Buzz: Could The Rangers Bring In Jesper Fasth?

Jack Campbell, Jesper Fasth, Nick LeddyJesper Fasth’s team in the Swedish Elite League, HV71, was eliminated from the playoffs and Katie Strang writes at ESPN NY that the Rangers are considering bringing Fasth over to North America.

Fasth is already under contract so there would be no addition to the Rangers reserve list of 50 contracts and would also not require waivers to play for the Rangers.

Strang notes that the Rangers will need to determine whether Fasth would be best served by coming to North America or playing for Sweden, if chosen, in the World Championships in May.

Fasth had one goal and four assists in five playoff games for HV71.

In the regular season, Fasth scored 18 goals and 17 assists in 45 games.
