Bobby Sanguinetti, D- (2006 first-round selection, twenty-first overall)
Born in Trenton, NJ, Bobby Sanguinetti lived across the Hudson River from the Garden, being a Rangers fan.
A defenseman who tries to model his game after Rangers great and Hall of Famer Brian Leech, Sanguinetti is still searching for a team that will give him an opportunity.
He spent four seasons in the Rangers organization, spending time in Hartford for most his career. He played in five games for the Blueshirts.
After the 2009-2010 season, he was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes for their second round pick in 2011 and sixth round pick in 2010. Sanguinetti played in 40 games, scoring six points (two goals, four assists).
In 2013-2014, he played in the KHL, where he scored seven points in 15 games.
Sanguinetti is in the Vancouver Canucks organization, playing with their AHL affiliate Utica Comets, who lost the Calder Cup to the Manchester Monarchs for the 2014-2015 season.
