Today's four-game NHL DFS slate is highlighted by Kyle Connor and the Winnipeg Jets taking on Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks. Also don't miss out on some of the great value plays available on the wing today with Jordan Eberle of the Kraken facing the Ducks. As always remember you can use the lineup generator powered by Fanjections to help put your lineup together as well.


Jets at Blackhawks

We should expect the Jets to see a lot of ownership today. You will want to look at Kyle Connor, and Mark Scheifele, but I wouldn’t lose sight of Pierre-Luc Dubois who has four points in his last three games as well as Blake Wheeler, who is a nice value play, who has done the same. You can also look to Adam Lowry who has three points in that span of games, but he likely won’t see as many minutes. For Chicago, Patrick Kane will be the primary play, he has a goal and two assists in his last three games, and he has 14 shots in those games as well. You can pair him with Max Domi if you want to do a mini stack. 

On defence, Josh Morrissey is having a breakout season with 20 points in 19 games. He will likely see a lot of ownership because of his points, but his floor hasn’t been high as he doesn’t block a lot of shots or put a large number of shots on goal. For Chicago, you can look at Connor Murphy as he will block shots, but they currently don’t use a defenceman on their powerplay so we shouldn’t look for anyone to get points from the backend.

We can expect Connor Hellebuyck to get the start for the Jets. He is going to be one of the safer plays today. He doesn’t have a lot of upside as Chicago averages just 27 shots per game, but they also are only scoring two goals on average per game so he should be able to get the win. Petr Mrazek will get the start for Chicago. He hasn’t played well this season, but his ownership will be low. 


Kraken at Ducks

Coming into this game Andre Burakovsky of the Kraken has been red-hot with five points in his last two games. Additionally, Matty Beniers has four points in those two games and both players should be solid plays today. We haven’t seen a lot of production recently from Jordan Eberle, but he is getting time on the top player play unit and has a very nice price today so he could be a good value. The Ducks have struggled to score over their last few games, but Troy Terry and Trevor Zegras are players who are very capable of scoring and having big nights.

Vince Dunn should be the primary target on defence for the Kraken. He is on the top powerplay, and he has points in three of his last five games. With Anaheim, Cam Fowler is on the top powerplay unit for them and he comes at a reasonable price as well.

Looking at the goalies in this one, there is a lot of uncertainty. Martin Jones will get the start for Seattle, but he hasn’t played really well this season, and we are expecting John Gibson to play for Anaheim, but he hasn’t played well either. I would likely avoid the goalies in this one.

Canucks at Sharks

In the last few weeks, the Canucks have gotten their offence going averaging 4 goals per game over the last two weeks. We have seen Elias Pettersson average more than five shots per game over his last three games, and Andrei Kuzmenko has five points in those three games as well. Don’t forget about Bo Horvat either who has scored in three straight games and four of his last five. With San Jose, Timo Meier should always be considered. He has 20 shots in his last three games and has scored four goals and has one of the highest floors in DFS. Logan Couture and Tomas Hertl both have four points in their last three games but don't shoot at the same rate that Meier does, but they should be good plays nonetheless.

Quinn Hughes has been playing well for the Canucks. He has three multi-point games in his last four. For the Sharks, we continue to see strong play from Erik Karlsson. He has points in three of his last four games, and he will shoot in volume and also block shots too. 


We are expecting Thatcher Demko of the Canucks to face Kaapo Kahkonen of the Sharks. Neither goalie has played well this season, but Demko has proven himself to be capable in the past and could be worth a shot today when there are not many strong plays.

Senators at Kings

While the Senators as a whole are yet to live up to expectations, but Brady Tkachuk has played great. He has five shots or more in four of his last five games and points in three of those games. Tim Stützle has also been playing well with goals in three of his last five games and points in four of five. For the Kings, Kevin Fiala has started to settle in for them. He has four points in his last two games and will get top-line minutes and the top powerplay. If you’re looking for value from the Kings Jaret Anderson-Dolan could be interesting. He is coming of a six-shot game where he scored a goal, but he likely won’t see much more than 10 minutes of ice time.

Thomas Chatbot has points in back-to-back games for the Senators, as does Jake Sanderson, and Sanderson especially has had a solid floor with him taking lots of shots and getting three blocks in three of his last four games. Drew Doughty and Sean Durzi both have points in their last two games, but neither has been shooting the puck a lot or blocking a lot of shots. 

Cam Talbot will get the start for the Sens today. He has played well this season but hasn’t gotten the wins. Jonathan Quick should get the start for the Kings. Quick has struggled this season, but his play has been better at home than on the road, and this is a very winnable game for the Kings.
