Welcome to Wednesday's 3-game NHL Slate. We have a smaller slate with a ton of good options to choose from though. If you’re rocking with just one lineup, you’ll have to make some choices. You can build daily fantasy hockey lineups on DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo Fantasy for Wednesday, January 10th, but before you build those NHL daily fantasy lineups, don’t forget to check out our NHL DFS projections, the NHL Value Finder, and the NHL DFS lineup generator.

Favorite Goalies to Use for DFS Lineups

Adin Hill, G, Vegas Golden Knights

I'm going to take the path less traveled today in this small 3 game slate and be contrarian on the goalies! Adin Hill isn't even confirmed yet by the way but this really applies to any of the Vegas netminders for tonight are road underdogs. Colorado shoots the puck at an alarming rate, 33.8 times per game at home over the past 30 days to be exact. They are an offense that is scary I get that but the Vegas defense surely can't go on allowing 4+ goals per game, they just aren't built that way. I think they hold their own tonight in a big time matchup and a crazy high ceiling for the goalie that starts. 

Cayden Primeau, Montreal Canadiens

This play is purely a fade the Flyers at all costs right now so don't think I am jumping on the Habs bandwagon Chris Morais. The Flyers at home the past month are scoring just 2.2 goals per game but are posting 36.2 shots and that's a fantastic couple of trends for a DFS goalie. The Flyers are in shambles, it was only a matter of time honestly but let's kick them while they are down and get some Habs love going because let's face it Primeau isn't Jake Allen at least. 

Recommended DFS Skaters

Highest Expected Goal Totals 

Dallas Stars vs Minnesota Wild (3.75)

Colorado Avalanche vs Vegas Golden Knights (3.7)

Philadelphia Flyers vs Montreal Canadiens (3.38)

Favorite Skaters to Use for DFS Lineups

Jack Eichel, C, Vegas Golden Knights

Huge game for the Golden Knights and Eichel tonight against Colorado and believe it or not I am siding on the Vegas side of spending up at center. Nathan MacKinnon is an animal I know but Eichel seems to have the better matchup and is coming off a 34.4 DFS performance against the Islanders. 

Travis Konecny, W, Philadelphia Flyers

Montreal is allowing the 4th most DFS points to right wingers this season and Konecny is the only Flyers player going right now worth a damn. Over the past 5 outings he has 26 shots on goal and 7 points, he is the entire offense right now, I am not joking. The team around him is falling but its too good a matchup to ignore. 

Tyler Seguin, W, Dallas Stars

Seguin always seems underpriced to me in DFS and when he is rolling like he is right now its a free square in your lineups. In the last 5 games he has 8 points and 3 outings of over 20+ DFS points and tonight is another great chance to stack some stats against a Wild team allowing the 7th most DFS points to right wingers on the season. 

Thomas Harley, D, Dallas Stars

With Miro Heiskanen out for the time being its next man up for the Stars and that man right now is Harley. He has moved into the top powerplay unit and has 2 points in the last 2 games thus far running that role. The Stars are going to pummel this Wild team that is just having a awful unlucky of a season right now so let's jump on this play.
