Hey, he has not dropped the H!

For some reason, and its not the first time I've seen stuff like that, his family has always gone by the name Fasth while being listed as "Fast" in the books. So Jesper Fasth's passport has always said Jesper Fast. When he was assigned a jersey in rookie camp, the people who ordered it went by his official name without knowing the name he uses.

What do I know, he could officially drop the H to sound cooler in americanish, but unless I've missed something he has not done so yet. I fear a Marc Stall-warning here for sure.

On a side topic, it will be interesting to hear how the announcer handles his name. Just like with Trevor Glass its mighty annoying for announcers when a player has a name identical to a word used often (the puck hit glass).
