Hello hockey fans, we have a six-game main slate today and I am here to share with you my favorite goalies, team stacks and value plays. 

 

Goalies

Petr Mrazek

The Canes are a Stanley Cup contender this season and they have their starting goalie back and healthy. Mrazek is 3-0-1 since coming back and he has allowed only seven goals and has earned a shutout during that span. The Preds are ranked 26th in offense so all things considered, Mrazek is an elite play in all formats. 

Anton Khudobin

The Jackets are projected to score only 1.9 goals this evening and Khudobin is 3-0-2 in his last five while allowing only eight goals. The Stars should win this game fairly easily today so lock and load Khudobin in all formats. 

Teams to Target 

Carolina Hurricanes

The Canes own the 10th-ranked offense and the Preds own the 15th-ranked defense but where things really stand out, is Carolina’s #1-ranked PP vs.Nashville’s #27-ranked PK. 

Vincent Trocheck has been awesome this year as he has 19 goals and 17 assists in only 33 games. Dougie Hamilton has six goals, 28 assists and averages 3.3 shots per game, which is best amongst defensemen and Sebastian Aho, Andrei Svechnikov, and Jordan Staal complete the top PP unit. 

 

Dallas Stars

The Stars are ranked 18th in offense but they have moved up a lot of spots over the last couple of months and the Jackets are ranked 27th in defense and they are simply not good. 

The top line has been one of the best lines in hockey recently and rookie Jason Robertson has four goals and two assists in his last five games. Joe Pavelski has 39 points in 42 games and Roope Hintz completes the potent top line.

One-off Value Plays

 

Mats Zuccarello

The Norwegian winger has been blazing hot in his last two games as he has three goals and five shots and two of those goals were on the PP. The Sharks have a bad defense so fire up the veteran winger in all formats as a cheap value play. 

Neal Pionk

Some people were grumbling about the Jets not picking up a top-four point-man at the trade deadline but I’m hearing that they like what they have in stock already. Pionk has three assists, three shots, and three blocks in his last two games while averaging 22 minutes of ice-time. Lock him and load him in all formats.
