Tomas Hertl (SJ) (C) – $6,200

  • Hertl has had 2 down games in a row, possibly due to celebrating a bit too much after a massive contract signing for 8 years, 8.2 million per year. Hertl is a very skilled player who can create chances and put up points. He can definitely have a ceiling game here against a rebuilding Arizona Coyotes. I am all over the Sharks and will be locking in Hertl on both sites.

Thatcher Demko (VAN) (G) – $7,800

  • Demmer had just no help the other night against the Flames giving up 4 goals while being pulled. There’s just so much he can do for his team and will need more support if they want to make a playoff push. For tonight, Demmer is up against the Sabres and should pick up the win, especially in a must win situation.


Tomas Hertl (SJ) (C) – $5,300

  • Lock on both sites.

Timo Meier (SJ) (LW) – $7,200

  • Timo is too cheap on DK not to play him. Pairing him up with Hertl gives you a positive correlation for your cash game builds and adding Burns to the mix will also help. I am also considering him on FD for 8.7k so take the discount over here on DK.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Timo Meier (SJ) (W) – $8,700
  • Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (W) -$3,800


  • Patrick Kane (CHI) (RW) – $6,800
  • Brent Burns (SJ) (D) – $5,800
