Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Collects first postseason goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast scored a goal on his only shot in Saturday' 6-4 loss to Tampa Bay in Game 4.

Fast slammed home a loose puck on top of the crease to give the Hurricanes a 2-1 lead 5:09 into the second period. 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Suiting up Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Not ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast (lower body) isn't expected to play Thursday against Detroit, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports.

Fast will miss a fourth consecutive contest Thursday and remains without a timetable for his return. Check back for another update on his status once he's given the green light to rejoin the lineup.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Unavailable Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast (lower body) won't play in Tuesday's game against the Stars, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Fast will miss a third straight game. Teuvo Teravainen returned from concussion protocol Tuesday, so Fast will likely return to the bottom six once he's cleared. The 29-year-old has accrued 18 points through 41 games this year.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Remains out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast (lower body) will remain sidelined Monday in Dallas, as coach Rod Brind'Amour said the team won't change any skaters compared to Saturday's lineup, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Fast will sit out for a second straight game as a result of his injury. The well-rounded forward has six goals and 12 assists in 41 games, but Fast's full 200-foot impact isn't captured on the stat sheet. He won't have to wait long for his next opportunity to return, as these two teams are scheduled to meet again Tuesday.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast (lower body) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Panthers, he reports.

It's unclear how long Fast will sit out. He should be considered day-to-day for the time being. Steven Lorentz will fill into Fast's spot on the top line next to Sebastian Aho on Saturday.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Comes up clutch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast scored a goal on three shots, dished an assist and posted five hits in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Blackhawks.

Fast had a hand in Vincent Trocheck's opening tally in the first period. In the final minute of the third, Trocheck returned the favor with a shot that led to Fast scoring on a rebound for the game-winning goal. The 29-year-old Fast has five goals and 16 points in 30 appearances this season. He's seeing second-line usage in recent games, so he could be worth a look in DFS as a value option.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Two-point effort Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

He helped set up Brady Skjei for the eventual game-winner midway through the first period before lighting the lamp himself in the second. Fast has been thriving in a top-six role while both Teuvo Teravainen (upper body) and Vincent Trochek (upper body) have been sidelined, picking up a goal and five points over the last six games.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Multi-point night against Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Red Wings.

Both of Fast's points came in the third period, as he drew a helper on Jordan Staal's game-winning goal and later added some insurance with his third goal of the season. The former Ranger is a terrific two-way player, but his middle-six role is more important to the Hurricanes than in the fantasy realm.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Finally lights lamp for Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast scored two goals, one on the power play, in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Lightning.

He kept Carolina in the game for two periods, but eventually the team needed more offense than Fast could provide by himself. The former Ranger had gone 11 straight games without scoring a goal to begin his tenure with the 'Canes, but he does have five points in the last nine games and his spot on the second power-play unit gives him some fantasy appeal in deeper formats.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Adding helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast notched an assist in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Stars.

It was Fast's second helper in four games since being activated from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol in early February. The 29-year-old Swede is still averaging roughly 13 minutes per game skating on the Canes' fourth line, so he still offers marginal fantasy appeal at best in most standard formats.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: No longer in protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast was activated from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Tuesday, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Fast will first need to get back to practice, so he won't play in Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks. The Hurricanes' next scheduled game is Thursday in a rematch against the Blackhawks, so the 29-year-old will aim to return at that point.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Stays in virus protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast (COVID-19 protocol) won't be available for Saturday's game against the Stars, Michael Smith of NHL.com reports.

Fast will miss a second straight game due to his placement in COVID-19 protocol. Prior to his absence, the 29-year-old posted no points and nine hits through three games.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Out for Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast (COVID-19 protocol) won't dress in Thursday's game against the Lightning, Fox Sports Florida reports.

Fast is one of five Hurricanes sitting out due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol. The 29-year-old's next chance to play is Saturday against the Stars.

January 23, 2021 05:28 PM
Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Added to protocol list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast was added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list Saturday, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

The Hurricanes now have six players on the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list. Carolina's game against Tampa Bay on Tuesday is currently still scheduled to take place, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the NHL announce a postponement in the coming days.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Joins Hurricanes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast signed a three-year, $6 million contract with the Hurricanes on Saturday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

The Rangers selected Fast in the sixth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, and he put up 147 points over 422 games with the team. Last season, the 28-year-old winger produced 12 goals, 17 assists and 125 hits over 69 games. The Hurricanes could use that physicality in their bottom six, and Fast will be a fixture in the lineup during the upcoming season.

Rangers' Jesper Fast: No-go for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fast (undisclosed) won't play in Tuesday's Game 3 against the Hurricanes, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

Fast is still dealing with the undisclosed injury he suffered during Saturday's Game 1 when he took a huge hit from Carolina's Brady Skjei. The Rangers are facing elimination, so if they're unable to extend the series Tuesday, Fast will finish the campaign having totaled 29 points in 70 contests.
