0 128


Tyler Seguin – $7,700 Draftkings $8,600 Fanduel
Match up – Calgary Flames

Seguin Has been off to a great start and it’s no surprise that he has 11 points in ten games. He is averaging 20.2 points per game on fanduel. They will be going up against Calgary who is averaging 3 goals against per game. Tyler Seguin is one of the best in the game and with a lot of games being great match ups. I will target this one, I don’t have a lot of faith in Mike Smiths Goal tending ability. So I will be Stacking with Jamie Benn and Alexander Radulov


Nick Foligno – $5,900 Draftkings $6,600 Fanduel
Match up – Winnipeg Jets

Tonight is a very weak night for good center picks in NHL DFS. Nick Folingo is starting to heat up with 3 points in his last two games. Going up against the Winnipeg Jets who are ranked 24th in the league averaging 3.49 goals against per game. Folingo is also on the top power play unit to add to his value, I think he will be a great cash game play tonight.

Nico Hischier – $4,500 Draftkings $5,200 Fanduel
Match up -Ottawa Senators

The rookie is having a great season in the NHL thus far. The Devils are going up against the Senators who played last night. Nico is a little bit of a risky pick but I think he may be fairly low owned. Having 5 points in his last 3 games is what is intriguing to me so I’ll throw him into a line up or two of mine tonight on Draftkings or Fanduel.

Vladimir Tarasenko – $7,900 Draftkings $8,200 Fanduel
Match up – Carolina Hurricanes

Tarasenko Is my Lock of the night., I will be stacking him with Jaden Schwartz who is also red-hot. Vladi has 5 points in his last 4 games and is going up against a tired Hurricanes team. The Hurricanes played The Maple Leafs last night and won, but they had to work hard to get that win. So I am banking on the Hurricanes to be sluggish tonight against the rested blues offense.


Filip Forsberg – $7,200 Draftkings $8,400 Fanduel
Match up – Chicago Blackhawks

With 12 points in his last 9 games, I really like Forsberg against the Blackhawks. Nashville is 6th in the NHL for power play percentage at 26.3% (10 goals). Forsberg is on the top line and on the top powerplay with that being said I love his price on Draftkings. I’m not a fan of it on Fanduel though.

Mark Stone – $5,400 Draftkings $5,500 Fanduel
Match up – New Jersey Devils

The Senators played last night and may be a little tired, but they also have a lot of momentum after destroying the Ducks. Stone has 3 goals and 1 assist in his last 3 games. Tonight will be a good test for the Senators who are starting to get on a roll. The Devils will have Kinkaid in net who is 2-1 and has played well but at $5,400 I don’t see how I could pass up on taking Stone.


Notable mentions – Jaden Schwartz, Jamie Benn,  Artemi Panarin,  And Victor Arvidsson



Erik Karlsson – $7,000 Draftkings $7,300 Fanduel
Match up – New Jersey Devils

When it comes to Devastating defenseman Erik Karlsson is at the top of the list. He has only been back for 5 games and he already has 8 assists. I’ve already gone into depth about the match up against the Senators and the Devils. So I am going to say this, if you are wanting to pay up for a defeseman Karlson would be the one.


Seth Jones – $5,100 Draftkings $5,100 Fanduel
Match up – Winnipeg Jets

Jones is probably one of the most underrated d-men in the NHL. I love his price tonight against the jets. Jones isn’t afraid to shoot pucks or block shots, he has 26 shots on net and 18 blocked shots in 9 games! Needless to say for just $5,100 ill be taking him in my line up tonight.


Mattias Ekholm– $3,600 Draftkings $4,300 Fanduel
Match up – Chicago Blackhawks

$3,600 for a defenseman on the top line and the top and on the 2nd power play unit. He is getting a ton of ice time, even though he only has 3 point this season, he is still averaging 9 fanduel points per game. If you need to save some money to pay up for a forward then I’d start with Ekholm.

Notable mentions – Duncan Keith, Zach Werenski, John Klingberg



Jake Allen– $8,900 Draftkings $8,200 Fanduel
Match up – Carolina Hurricanes

Jake has been outstanding this year, Allen is having a .912 save percentage. Playing against a tired Carolina Hurricanes team I like this matchup. Allen is 5-2-1 on the season.


Sergei Bobrovsky  – $8,000 Draftkings $9,500 Fanduel
Match up – Winnipeg Jets

When it comes to DFS hockey we all know goal tending can make or break your night (as a lot of us found out last night). Sergei is rocking a .934 save percentage and going against a Winnipeg team who is 26th in the league with only 23 goals scored. with tonight’s tight slate a goalie you can have some faith in is nice and Sergei for me is a goalie I trust.
