FanDuel NHL DFS Picks – October 15th

Following some hockey on Canadian Thanksgiving yesterday afternoon, Im back to tackle the solid slate that is NHL of tonight.
Lets see if we could knock out some profits early!
C — Auston Matthews (TOR) — $8,800 vs. MIN
By far the centre on the slate, the Maple Leafs and Matthews have a matchup tonight at home against the Minnesota Wild. That is, although the Wild formed up on the end with a shutout of the Ottawa Senators yesterday afternoon. Matthews has been held off the scoresheet because one, but still sits together with six goals in as many games over the season to cooperate with all 29 shots on goal — good to get a whopping 4.8 shots per match. I expected this could be the season when his entire DFS potential is unleashed by Matthews — exceeding and easily meaning shooting a ton of shots on target. Doing this should allow 50 goals this year and probably get close to, or even more than, one to get back. The Leafs have played just two road games this year, also Matthews has gone goal in those two games. That means hes notched six points and five goals in four home games this season. After a pointless night in Detroit, Ill search for Matthews for on the board tonight against a Wild team which has enabled 4.20 goals per match this year even after yesterday shutout.
C — Elias Pettersson (VAN) — $6,500 vs. DET
The Canucks offense is averaging a strong few goals per game in the early going, however it hasnt just been the huge boys getting the task done as Pettersson goes tonights contest against the Red Wings with only 1 goal and two points on the season across four games. Obviously, youre not going to keep the elite Swedish pivot off the scoresheet this much for more after he churns 66 points in just 71 games en route to claiming Rookie of the Year honors last year. Hes not going to stand up a slew of shots on goal as he managed just 144 shots and has just six games this year. However, the Red Wings position 26th with 33.8 shots against per game this season, so maybe his upside is a tiny increased tonight at that section. Shots from Pettersson tonight thinking about the Red Wings back end that is shaky aside, I expect a effort on goal. Detroit has enabled 3.20 goals against per game this year, not a terrible number looking at the October goal spike, nevertheless theyre getting worked in the ownership match to the song of a 45.4% Corsi For%, good for 29th in the NHL. I think the Canucks top line rack up plenty of dream points while doing so and must control the play tonight.
W — William Nylander (TOR) — $6,000 vs. MIN
Next guy up within our Maple Leafs stack is Nylander who had a five-game point streak snapped Saturday in Detroit, but he has probably been the Maple Leafs second-best participant this season behind Matthews. An contract stalemate that lasted until the first of December price Nylander the initial two weeks of this season and his creation cratered to only 27 points in 54 games last season. Typically, a 0.50 point-per-game indicate is a good number for the NHL winger, nonetheless Nylander submitted 0.75 points-per-game with two 60-plus stage seasons in his first two full seasons in the NHL and is capable of raising that mark. Nylander has notched two goals and five points to go along with 14 shots on goal. Nylander, for example his linemates, was an absolute monster in the possession game this year as he owns a large 64.6percent Corsi For% at strength on the campaign. Even when he was seemingly at his worst final season, he posted a big-time 56.8percent Corsi For% in even strength. He is not hockey to the top power play unit using Matthews, however he and Tyson Barrieve left exactly the Maple Leafs nearly equally-used second power play device quite dangerous this year as well. Add this up and I need him.
W — Andreas Johnsson (TOR) — $4,500 vs. MIN
Completing our three-man Maple Leafs stack tonight is Johnsson who will skate next to Matthews and Nylander around the Maple Leafs top line while hammering Matthews about the Maple Leafs best power play unit too. Like last year, Johnsson came out of the gate slow by a points perspective as he had been held off the scoresheet for the first few games of the season before logging a goal and an assist last week. He had been geld pointless at the triumph over the Red Wings on Saturday, nevertheless hed fire shots on goal in that one. Johnsson is averaging 16:47 of ice time this year up to now, a growth of more than three minutes in the 13:40 he averaged a year ago. Skating on top line with a Matthews can do this. Expect his scoring to continue. Last season in mostly a third-line function, Johnsson was outstanding as the year moved forward, observing 35 points on his closing 52 matches of this season, good to get a 0.67 points-per-game pace, outstanding production for a third-line participant that averages over 14 minutes of ice time per game and saw almost exclusive second unit play minutes. Against what has mainly been a fighting Wild defense, let us move ahead and pull some value out of Johnsson tonight.
