Top Jesper Fast News

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Provides pair of assists

    Fast notched two assists, five shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Ducks.

    Fast helped out on the first and third goals of Jordan Staal's hat trick. It's been a solid start to April for Fast, who has a goal and three helpers in his last four games. The 30-year-old forward is up to 29 points, 87 shots, 99 hits and a plus-19 rating while maintaining a middle-six role throughout the season. He needs one point to reach the 30-point mark for the third time in his nine-year career.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Closing in on career numbers

    Fast collected two assists in Saturday's 7-2 rout of the Blues.

    Fast doesn't move the fantasy needle much in most formats, but he does have 25 points in 65 games this year (11G, 14A). With 17 games left to play, he's got a chance to surpass his previous career high of 33 points from the 2017-18 season when he was with the Rangers. For now, he continues to skate primarily on the Canes' third line with Nino Niederreiter and Jordan Staal, averaging almost 15 minutes of ice time per game.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Serves helper in win

    Fast added an assist in a 2-0 win over the Avalanche on Thursday.

    Fast helped out on the go-ahead goal put away by Ethan Bear with 14:20 remaining in the third period. The right winger has 22 points in 57 games this season, with seven points over his last 15 contests.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Contributes helper

    Fast notched an assist and went plus-2 in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Fast set up Tony DeAngelo's game-tying goal just eight seconds into the third period. The 30-year-old Fast has cooled off a bit since the start of January with two goals and two assists in his last 13 outings. The Swedish forward has 16 points, 54 shots on net, a plus-8 rating and 55 hits through 43 appearances. As more of a defensive forward, he shouldn't be expected to see more than middle-six usage.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Quietly putting up career numbers

    Fast scored his ninth goal of the season in Friday's 6-3 win over the Rangers.

    Now with 14 points in 37 games, Fast is currently on track to eclipse the 30-point mark for the first time in his career. For those of you in deeper fantasy formats, give him a look if you're in need of scoring help.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Nets goal in Friday's win

    Fast scored a goal on two shots and added three hits in Friday's 6-3 win over the Flames.

    This was Fast's first point in three games since the holiday break. The Swede has done a solid job as a depth scorer for a talented Hurricanes team. He's up to eight goals, 13 points, 40 shots on net, 46 hits and a plus-5 rating in 32 contests. He'll likely continue to serve in a middle-six role, and his physical play boosts his profile in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Returns from COVID-19 protocols

    Fast cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Thursday, per Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer.

    Fast recorded one goal and three assists through his last two performances prior to landing in the league's protocols.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Lands in COVID-19 protocols

    Fast was placed on the COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Fast has 12 points through 29 games this season, including four in his last two appearances. Assuming he is asymptomatic, the 30-year-old winger could possibly return in time for Monday's tilt against the Panthers.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Four points in last two games

    Fast scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-1 win over Los Angeles on Saturday.

    Fast's goal was the game winner; it came on the power play when he redirected Jaccob Slavin's shot early in the first period. He had eight points in his first 27 games, and has put up half that in his last two games. Fast suddenly has a goal and three helpers in wins against Detroit and L.A. This pace won't continue, but he's really on a roll.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Two helpers in win

    Fast picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Red Wings.

    Both points came in the first period, as the two teams traded goals in a game that wasn't decided until the final frame. It was Fast's first multi-point performance of the season, and it hopefully marked the end of a slump that had seen the 30-year-old manage only one assist over his prior 15 games. With Carolina missing a number of key forwards due to COVID-19, the team could use more offense from the former Ranger.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Slides assist

    Fast logged an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Flyers.

    Fast set up Steven Lorentz for a goal at 11:14 of the second period. The 29-year-old Fast is enjoying a hot start to the season with five goals and two helpers in 12 contests. The Swede is more of a secondary scoring option in a deep Hurricanes forward group, but he's added 22 shots on net, 23 hits and a plus-8 rating.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Collects game-tying goal

    Fast scored a goal on four shots and led the team with four hits in Wednesday's 4-3 win over Chicago.

    Fast tied the game at 3-3 just 17 seconds into the third period, beating Marc-Andre Fleury five-hole to finish off an odd-man rush in transition. It was the fourth goal in nine games for the 29-year-old Fast, who scored six times in 46 contests all of last season. Based on his early pace, Fast's career high of 13 goals, set in 2017-18 with the Rangers, could be in jeopardy.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Opens scoring Saturday

    Fast scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 3-2 win over Nashville.

    Fast broke the ice just over six minutes into the game, leading a rush in transition and snapping the puck past Juuse Saros from the left faceoff dot. It was the second goal in as many games for Fast, who scored just six times in 46 contests in his debut campaign with Carolina in 2020-21.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Scores on Opening Night

    Fast scored a goal on his only shot and dished out three hits Thursday in a 6-3 win over the Islanders.

    Fast was the recipient of a bit of good fortune, getting credit for a go-ahead goal in the first period when Jaccob Slavin's sharp-angle shot deflected off Fast's body. The 29-year-old Fast had six goals and 19 points in 46 games for Carolina last year after spending his first seven NHL seasons with the Rangers.

It was Fast's first goal of the playoffs and snapped his personal 22-game scoring drought that dated back to early April. The 29-year-old has three points and just eight shots on goal through 10 playoff contests.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Logs power-play assist

    Fast notched a power-play assist and three hits in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Lightning in Game 1.

    Fast helped out on a Jake Bean goal 1:41 into the third period. The 29-year-old Fast only averaged 1:09 per game on the power play during the regular season, but he saw 1:38 of ice time with the man advantage during the first round. The Swede has just two assists, seven shots on goal, 14 hits and a plus-2 rating through seven playoff contests.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Delivers helper

    Fast recorded an assist, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Predators in Game 2.

    Fast helped out on a Warren Foegele in the final minute of the contest. The 29-year-old Fast put up 19 points in 46 regular-season contests, his lowest output since he had 14 points in 58 games during the 2014-15 campaign. The Swede will likely be more of a physical presence in the bottom six -- he's not expected to do much scoring.

    Fast (lower body) will be in the lineup for Monday's tilt with Chicago, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Fast has missed the last five games and he'll suit up Monday for the first time since April 22. The 29-year-old winger has 18 points in 41 games this season. He'll skate in a bottom-six role.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Could be back Monday

    Coach Rod Brind'Amour expects Fast (lower body) to make his return Monday against Chicago, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Fast hasn't played since April 22. He has 18 points in 41 games with the Hurricanes. Those relying on Fast in the fantasy realm should double-check his status before puck drop, but he can tentatively be penciled into lineups.
