Hey guys, big NY Rangers fan here. Was watching the Sweden-Czech game the other day and noticed Rangers draft pick Jesper Fasth scored 2 goals. Can't seem to find any information anywhere about this player aside from stats from this season. Can anyone tell me anything about him? Any chance he ever makes the NHL?
Cool, thanks Riddarn. Have you seen him play? Do you think he has NHL potential?
As he plays for my hometown team HV I get so see him quite a bit. The potential is there, but he is a bit rough around the edges as of now. I'd say he needs a few more seasons among men to show his true potential.
He is fun to watch, never stops working and in my opinion got above average speed. Beeing a juniorplayer he will make the typical juniormistakes, sometimes beeing caught out of position on the backcheck. That I believe will be sorted with age.
If he continues to develop I'd say a NHL secondliner with a bit of a stretch. More likeley a thirdliner/energyplayer that chips a few in per season.
