After Fast's 2 goal and 1 assist performance against the Flyers, Mika Zibanejad said that Fast puts himself in good spots on the ice and works hard. (MSG)
Chris Kreider said that Fast earns every chance that he gets, works hard around the net, wins battles and "plays the game the right way." (MSG)
Kreider added that Fast was an "instrumental" part of the team. (MSG)
Asked about his recent play, Fast said that he is just trying to play a "hard" game and is lucky to get the points he has. (MSG)
He added that he thinks his style of play fits more on a checking line but that he is capable of being moved up from time to time. (MSG)
Alain Vigneault was asked if Fast's recent play has taught him anything and responded, "I haven't learned anything that I didn't know. Quickie is a competitor and a smart player, plays at both ends of the rink." (MSG)
Fast, 26, is in the first-year of a three-year deal that has a cap hit of $1.85 million.
