Lou Venditti- Jesper Fast
When the Rangers lose Jesper Fast in the expansion draft, I will be the least surprised person on Earth. Fast has grown into himself and his role tremendously over the years, and as every Rangers fan knows, life is suffering.
As soon as a player gets comfortable with the Rangers, they are inexplicably ripped away. It’s a true shame, because even Alain Vigneault likes Fast (who he affectionately calls “Quickie”)!
Fast has been one of the Rangers’ most reliable penalty killers, as well as a bottom six anchor, since joining the big club in 2014. He sees the whole ice, and plays defensively as well as he does offensively.
Every single team in the NHL could use a player as versatile and reliable as Jesper Fast, and the Golden Knights are going to be able to snag him for nothing.
