Robert "Bobby" Sanguinetti (born February 29, 1988 in Trenton, New Jersey) is an American professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Playing career

In the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, he was selected by the New York Rangers with the 21st pick in the first round. Bobby, who grew up a Ranger fan, has said he tries to model his game after a former Ranger great Brian Leetch, and even wears 22 to pay respect to Brian Leetch (who wore 2).

Sanguinetti had a breakthrough year during the 2006–07 season, leading OHL defensemen in goals scored (23) and was among the top defencemen in points. The Owen Sound Attack were eliminated in 4 games in the playoffs, but Sanguinetti played well, with 3 goals and 3 assists in the 4 games. With his team eliminated from the playoffs, Sanguinetti was called up to the Rangers' AHL affiliate team the Hartford Wolf Pack. In 7 regular season games for the team he put up 5 assists and had 1 point in the playoffs. Bobby was signed to his first professional contract in April 2007 by the New York Rangers.

Sanguinetti was promoted to the Rangers for their game on January 10, 2009, but he did not play and was returned to Hartford the following day. In 2009, Sanguinetti was selected to the AHL's all-star classic playing for PlanetUSA along with teammate Artem Anisimov. Sanguinetti ended up with having the hardest shot for PlanetUSA in the hardest shot competition.

Sanguinetti's peewee team, the New Jersey Rockets, won the 2001 Tier 1 USA National Championship.
