Jesper Fast will wear #17 for the Rangers this season because the #19 that he has worn previously will be retired in honor of Jan Ratelle in February. (NYR)
Prior to #19, Fast also wore #12 in 2013-14 and then wore #91 in the 2014-15 preseason before finally landing on #19 when the regular season started.
John Moore was the last Ranger to wear #17. Before Moore, Mike Rupp wore #17 during his 8 games in 2012-13 and before Ruff it was worn by Brandon Dubinsky.
Fast is likely to miss the start of the season after undergoing hip surgery earlier in the summer.
