

…not a bad job by Sather turning an injury prone defenseman into two of the Rangers more highly regarded prospects.
