Fast has been his steady self this season, putting in the hard work in the corners and never taking a shift off. All that hard work has lead to Fast putting up three goals and eight assists for David Quinn’s squad.
With Fast out of the lineup, forward Boo Nieves will slide into the lineup. Lias Andersson is back today against the Golden Knights after a one-game absence as a healthy scratch on Friday. Kevin Hayes, who was banged up in Friday night’s contest, appears to be in the lineup as well.
Nineteen skaters are warming up for the @NYRangers so they'll make a decision on Hayes after warmup. According to the lineup they just provided, Hayes is in, Lias Andersson is the fourth line left wing, with Boo Nieves at center and Ryan Strome on the right.
