The NHL gives us a nice six game slate Monday night that is loaded with some great value picks and some all-stars that can anchor your lineup.
Here are several top players and teams to stack to build a winning lineup in tonight’s action
Tyler Seguin ($7600), Dallas Stars – Seguin is an elite asset in all fantasy settings. The Stars take on the Rangers tonight who rank 31st in the league in defending against centers. Seguin is averaging 5 shots on goal in his last 8 games. Win or lose tonight the Rangers have a slim chance in slowing Seguin’s fantasy production.
Nathan Mackinnon ($6700), Colorado Avalanche – Mackinnon is the Avs best scoring option, he leads Colorado with 33 points and is having the best season of his career. The Avs take on the defensively flawed Penguins that have dropped 2 of their last 3.
Patrik Laine ($6600), Winnipeg Jets – The Canucks visit Winnipeg tonight, a matchup that has seen the Jets win 7 of the past 8 meetings. The young sniper has 4 goals and 5 helpers through his past 5 games. His recent surge has seen his fantasy value sky rocket in the last two weeks.
Teams to Stack
Anaheim Ducks – Ducks host the Hurricanes who are winless in their last 5. Corey Perry ($5700) leads Anaheim with 22 points and is riding a 4 game streak during which he has collected 3 goals and 3 assists, while Adam Henrique ($4900) has begun his career with the Ducks with a five-game run that includes three tallies and three assists.
Washington Capitals – The Caps have won eight of their last 10 and just went 4-1 on a crucial home stand. Alex Ovechkin ($8000) can easily be your anchor tonight, he also major parts of the Capitals’ recent success. Ove leads the NHL with 21 goals and has been surging of late with points in 7 of his last 8 games. Winger Tom Wilson ($3800) is on fire with 7 points in his last 3 games. Defensively Dmitry Orlov ($3300) is riding a 3 game point streak
