With Michal Rozsival (facial injuries) in question for tonight, the Rangers have made the unexpected decision to call Bobby Sanguinetti up from Hartford. The New Jersey native and first-round draft pick frm 2006 would make his NHL debut if he plays.
Have to say I’m surprised by this. I know Sanguinetti is Hartford’s leading scorer with 20 points in 39 games, but I always got the sense he needed more time. Then again, why not if he’s played well? He could even be an option for the power play.
The other part to consider: what does it say about Corey Potter that they’ve given Sanguinetti the nod ahead of him?
