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.

Fast recently played his 100th game as a Hurricane, which has only added to the incredible season he is having.

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: 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: 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 -- that's the kind of non-scoring production that can add solid depth to a fantasy bench.

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.

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.

Carolina Hurricanes: Jesper Fast needs to step up

With the new season on the horizon, the Carolina Hurricanes are expected to be one of the better teams in the National Hockey League. With a deadly top six, a deep blueline, and two very talented netminders, the Canes have the pieces to make some noise. But teams cannot rely on top-end talent in the playoffs and require the depth that makes teams special. Someone Carolina will need big time in this regard is Swedish winger Jesper Fast.
