A player like Fasth just goes and gets the puck. He is always around it. Fasth is smaller, slower and his shot can not be compared to Kreiders, still Kreider will get 2 opertunitys in a game and a player like Fasth will get 6...
I agree 100% with this assessment, Fasth seemed to always be looking for the puck and if his teammates aren't able to get it to him, he'll go out and get it himself. That's a quality I love in a young player. Also, he was rarely out of position in this tournament, being a puck hawk is one thing, but combined with not being a defensive liability makes for a bright future for this kid.
