Daily Fantasy: Wednesday’s NHL picks
There are nine evening games on tap in the National Hockey League Wednesday, Nov. 26, and the Philadelphia-Detroit (7:30pm ET) game is nationally televised on NBC Sports Network. And an early Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
(FantasyAces.com salaries in parentheses) (all times ET)
Ondrej Pavelec, Winnipeg ($7300 at BUF): Pavelec hasn't won in five starts, but that should chance in a road game against the Sabres. Winnipeg has won seven of their past eight meetings against Buffalo, and the Jets are a perfect 7-0 in their past seven games against a team with a losing record.
Nathan MacKinnon, C-RW, Colorado ($5050 vs CHI): MacKinnon hasn't scored a goal in four games, and he has lit the lamp just once in the past nine games, but he has rolled up six assists with a plus-5 rating over his past three games. He is heating up, and it's just a matter of time before he lights the lamp again.
Eric Staal, C, Carolina ($4600 at FLA): Staal is enjoying his best stretch of the season, posting three goals with five points and an even rating during his current three-game points streak. He has also managed 11 shots on goal (SOG) during the impressive span, and he'll also chip in with an occasional trip to the sin bin, too. In three games against the Panthers last season Staal was good for four assists and a plus-7 rating.
Nino Niederreiter, Minnesota ($9450 vs LAK): Niederreiter has been red hot lately, posting six goals with an assist and plus-2 rating over the past six games. He has been mixed and matched with several different linemates in recent weeks, but he continues to produce.
Justin Williams, Los Angeles ($3900 at MIN): Williams enters play on a five-game points streak, posting two goals with six points and a plus-1 rating during the impressive span. At this price level, he is a solid play in Daily Fantasy.
Brent Burns, D-RW ($5300 vs CGY): Burns has posted three goals with three assists over the past nine games, and he has 15 hits and 15 blocked shots during the span. He does a little bit of everything, and some Daily Fantasy providers allow him to be used as a rearguard or a right wing.
