Jesper Fast has seen his playing time decline compared to 2015-16.

Fast is averaging 13:10 minutes per contest, down from 14:56 minutes last season. We might see that change as the season progresses, but it's a troubling sign. Fast has no goals and four assists in 10 games in 2016-17.

Jesper Fast registered two assists in the Rangers' 3-2 overtime loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Mar 28 - 9:39 AM

Jesper Fast has been seen limping in the last couple of games.

The Rangers play four games in six days so do not be surprised if Fast gets to sit out at least one game. "I think the injury is something that he can play through at this time," coach Alain Vigneault said. "What my medical staff is saying, it should heal in due time. So I don’t think it’s anything severe." Fast has 10 goals and 24 points in 64 games this season so his fantasy value is negligible.

Jesper Fast (illness) ended up traveling to Pittsburgh ahead of Thursday's game against the Penguins.

Mar 3 - 11:40 AM
