At the time it was thought that Fast would spend this season in Sweden with HV71 and then come to North America next season.
In an interview with Hockey Sverige, Fast said that he is happy to spend this season in Sweden as he needed another year to play there after he lost most of last season to an injury, but that the plan is to come to North America next season.
The Ranger signed Fast to a contract back in May.
Fast has three goals in five goals so far for HV71.
