Let the Good News Come out

None of the prospects were in action on Monday night but we still have news to report on as Bobby Sanguinetti is starting to reap the rewards of his outstanding performance last week. We are awaiting to hear from the CHL as we believe Sanguinetti will win that weekly award as well

So from Aaron Bell and the great folks at the OHL here is the press release:

The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Brampton Battalion defenceman Bobby Sanguinetti is the Boston Pizza OHL Player of the Week for the week ending Sunday November 11 after scoring six goals and four assists for 10 points in three games.

Sanguinetti started the week with a goal and an assist and was named the game’s third star in a 7-2 win over the Owen Sound Attack on Thursday. He scored a goal and added a pair of helpers and was named second star in a 4-3 loss to the Sudbury Wolves on Friday and on Sunday, he became the first defenceman in team history to score four times in one game when he did it against the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors. He also added an assist for his second five-point game of the season and was named first star of the game.

The 19-year-old native of Lumberton, New Jersey leads all OHL blueliners with 15 goals and 34 points in 20 games. Sanguinetti, Owen Sound’s fourth round pick in 2004, was a first round pick of the New York Rangers in 2006.

Not enough then how about from our friends at USA Hockey as Carl Hagelin and his Michigan Wolverines are now the number one team in College Hockey:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The University of Michigan received 21-of-34 first-place votes and a total of 491 points to claim the top spot on the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Men’s College Hockey Poll for the first time this season, after sweeping the University of Alaska Fairbanks in a home series last weekend.

Miami (Ohio) University (479), which garnered 12 first-place votes, fell one spot to No. 2, while Michigan State University (430) picked up the remaining first-place vote and stayed at No. 3. The University of Denver (398) and the University of North Dakota (377) rounded out the top five.

St. Cloud State University made its poll debut this week at No. 13, while the University of Massachusetts returned to the poll at No. 14 after a four-week absence.

NOTES: The University of Michigan is atop the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Men’s College Hockey Poll for the first time since November 21, 2005.

The bad news is both Maine (Billy Ryan) and Michigan Tech (Jordan Foote) both fell out of the top 15 after both teams were swept.
