DraftKings NHL Picks: 12/22/16

Today’s top NHL DFS Picks for DraftKings

 

Goalie:

 Frederik Andersen:($7,900)

Andersen carries a record of 12-8-6 this season. in 11 out of his last 13 starts he has given up two or fewer goals against. Tonight, Andersen is up against an Avalanche team that has some of the worst possession numbers in hockey.

Centers:

Nazem Kadri: ($5,900)

It appears Kadri will get the opportunity to skate with Mitch Marner and James van Riemsdyk tonight. Kadri has adapted to a checking role this season, but still has great upside. This is our chance to take advantage of it at a decent price-tag

Mark Scheifele ($7,100) 

Scheifele has cooled off recently with just four points over his last seven games. However, this is a talented young player who is putting up almost a point per game pace with 30 points in 32 contests this year. In a matchup with Vancouver he is worth the investment.

 

Wingers:

Taylor Hall: ($6,800)

Hall has eight points over his last 10 games, (3G 5A), Hall is going up against a very good Philadelphia Flyers team tonight. However, the Flyers are playing back-to-back so Hall’s speed should be a factor.

 Filip Forsberg: ($5,800)

Forsberg has easily been one of the biggest disappointments in the NHL this season. I mean, just five goals!?! really? 19 total points in 32 games… for a kid with this skill set this is not acceptable. However, with goals in back-to-back outings and the favorable matchup against the LA Kings on the horizon Forsberg is in play tonight.

Bryan Rust: ($4,700) Rust has six goals and three assists over his last 10 games and gives you cheap exposure to Sidney Crosby.

 

Defenseman:

Matt Dumba: ($4,000) Dumba Has six points over his last 10 games and is featured on Minnesota’s number one power-play unit.

Justin Schultz: ($5000) Schultz has definitely found a home in Pittsburgh, after being booed out of Edmonton.  The guy has caught fire recently. With 14 points in his last 10 contests. including: five goals and nine assists.

 

Good luck, in tonight’s DraftKings NHL contests!
