John Cavanagh- Jesper Fast
Jesper Fast isn’t a household name among hockey fans, but he has become loved by many Rangers fans. Fast isn’t flashy, and isn’t going to wow you with his skill set, but every team could use a player like Jesper Fast.
Fast is as reliable as they come, and has secured coach Alain Vigneault’s trust in almost any situation. He kills penalties, has great skating ability, and plays a hard-nosed physical game.
Fast can also skate anywhere in the lineup. Fast has been effective on the fourth line, and can also provide a role in the top six.
With a new team starting out like Vegas is, the Golden Knights will want to take someone they can trust, and someone who is steady and consistent.
That is why they will make sure Fast is taken from the Rangers, leaving the Rangers to fill a gaping hole in their lineup.
