Fast collected a pair of assists in Monday's 6-3 victory over the Sabres. One of the few skaters who earned head coach Alain Vigneault's praise after Sunday's loss to Ottawa, the 24-year-old rookie didn't disappoint alongside Derick Brassard (five points) and J.T. Miller (one goal). Fast now has three points in as many games heading into the All-Star break. In 47 games, Fast is plus-5 with seven goals and 17 points.
Fast found the netting for the sixth time of the season in a 5-3 loss to the Predators on Monday. Not too shabby for the recently turned 24-year-old Swedish sophomore. Most importantly, Fast is beginning to string together the points, having logged four (two goals, two assists) of his season-total 12 points in last six tilts.
Fast logged an assist in Sunday's loss to the Capitals. More eye-opening was the season-high 17-plus minutes of ice time the young forward logged alongside of second-liners Derek Stepan and Chris Kreider. With this latest four-game spurt (goal and two assists), Fast brings his season total to 11 points in 33 games. As long as he continues to register points, there's no reason to believe head coach Alain Vigneault won't continue to reward him with top-six minutes. Keep a close eye on the 24-year-old Swedish sophomore.
Fast scored an empty-net goal to seal the win Tuesday against Edmonton. Fast notched goal number five, making that nine points for the season. Playing on the Rangers' second line, the young winger appears to be adjusting well to the NHL game and needs one more goal to tie his career high from last year.
Fast netted his fourth goal of the season in a 4-1 win over Ottawa on Sunday. The 24-year-old is showing signs of life after going pointless in seven straight in November. Sunday's empty-netter marks three points in the last six tilts for the bottom-six Swede. Fast has four goals and eight points through 26 games played.
