|Corey Locke |
Rangers prospects Bobby Sanguinetti and Corey Locke each had an assist on Tuesday night in the AHL All-Star Game at Portland, Maine.
Locke, however, went home a bit happier than his Hartford Wolf Pack teammate Sanguinetti, since Locke's Canadian All-Star squad rallied to beat the PlanetUSA All-Stars 10-9 in an overtime shootout. The Canadians scored a remarkable four goals in the final 12:12 of regulation, tying the game at 9-9 with only 18 seconds remaining.
Locke, a center who signed with the Rangers last summer and has appeared in multiple AHL All-Star Games, picked up his assist at 2:18 of the second period. He had the primary helper on defenseman Nolan Baumgartner's goal that cut the PlanetUSA team's lead to 5-4.

PlanetUSA, a team comprised of AHL stars born outside of Canada, got the next two goals, including one that Sanguinetti set up.
Sanguinetti, the defenseman who won the AHL's Fastest Skater honor with a record-breaking time in Monday night's All-Star Skills Competition, had the lone assist on Keith Aucoin's tally at 7:50 of the second, making it a 7-4 lead at the time.
In addition to his assist, Locked had four shots on goal. Patrick Rissmiller, a member of the Rangers organization playing in Grand Rapids this season, also had a shot on goal for PlanetUSA.
Locke and Sanguinetti resume their season when the Wolf Pack host Manchester on Friday night.
