Jesper Fast scored a goal in the Rangers' 3-2 shootout win versus Carolina.
Fast has four goals and 11 points in 46 contests in 2014-15. While those numbers obviously leave plenty to be desired, he does have a fair amount of offensive upside. He might be worth owning in standard leagues in a couple years. Mar 22 - 10:08 AM

Jesper Fast (knee) will return to the Rangers lineup Monday night against the Predators.

Fast has been out since February 7th due to a knee injury but will be back in the lineup Monday night when the Rangers host Nashville. Fast has limited fantasy value but is an underrated real-life hockey player and will add a lot of value to the Rangers bottom six forwards. He has three goals and six assists in 37 games this year. Newly acquired James Sheppard will not be able to dress Monday so the lineup remains unchanged except for Fast being inserted.

Jesper Fast (knee) is close to returning to the Rangers' lineup according to coach Alain Vigneault.

The 23-year-old has been out since February 8th with the injury. His fantasy upside is limited even when he returns to the lineup. Fast has three goals and nine points in 37 games this season.
Mar 1 - 2:25 PM

Jesper Fast (knee) is expected to be a participant at practice on Sunday.

Fast suffered the knee injury on February 7 and was expected to miss two-three weeks so he is on the long end of the prognosis. Fast should be ready to go on Monday. He has three goals and nine points in 37 games this season.
Mar 1 - 7:35 AM

Jesper Fast (knee) should resume skating soon.

He was riding the stationary bicycle Thursday and coach Alain Vigneault said that "within the next week, he should be skating." Fast hasn't played since Feb. 7 because of a sprained knee.
Feb 19 - 6:13 PM

Jesper Fast no longer needs to wear a knee brace.

Fast hasn't resumed skating yet though. Based on a recent timetable, we don't expect him to return for another week or two. He has three goals and nine points in 37 contests in 2014-15.
Feb 16 - 3:57 PM

Jesper Fast has a first degree sprained knee that will sideline him for two-to-three weeks.

Fast isn't on the injured reserve list yet according to the team's website and Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said that the squad doesn't have plans of summoning another forward in the short term. He has three goals and nine points in 37 games in 2014-15.

Jesper Fast suffered a knee sprain during the Rangers’ loss to the Predators on Saturday afternoon.

Fast left in the second period after a check from Anton Volchenkov. Coach Alain Vigneault says the team will know more about his status in the next few days. He played 6:04 before departing. Fast has nine points this season, but his value goes beyond that — he’s among the team’s best defensive forwards.

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 winger had gone 21 games without a goal. He picked up his first NHL point on Monday so it's been a big week for the youngster as he also added an assist on Saturday.
