Scouting The NHL DFS - Tuesday,  January 17

Cash in on DraftKings and FanDuel with Mr. Pucks' NHL DFS picks of the day!

What a day of hockey yesterday. We watched as my sleeper pick Ward hit the nuts and Eichel destroyed his competition. The Pens and Caps scored an unheard of 15 combined goals, and Tampa peeked past the Kings. I hope that we can generate as much excitement today as yesterday m

Mr. Pucks’ Profound Three

I was asked if these are three players people should use. What I suggest is building around at least one of my three choices. Let us take a look at my top three.

Nazem Kadri (Tor) - Center- ($6900 FD / 5700 DK)

Kadri price is too low on Draftkings, so snap him up while you can. Currently, on a five-game point streak (five goals / two assists), Kadri is finally silencing the trade rumors. He will extend his streak tonight against the Sabres. Get him and his second line, linemates in your lineups.

Alexander Wennberg (Cbj) - Center- ($7600 FD / $5500 DK)

Wennberg and his Blue Jacket team get a rematch against the Hurricanes at home tonight. Wennberg needs to step his game up as he has not scored a goal since December, 29th. He will find the back of the net tonight and take five shots with an assist.

Ryan Getzlaf (Ana) -Center- ($7300 FD / 6500 DK)

Getzlaf and his Ducks get a Tampa team on the second half of a west coast back to back. The Lightning have already said Vasilevsky will be in net, who played horribly in Bishop's absence. Getzlaf will pick apart the Lightning and help chase Vas out of the net.

Mr. Pucks’ Sleeper play of the night

Mika Zibanejad (Nyr) - Center - ($5700 FD / $5900 DK)

This will be Zibanejad first game back from injury since November, 20th. People will fade him for that reason, but I think he picks right up where he left off. He will be less than 5% owned today. Get him in your lineup for GPP and watch him make you proud.

Teams To Target

A few teams to target and build your lineups around.

Toronto Maple Leafs -  Top three lines are great plays with Zaitsev on defense

Anaheim Ducks - Love the top line and the second line. Fowler and Lindholm on defense

Columbus Blue Jackets - I will have a lot of the first line, with some second line action as well. Jones and Werenski on defense

New York Rangers - I think they will be chalky. Top two lines are great plays. McDonagh on defense.

Minnesota Wild - Target the top line and 3rd line in gpp. Any defender.

Chicago Blackhawks - Anisimov/Panarian will go off tonight. Keith on defense.


**As always check before puck drop to see starting goalies, as things change**

I will list a few goalies and if you want them in cash, gpp, or both.

Gibson - Cash/GPP

Bobrovsky - Cash/GPP

Rinne - GPP

Johnson- GPP/ Cash

Lundqvist - GPP

Anderson - GPP
