Sanguinetti Wins AHL All-Star Fastest Skater Event

Newyorkrangers.com reports that Rangers prospect Bobby Sanguinetti won the Fastest Skater competition at Monday night's AHL All-Star Skills Competition.

His time of 13.677 seconds for a lap around the ice broke the former AHL record.

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.

...i actually caught some of the skills competition on television last night and while it was nice to see Sangs win the fastest skate he was the only competitor in the hardest shot event not to break 90 mph. Sort of embarrassing and not exactly what the Rangers need on the point on the power play.

I will take 89.7 on the PP if that means he will actually shoot the puck and hit the net......Whats the point of Rosival ahving a blast from the point if he never uses it....
