Center Hugh Jessiman (In the system 2005-2009)
Drafted in 2003, Rangers fans are still upset a decade later. He never suited up for the team, and that's all that needs to be said about that. It appears he's finally given up on North American hockey to perhaps cash in on what's left of his disappointing career.
Center Fedor Fedorov (2005-2006)
Fedorov played in 3 games for the Rangers in 2005-06. Sergei Fedorov's younger brother never stuck with the Vancouver Canucks, and it didn't work for him in New York either. He's been in the KHL ever since.
Defenseman Bobby Sanguinetti (In the system 2006-2010)
The hope was Sanguinetti would be the top-flight offensive defenseman the Rangers have lacked since Brian Leetch was traded. After an underwhelming season as a bottom-pairing defenseman with the Carolina Hurricanes, he signed a two-year contract with Atlant Moscow this offseason.
Defenseman Dmitri Kalinin (2008-2009)
Kalinin appeared in 58 games for the Rangers before being traded with Prucha and Dawes for Derek Morris. After only managing three goals between 2007 and 2009, he signed with Ufa Salavat Yulayev. He now plays for SKA St. Petersburg.
Defenseman Ivan Baranka (In the system 2004-2008)
Baranka only played one NHL game, but it at least included an asisst on one of the ugliest goals of all-time. The 6'3" defenseman had big upside, and the Rangers used a second-round pick on the WHL product in 2003. He left for the KHL in 2008 and never looked back.
Defenseman Sandis Ozolinsh (2005-2007)
Hearing Ozolinsh's name brings back some of the best hockey memories the 1990s had to offer. He was a part of the Rangers return to the NHL Playoffs in 2005-06 after going seven seasons without a berth. While he's hardly the player he once was, he will play for Dinamo Riga next year—the aforementioned Marcel Hossa's team.
Defenseman Andrew Hutchinson (In the system 2007-2008)
A part of the Matt Cullen trade, Hutchinson never suited up for the Rangers despite an elite season with the Hartford Wolf Pack in which he scored 18 goals and 46 assists in 67 games. He now plays for Barys Astana.
Defenseman Alexei Semenov (Training camp invite, 2009, 2010)
While general manager Glen Sather and Semenov had different ideas as to why, Semenov opted for Russia instead of the Rangers during training camp in 2009.
Goaltender Chris Holt (In the system 2005-2008)
Holt never materialized in the NHL, but he's found a home in Russia. He only appeared in one game for the Rangers, in relief. He spent most of his time with the Rangers bouncing between Charlotte of the ECHL and Hartford in the AHL.
