The Rangers have announced that they have recalled Jesper Fast from the Hartford Wolfpack.
In 48 games, Fast 17g, 17a. He also had two goals and an assist in a Wolfpack victory yesterday.
Fast was pointless and a -5 in eight games with the Rangers earlier this season.
…it’s nice to see the Rangers promote some skill from the AHL. Made zero sense to have guys like Boyle and Carcillo playing anywhere near the top 9. I’d love to see Fast get a shot with Richards and St. Loius, unless AV is going to blow up the entire lineup. Although, if Richards is centering St. Louis and Fast, he might need an oxygen tank on the bench because he’s going to be spent after every shift.
…Fast also has eight power play goals this season, so I’d expect to see him get a chance with one of the extra man units. Hey, it can’t get worse.
…unfortunately (for me anyway), the addition of Fast likely means a seat in the press box for Carcillo. While I hate to lose his toughness in the lineup, it’s not like he’s been allowed to do his thing anyway.
