Trevor Zegras (ANH) (C) – $5,800

  • Arguably the most skilled player in the NHL and must see TV despite being only 21 years old. Trevor Zegras has been hot as of late and almost has a point per game in his last 14 games (13 points). Playing close to 20 minutes of ice time, he is my favorite play in a very good matchup. The Blackhawks traded away Flower and now left with Lankinen as their starting goalie who has allowed close to 4 goals a game. I will be jamming in as many Ducks as I can tonight on this 4 game slate.

Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $10,200

  • The Toronto Maple Leafs have a massive team total and the only team projected to score over 5 goals today. Pricing is up there for everyone but the player I can’t fade is Auston Matthews on both sites. The Devils played last night and should be tired for their matchup tonight. I expect Daws to be out tonight and have the Devils play their backup.


Trevor Zegras (ANH) (C) – $3,700

  • 5.8k on FD is what I expect for Zegras and he is 2.1k cheaper on DK. He is a lock for me on DK and close to a must play for me over on FD.

Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $9,200

  • Lock on both sites.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Cale Makar (COL) (D) – $7,100
  • Max Comtois (ANH) (W) – $3,900
