Jesper Fast’s time in New York may be coming to a close with the expansion draft looming. The New York Rangers will most likely expose Fast, and there is every reason to expect Vegas to consider bringing him aboard.
Jesper Fast over the past three seasons has earned the reputation of an excellent bottom six ‘grinder.’ While being recognized for his play on the penalty kill and ability to forecheck, Fast has become valuable to the New York Rangers, and other teams have begun to notice.
However, fear not, as the good news is there are players that can fill that void immediately come October if the Las Vegas Golden Knights select the Swede in the Expansion Draft. It’s far easier to replace a player like Fast than a twenty goal scorer. The options are all easy to obtain or are already in the organization.
