NHL DFS Picks December 22nd

NHL is back and we are going to be looking at some DFS options for tonight’s slate. We have a nine-game slate, so there are plenty of options across the board and we should see plenty of scoring.

Also, always, always check to make sure the goalie you pick is confirmed as the starter. Nothing worse than making a lineup, and the goalie not playing. There are plenty of good sources on twitter, and websites where you can get that information.

Regardless if I’m playing cash or GPPs, I always have some stacks going in my lineups. In hockey, most goals are scored with assists, so we want to target players who are either on the same line, or on the same power play unit, or both. So these stacks will include both forwards and defenders while making sure they see plenty of ice time together.

Auston Matthew, John Tavares, Mitch Marner

We have a loaded slate tonight, where Tampa Bay, Washington, Pittsburgh, and Winnipeg are all in action, but you should be looking to spend up on the Maple Leafs tonight. This stack is very, very expensive on both sites, but oh boy, they have massive multi-goal upside. They showed their potential the other night against the Devils, which is what we should be in store for tonight with their 4.08 implied goal total. Of all the expensive stacks we have available tonight, this is the one I want to be taking a stand on. They are massive -260 home favorites against the Rangers, who have a 61 Corsi Against this season, which is third worst in the league. They are giving up way, way too many shots and we should see this Toronto team and their offense run wild tonight with the scoring in both DFS and real hockey.

Andrei Svechnikov, Sebastian Aho, Justin Faulk

His is the first power-play stack for the Hurricanes who are at home and come in with a solid 3.07 implied team total, which should make them a solid GPP option tonight. We know that they Hurricanes love to take a ton of shots with their 68 Corsi For this season which is highest in the league. This stack also isn’t super expensive, so you should be able to pair them off with another team who is more expensive, all while having a solid upside from both units. They are likely going to be seeing Casey DeSmith in net for the Penguins, who have given up three or more goals in three of his last four starts.

Frederik Andersen, Goalie, Toronto Maple Leafs

This one is pretty simple tonight, if you have the salary you should be playing Andersen in net, no questions asked. He is the most expensive goalies on both sites, but also comes in as a -260 home favorite which is highest on the slate by a good margin. He is more of a cash game option for me simply due to his price, I prefer to spend down a bit at goalie GPPs, but by all means, if you are able to spend up for him in any lineup, drop him in there. He has won in back to back starts while allowing only three goals in that span, a level of production he should be able to reach tonight.
