The New York Rangers have acquired Nicklas Jensen and a 2017 sixth-round pick in exchange for Emerson Etem.

The common thread between Jensen and Etem is that they're former first-round picks that haven't worked out. Jensen is arguably the bigger disappointment though because the 22-year-old has played in 24 NHL games to Etem's 131. The Rangers weren't using Etem much though and they couldn't send him to the minors for more than a conditioning stint without exposing him to waivers, but Jensen can play in the AHL for now.

Sanguinetti has barely cracked the NHL since being drafted in the first round back in 2006, but there isn't much more fantasy value in Jensen at this time. He has just six points in 24 career NHL games, compared to 45 points in 112 AHL games.
