Boom! The NHL Is back! If you have been reading my blog for a while you know I do these for the Premier League, but now we are bringing it to NHL Hockey, Monday-Friday we will have the Three MUST get players for your daily fantasy needs. Let's get it into it!
Craig Anderson: Ottawa Senators - 7,900
Craig Anderson and the Ottawa Senators host the Toronto Maple Leafs as we kick off the NHL season. The most important thing for a goalie to do in DraftKings is to win, and I think with Derick Brassard (more on him later), Erik Karlsson and Bobby Ryan they have more than enough to get to win against an exciting yet young Maple Leafs team. Would be foolish to get anyone else.
Brent Burns: San Jose Sharks - 8,200
Brent Burns and the Sharks start their season out against their most hated rivals, the LA Kings. San Jose is going to look to start the season well as they had a disappointing loss to the Penguins in the Stanley Cup Final. I think due to being at home, and on an emotional high of winning the World Cup of Hockey, Burns will be up for this game.
Fun Fact: Burns had 31 points (13 goals and 18 assists) in 45 games against the Kings.
Derick Brassard: Ottawa Senators - 5,700
Derick Brassard is going up against a Toronto team which seems like the perfect game to have his hometown debut. Toronto's defense was awful last year as they let up the fourth most amount of goals (246) and with the 13th best penalty kill unit, Brassard will have chances to score and set up goals to Erik Karlsson, Bobby Ryan, and Mike Hoffman. Also, he isn't as expensive as other centers, so it does leave you some more cash to spend on other players, which is always a plus.
Feels good to be talking about hockey again, this will be a daily post to help you guys make some money and know exactly who you want to look out of for the night ahead.
Thanks for the continued support, keep reading and of course keep spreading the blog. Much Love.
