Around the Farm: Fasth’s season ends, becomes option for RangersMarch 22, 2013, by
Jesper Fasth’s season in the SEL came to an end yesterday, dropping Game Five of their first round series to Linkopings by a score of 6-1. Linkopings, the 7th seed in the playoffs, won the series 4-1 over Fasth’s 2nd seeded HV71. In the previous ATF, we noted that Fasth would become an option for the Rangers if HV71 were to lose. Fasth is already signed to an ELC, and it is no secret that the Rangers are trying to get their two Swedes (Fasth and Oscar Lindberg) over to the US. I believe Fasth still has one year left on his deal with HV71, so that might be a minor hiccup.
