Jesper Fast had an assist Saturday to bump his scoring streak to eight games.

The Rangers have been a better team since trading veterans such as Rick Nash, Ryan McDonagh and J.T. Miller as they have gone to a youth movement. Fast has 10 points in his last eight games and has 31 points including 13 goals in 67 games.
Mar 25 - 7:58 AM

Jesper Fast had two goals and an assist in a 4-3 loss to the New York Rangers.

Fast banked his first of the night in off of Ivan Provorov's skate and followed that up by being perfectly positioned to pick up Rob O'Gara's rebound to bring the Rangers to within one in the third. The three-point night is a new career-high for the Swedish forward who has now picked up nine points in his last seven games, bringing him to 13 goals and 30 points in 66 games this season. Mika Zibanejad also scored in the loss.

Jesper Fast had a minus-3 rating during Tuesday's 3-0 home loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Fast was on the ice for all three of Patrik Laine's goal, including the empty-netter late in the third period. The 26-year-old now has 10 goals, 11 assists and a minus-13 rating in 58 games this season. The Rangers probably won't provide much fantasy value down the stretch.

Jesper Fast scored a goal in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Fast cut the Rangers' deficit to 2-1 at the 2:41 mark of the second period, but that's as close as they'd come to tying the game. The goal put an end to his 11-game game goal drought. The Rangers forward finished the night with a minus-1 rating, one shot on goal and one giveaway in 16:58 of ice time. Fast now has nine goals and 10 assists in 54 games this season.

Jesper Fast and Jimmy Vesey switched lines on Saturday and it paid off for both as each scored in the Rangers' 5-2 win over New Jersey.

Fast moved up to the Rick Nash-Kevin Hayes line while Vesey played alongside Boo Nieves and Paul Carey. Fast has three goals in three straight games and six in his last eight as he now has seven goals and 14 points in 24 games. He is becoming fantasy-relevant.

It was Fast's first career multi-goal game. He has three markers and 10 points in 17 contests in 2017-18. He's not a major offensive contributor, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him top his career-high of 30 points.

Jesper Fast argued that he didn't return from his hip surgery early because of the Rangers' cold start.

Fast made his season debut on Saturday after the Rangers began the season 1-4-0. They lost again on Saturday, but Fast was active with seven hits. "Of course you want to help the team, but I felt good the last two weeks, just needed to get back to 100 percent to play games," Fast said. "That was the decision we made." He was originally projected to return in late October, so the decision to use him on Saturday did come as something of a surprise. Still, his performance on Saturday was encouraging and he wouldn't be the first player who was able to return ahead of schedule.
