NHL DFS FanDuel Picks

October 11/22

Slate Summary

  • Happy NHL season opener in North America! Weird that the Predators and Sharks opened the 2022-2023 season last weekend but we have hockey back from London.
  • Kevin Fiala will be playing for his new team today. The Swiss native was traded this summer and signed a big contract which was well deserved. After coming off a career high, 85 points. He will be slotted on the top line with Koptiar and Kempe. This line is really the only dangerous line the Kings have to offer and expect them to play heavy minutes.
  • Viktor Arvidsson is my favorite mid tier option on both sites. During his first year with the Kings, he had 20 goals playing close to 17 minutes per game. He solidified his role as a top 6 forward on the team and gets a few minutes on PP2. $5,200 is a great price for him as he gets 3.5 shots on net.
  • The VGK vs LA game should provide more offense compared to the other game. I plan to have more exposure for skaters and stick with Igor in net on both sites. Reilly missed about 30 games last season but when he was healthy, he was productive. For a player playing on the top line and PP unit, $4,400 is a bargain. It was really a toss up between Fiala and Smith as my favorite play but I ended up going with the player coming off his career high 85 point season.
