At NYRangers.com, they profile 2010 sixth round pick Jesper Fasth as part of the “20 Prospects In 20 Days” feature.
Rangers scout Anders Hedberg said that Fasth has a great work ethic but that he is probably at least two years away from coming to North America.

As soon as the Rangers took Fasth last year, he jumped to the top of my list in terms of Rangers prospects. When you take a guy that seems so far off the board, you make it seem like you know more than another team does about Fasth and reading this, it seemed like the Rangers did.
His excellent performance at the WJC in December and January only served to reinforce that Fasth could end up being a 6th round steal for the Rangers.
