Rangers Prospects' 2009-10 Statistics

It was a big night for Rangers prospect Bobby Sanguinetti on Monday in Portland, Maine.

Bobby Sanguinetti
Sanguinetti, one of two Hartford Wolf Pack representatives at the AHL All-Star Classic, won the Fastest Skater competition at Monday night's AHL All-Star Skills Competition.

The defenseman, a New Jersey native and lifelong Rangers fan selected by the Blueshirts in the first round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, didn't just win the event. His time of 13.677 seconds for a lap around the ice broke the former AHL record. Finishing second at 13.790 was Lars Eller of Peoria.

Sanguinetti's speed earned the PlanetUSA team, a group of players born outside of Canada, a point in the Skills Competition standings, although the Canadian squad would go on to win the overall event 18-12.

Sanguinetti also took part in the league's Hardest Shot event, where he registered a top speed of 89.7 mph. Blair Jones of Norfolk won that event at 100.7 mph.

Earlier this season, Sanguinetti made his NHL debut with the Rangers on Nov. 27 at Tampa Bay. He has played five NHL games in 2009-10.

Two other members of the Rangers organization took part in the Skills Competition on Monday. Corey Locke, a center with the Wolf Pack, was on the winning Canadian team, while Patrick Rissmiller, playing this season in Grand Rapids, was a teammate of Sanguinetti's on the PlanetUSA squad.

Sanguinetti, Locke and Rissmiller will all take part in the league's All-Star Game on Tuesday night.
