Andrew Hammond (G), Senators

FanDuelDraftKingsOpponentGAASV%QS%Opp Goal TotalMoneyline

If you don't remember Andrew Hammond last season, he casually went 20-1-2 when Craig Anderson was injured. Hammond posted excellent numbers, and although they are unsustainable, he is capable of shutting down his opponents. New Jersey is posting a poor 1.83 goals per game, and Ottawa is allowing an average 2.67 goals per game. Vegas has the Sens as -165 favorites, and with the way they are scoring goals, Hammond stands a good shot at a win, and keeping the pick out of the net. His .783 QS% was impressive last season.

Top Skaters

Joe Pavelski (C, RW), Sharks

$7,800$6,800Kings18:592.0910.45Even - 1 PP - 12.5

Going just a couple of price tiers down, Joe Pavelski stands out as an excellent swerve from the big named players. Los Angeles has allowed 2.80 goals per game this season, and have an average power play killing percentage. They look a bit uninspired to start the season, and we have seen the Sharks dismember them once already. Pavelski has five points in six games, and skates with the top line of a team generating 2.67 goals per game.

Zach Parise (W), Wild

$8,700$7,900Blue Jackets18:301.8310.89Even - 1 PP - 13.5

Minnesota has a 3.5 goal total tonight, and that is no surprise facing Columbus, who is allowing 4.86 goals per game. A wild stack is worth it tonight, starting with Zach Parise. Minnesota has a 25% power play conversion rate, and Parise headlines the top unit. I am expecting him to pay off his high price tag tonight, and while he should be owned at a decent rate, he is a swerve from those popular wingers.

$6,100$5,500Stars27:101.087.55Even - 1 PP - 12.5

Kris Letang has a ton of upside for a defenseman, and he logs ice time like nobody else. He also is not afraid to shoot the puck, and can tack on points even if he doesn't score a goal. He has averaging 9.60 DK points per 60 so far this season, and is an awesome play on DK. I might want to avoid on FanDuel with the +/- against the high flying Stars. He lines up with some of the best, and has multi-point upside.

Patrick Kane (W), Blackhawks

$8,400$7,700Panthers19:303.318.60Even - 2 PP - 12.5

Patrick Kane is averaging 1.17 points per game this season, and is logging ice time in the range we want. He skates on an excellent power play unit, while the Panthers have the 6th worst power play killing percentage in the league. Chicago has been fairly average so far this season, so their big named stars should go under the radar when comparing to Dallas, San Jose, and Pittsburgh. Kane is 12th in the league in points, and I am expecting him to add to his tally tonight.

Value Plays

Mikael Granlund (C - MIN) FD: $4,900 DK: $4,400

With the Wild projected the highest goals scored of the night, this first line center enters the slate as a great value play. Mikael Granlund works into a Wild stack, playing with Parise. The former first round pick should capitalize against a bad Columbus team.

Brent Seabrook (D - CHI) FD: $4,600 DK: $4,000

With Duncan Keith on the shelf for 4-6 weeks, Brent Seabrook will move up to the top power play unit, giving him a boost in minutes, as well as a chance for points. His price is cheap for the new role.

Mike Hoffman (W - OTT) FD: $5,600 DK: $5,100

Mike Hoffman has seven points in six games, playing on an overlooked Ottawa first line. His price is cheap with what his recent production has been. New Jersey ranks in the middle of the league in goals against, while Ottawa is generating three goals a game.

David Perron (W - PIT) FD: $4,500 DK: $4,400

David Perron is still one to take a chance on at this price. He is a second line player on even strength, as well as the power play unit. Perron is setup for a big night with his surrounding line mates, and is one to keep rolling out until his price comes up, although he has not given much reason for it to.
