NameFD Salary/PositionDK Salary/PositionEstimated Ownership
Bobby Ryan$5,400 / RW$5,600/ W10-15%
Mark Stone$5,100/ RW$5,500 / W10-15%
Erik Karlsson$7,700 / D$7,600 / D13-17%

Ryan, Stone, and Karlsson have been playing great hockey as of late and have a very attractive match up tonight against Colorado. " The big 3" has combined for 30 points over the Senators last 10 games and have averaged over 3.5 fantasy points per game during that span. Colorado has allowed a total of 155 goals on the year, which ranks 5th highest in the NHL. This game should be very high scoring, so stacking both teams in this game could be a nice tournament option.

Nicklas Backstrom$7,500/ C$6,800 / C10-15%
T.J Oshie$5,700 / RW$5,800 / W2-8%

I know this is a very obvious stack, but I had to talk about them. They will be squaring off against the Minnesota Wild tonight, who have a 1-7-2 record in their last 10 games. The Capitals lead the NHL in Power Play percentage at 24.4%, so look for them to take advantage of a Minnesota squad who ranks 25th in Penalty kill percentage. Ovechkin and Backstrom have combined for 16 points in their last 10 games.

Joe Pavelski

$7,800 / RW$7,900/ C10-15%
Joe Thorton$6,200/ C$5,400 / C7-12%
Patrick Marleau$4,600 / C$5,700 / W2-8%

San Jose will be going up against Calgary tonight, which is why I like Thorton, Marleau, and Pavelski. The Sharks have a 22.5 Power Play percentage, which ranks 4th in the NHL. These 3 guys will be going at it with the 1st Power Play unit tonight. Calgary ranks 29th in Penalty Kill percentage, so don't be surprised if the Sharks put a lot of points on the scoreboard. In San Jose's last game against the Chicago, all three of these guys were able to score at least one point on the board, and I wouldn't be surprised if they did it again tonight.

Ryan Getzlaf$8,000/ C$5,700 / C7-12%
Rickard Rackell$7,000 / C$6,100 / C5-10%

These are definitely not the most appealing names on the slate, but I really like the position the Ducks are in tonight. They will be going up against the Blue Jackets, in what should be a very high scoring game. The Blue Jackets have allowed a total of 170 goals on the year, which ranks highest in the NHL. They also have the 2nd most penalty minutes in the NHL at 663, so I am a fan of stacking the Ducks 1st power play unit. The Mighty Ducks are also the hottest team in the NHL, as they are coming into this contest with an 8-2 record in their last 10 games!

All over the Sharks tonight, and love Ottawa as well. I will be countering your Ducks call in my GPP article, but they are a solid line as well.
Ducks have been hot! Watch out!
