Sanguinetti signed a one-year contract with EHC Kloten of Switzerland on Friday. Despite getting selected 21st overall by the Rangers in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, Sanguinetti has failed to garner a consistent role with an NHL team, though he gave it the proverbial college try. The big defenseman only produced six points in 45 career games between the Rangers and Hurricanes. However, he signed on with the Canucks, providing 16 goals and 24 helpers with AHL Utica in the 2014-15 campaign. Buffalo secured his services last July, but he ultimately was waived. This won't be Sanguinetti's first tour overseas, as he had a stint with Moscow Oblast Atlant of the KHL three years ago. Given his journeyman status, it wouldn't be surprising to see Sanguinetti back in the NHL sometime down the road.
Sanguinetti cleared waivers and was assigned to AHL Rochester on Thursday, ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun reports. Sanguinetti was placed on injured reserve on Oct. 6 with an undisclosed injury, and was always expected to be sent down to AHL Rochester once healthy. Thursday's move would seem to indicate that the 27-year-old defender is in fact now healthy. Sanguinetti registered an impressive 40 points (16 goals, 24 assists) in 61 games with AHL Utica in 2014-15, and could get another shot with the big club at some point this season.
