With only two NHL games on the docket for tonight, DraftKings DFS hockey players have an incredibly limited player pool to choose from. But there are superstars, and value buys to be had on the Line Stack front. Let’s take a look:
Tyler Seguin ($9,000) – Jamie Benn ($8,300) – Patrick Sharp ($6,200)
The Stars’ top line is one of the most lethal scoring trios in the league, with Seguin and Benn sitting second and third in the league in scoring respectively behind Patrick Kane. The two Stars’ superstars are tied with Kane for multi-point games this season with nine each and the two have combined for 22 goals this season as a point-pair. Sharp snapped a two game scoreless streak on Saturday and has eight points in his last 10 games. The Stars welcome the Senators to Dallas on Tuesday night and this trio has a combined 36 points on home ice this season, so find a way to get them in your lineups.
Kyle Turris ($6,300) – Bobby Ryan ($5,600) – Mike Hoffman ($5,200)
The Senators top line have formed a strong scoring trio of their own since being put together after Ryan was moved up to replace Mark Stone on the top line. Turris and Ryan are tied with Erik Karlsson for the team lead in shots with 50, with Hoffman right behind the three with 45. Ryan has points in eight straight games and is second to Karlsson with 19 points. Turris has points in back-to-back games and leads the team with 10 goals, and Hoffman has managed 16 points in 16 games this season. The Senators are actually in the top-five in the league this season in road scoring, potting 3.25 goals per game away from home so look at this line for your roster in what could be a high-scoring affair.
Corey Perry ($6,600) – Ryan Getzlaf ($6,400) – Rickard Rakell ($3,400)
The Ducks top line has seen a rotation this season, but Getzlaf and Perry are beginning to turn around their slow starts. Perry has nine points of his 12 points this season in his last 10 games. Getzlaf likewise has managed eight points in his last nine games and has two multi-point efforts in his last four games. Rakell has looked solid since being moved up to the Ducks top line and despite being held scoreless his last two games, he has put up four points in his last six outings with 14 shots on goal in those games. The Ducks are struggling this season, but they welcome the Flames who rank last in the league in goals against per game this season, and are allowing an average of 3.64 goals against per game on the road this season, so consider the Ducks’ top-liners for your roster on Tuesday night.
Johnny Gaudreau ($6,200) – Sean Monahan ($5,700)
The Flames top-scoring duo are two of the most dynamic, young scorers throughout the NHL and are the driving the Flames in offense right now. Gaudreau has put up 20 points through 21 games and sits inside the top-10 in the league in assists with 15. Monahan leads the team with seven goals and sits second to Gaudreau on the team with 15 points of his own. Calgary has had their problems offensively this season but this duo will see plenty of chances for production on Tuesday night.
