Last night 2010 sixth round pick Jesper Fasth had one goal and four assists for HV-71 while Rangers management was in the stands.
Head European scout Anders Hedberg said that Fasth is definitely a prospect and is going to be a “good player.”
Last week Leslie Treff at HF Rangers Blog ranked Fasth __ in her rankings of the top 20 prospects. She explained that Fasth is someone that is gonna have a spot:
Moving quickly up the list was Jesper Fasth, who put on a show in development camp this summer. Great hands, hockey sense, combined with speed was what we saw over and over again from Fasth. I see him as a second line winger, about two years away from NHL play. The question is whether there will be room for him, but he’s the kind of player, you make room for–he’s that good.
I love this guy. He is my favorite prospect for the sole fact that he plays in Sweden and isn’t seen or talked about that much. There is some mystery about him and the fact that he was a late round pick from Europe makes him so intriguing to me. We have seen what Carl Hagelin, a former sixth round pick from Sweden can do, maybe the Rangers hit another homer with Fasth.
