For tonight's NHL slate, we have five games on tap, which means fewer options for hockey player picks. There are many different ways to approach these NHL Underdog Fantasy top plays, but I have selected a few of my favorites from the Buffalo Sabres and Boston Bruins. For tonight's slate, we're targeting some star NHL players who should put up plenty of shots and block some shots. Be sure to check out our NHL Tools when locking in your picks on Underdog Fantasy so you can ring in the holiday season with a little extra green.


NHL Underdog Fantasy Top Picks December 13

Owen Power, Buffalo Sabres - HIGHER than 1.5 Blocked Shots

Owen Power isn’t exactly a shot-blocking machine, but he is blocking shots at a much higher rate than last season. During his rookie campaign, he averaged 1.08 blocks and this year he is averaging 1.65 per game. He’s gone over 1.5 blocks in three of his last six games and is matched up against Colorado who love to shoot the puck. The Avalanche are 9th in the league with 32.25 shots per game and Owen will have a ton of chances to get in front of some pucks. 

Brad Marchand, Boston Bruins - HIGHER than 3.0 Shots

Brad Marchand, the captain, is averaging 3.5 shots per game on the season so far. Boston has been shuffling their lines constantly all season and he is currently skating on the second line with Charlie Coyle and Trent Frederic. He is far and away the best option on that line and should be the one taking the bulk of the shot attempts. In his last six games, he has eclipsed 3.0 shots five times and I am looking for him to continue the trend.
