Jesper FastAlain Vigneault says that he and the players have a lot of faith that when Jesper Fast is on the ice he will make the right play.  (Newsday)

Joe Micheletti said recently that Vigneault couldn’t say enough good things about Fast, calling his work ethic “exemplary” and saying that he goes to the net and he gives it his all on every shift.

Right before the season Vigneault said, “when he is on the ice, coaches and management have a lot of trust that he will do the right thing. In his role it’s more of a 3/4 line player who will help us kill penalties.”

Fast has three goals and three assists this season in 31 games, 59 hits and an average of 11:25 per game.

Fast has a Corsi of 46.2% but is starting 44.84% of his shifts in the neutral zone, 32.94% in the defensive zone and 22.22% in the offensive zone.  (Puckalytics)
