RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -The Carolina Hurricanes picked up two former first-round draft picks in separate trades Saturday during the second day of the NHL draft.

Carolina acquired defenseman Bobby Sanguinetti from the New York Rangers for two picks after obtaining center Riley Nash from Edmonton for another selection.

Sanguinetti, the Rangers' first-round pick in 2006, had four penalty minutes in five games with New York. The 22-year-old defenseman had nine goals and 29 assists in 61 games with Hartford of the AHL.

Edmonton took Nash in the first round in 2007 and he played the last three seasons at Cornell.

The Hurricanes sent the 46th selection to the Oilers, who drafted Slovakian defenseman Martin Marincin. The Rangers received the 157th overall pick this year and the 2011 second-round selection the Hurricanes acquired from Washington in the trade for Joe Corvo.
