12/10/17 | Alain Vigneault said on Saturday night of Fast, "I've always thought of him as a hard-working, two-way hockey player that is one of our guys that plays the right way in all situations. He is a real good example, he never gives up a play, puts his body on the line to get the job done. I'm hoping that will rub off on a couple of other guys because he is a real good example there."
