Observations:

 

March, 2014 – After starting his first full season in North America with the Rangers, Fast was sent down and suffered a high ankle sprain in his third game with the Wolf Pack. He missed allmost two month and returned around Christmas. In the AHL he is playing in all situations, and he is one of his team’s leading scorers. He is tiny and thin, but plays bigger than he is and very physical. Fast plays a speed, puck possession, passing game, but needs to be more selfish and shoot the puck more. He has 53 SOG in 34 games, which is an awful number from a first line player. He also needs to add more muscle. His defensive abilities will give him a real chance to crack the Rangers lineup next fall as a bottom six player. Jozsef Kurtosi

 

April, 2013 – Jesper Fast is an elite skater with impressive acceleration and agility. His speed is combined with a willingness to be aggressive on the forecheck which creates offensive opportunities.  His hockey sense has developed during his time with HV71, and he has displayed the ability to score. Fast’s willingness to go into traffic will serve him well in the North America, especially as he adjusts to the smaller ice-surface. In 2012-2013, Fast scored 18 goals in 47 games in the Elitserien. He has recently made the move to finish the season with the Connecticut Whale, collecting a goal in his first AHL game.

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C+

 

He has offensive upside, and has shown a willingness to play an aggressive game. Fasth needs to build up his upper-body and adjust to a North American style of play to prove he is a top prospect.
