That gives Fast three goals and seven points in 32 contests this season. He might have some fantasy value in a couple seasons, but he's not worth owning in standard leagues at the moment. Jan 28 - 11:00 AM

Jesper Fast will be a healthy scratch for the Rangers Monday night against the Stars.

Fast had played in every game for the Rangers since November 11th and was becoming a regular fixture in the lineup until tonight. J.T. Miller will take Fast's spot in the lineup Monday in Dallas but look for Fast to get back in soon enough as Head coach Alain Vigneault said that "Jesper’s been playing well. He’s been doing what we want on the [penalty kill], but I just felt tonight against this team that this was the right thing to do."

Jesper Fast scored a goal in the Rangers' 6-3 loss Monday night.

Fast didn't score a goal in his first 21 NHL games, but he's now scored in back-to-back contests. We wouldn't get too excited about his recent success, but he does have some offensive upside, so he's worth keeping an eye on.

The New York Rangers have sent Jesper Fast to Hartford of the AHL.

Fast was a healthy scratch in his last two games and he needs playing time as sitting in the press box is not good for his future. The talented Swede had 17 goals and 17 assists in 48 AHL games last season.

Jesper Fast practiced on Friday after injuring his wrist blocking a shot on Thursday.

Fast pronounced himself 'fine' after practice and you have to assume he will be good to go on Saturday. He had 17 goals and 34 points in 48 AHL games last season but was held off the scoresheet in 11 NHL games. He is likely good for 25-30 points this season in the NHL.

Forward Jesper Fast scored twice in the New York Rangers' 6-3 triumph over the Philadelphia Flyers in preseason action Monday night.

Fast was the surprise of last season's camp as he managed to break with the Rangers before eventually going to Hartford of the AHL at the end of October. He returned in April and was pointless in 11 NHL games after scoring 17 goals and 34 points in 48 AHL games. He wasn't the only rookie to score twice in New York Monday. Ryan Haggerty did, as well. Anthony Duclair, a 19-year-old forward, had his second goal in as many games and added an assist for the Rangers, while another rookie forward, Kevin Hayes, picked up two assists. Chris Mueller also scored for New York. Duclair, Haggerty and Fast scored in a span of less than four minutes to put the Rangers up 3-0 before the game was 10 minutes old. Three rookies scored for Philly -- Taylor Leier, Jason Akeson and Shayne Gostisbehere. Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist made 22 saves in his first full game of the preseason. Flyers goalie Steve Mason stopped 31 shots.

Jesper Fast is looking to crack the Rangers lineup out of training camp.

Fast was the surprise of last season's camp as he managed to break with the Rangers before eventually going to Hartford of the AHL at the end of October. He managed to return in April and was pointless in 11 NHL games after scoring 17 goals and 34 points in 48 AHL games. "Of course I’m more comfortable this year, knowing the guys, the staff and what the expectations are," Fast said. "I’m more confident." Look for Fast to stay with the Rangers out of camp but once again play in both the NHL and AHL this season.