W — Brock Boeser (VAN) — $7,000 vs. DET
Next person up in our three-man Canucks heap is Boeser whos a man who is going to get some huge numbers when it is all said and done this year. Hes off to a nice start as he is notched a goal and 2 assists through four games on the year to go along with his 12 shots on target also. Boeser was a guy who has posted a large shooting percentage to this stage in his NHL career as hes shot 14.1% throughout the first 144 games of his career, but also comprises an 8.3% mark this season — a number that is guaranteed to improve as the sample size continues to grow. The 22-year-old will skate using Pettersson at both strength and on the Canucks best power play unit where he has scored 16 goals over the past two seasons. Boeser has to skate at a fully-healthy NHL season as he has missed 33 games within the first two seasons of his career, but hes nevertheless approached the 30-goal mark both times. If this man can stay healthy, hes definitely a participant that may challenge for 40 aims, especially playing alongside an elite play-making centre in Pettersson. This is genuinely a weak Red Wings defense and also this Canucks line has the firepower to be all over them tonight.
W — Oskar Lindblom (PHI) — $4,800 vs. CGY
The Flyers and Flames get together tonight in a rare tilt from Calgary and I feel that the street team could do some damage in this 1 tonight. To begin with, the Flyers ranking second in the NHL right now using a 55 percent Corsi For% as a team, albeit theyve played in just 3 games so far. I taking a look at the Flames wild inconsistency on defense and in goal. They have let 3.33 goals per match up to now, again not a dreadful number considering all of the crime we are seeing so far. However, the Flames have received only an .896 Svpercent from their goaltending for this stage, although we will almost surely see No.1 David Rittich in target tonight. Still, Rittich is coming off a six-goal thumping at the hands of their Vegas Golden Knights after allowing four goals from his most recent start at home — a 4-3 overtime loss to the L.A. Kings. Enter Lindblom who is off to a nice start this season with 2 goals, an assist and 10 shots on target through three matches. Even with James van Riemsdyk across the left side also, Lindblom has maintained his spot as the teams next line winger and is skating together with Sean Couturier. The end result is 17:34 of ice time through two matches, a large growth from his 13:45 mark from last season. He is also on the second power play unit where he is notched his goals this season, so let us search for Lindblom to remain hot in this one tonight.
D — Quinn Hughes (VAN) — $4,300 vs. DET
If you are going with a money lineup youre likely better off with Alexander Edler to complete this pile, but from an offensive standpoint Hughes is your superior defenseman and contrary to this particular Red Wings group thats becoming dominated in the ownership game, I want the defenseman with the nose for the net rather than one in Edler who creates a big chunk of his own DFS living from blocking shots. The very first full period of Hughes NHL career is off to a nice start as he has notched a goal and two assists to go along with seven shots and a block across a healthful 20:08 of ice time daily. Hughes wont see much time together with Pettersson and Boeser on the Canucks top power play unit, but his sole aim this year came on the second power play unit, so I am fine with having exposure to both teams for this one tonight. Its not only this year that is off to a great beginning, however Hughes also had three things in his five-game cameo in the conclusion of the year with Vancouver this past year, meaning he has just one goal and six points in the first nine games of his NHL career — an exceptional total to this point. I am loving the price about the recently-turned 20-year-old, therefore let us see if he could really deliver the value advertised in this one tonight.
D — Ivan Provorov (PHI) — $4,700 vs. CGY
Completing our Flyers mini-stack is Provorov who seems set to bounce back out of what can be regarded as a down year at 2018-19. At only 22 years old, this can be already Provorovs fourth full season in the NHL and he has not missed a single game during the first three. As a newcomer, he notched 30 points. As a sophomore, he scored a whopping 17 goals and notched 41 points. But last year, he fell to only seven goals and 26 points while his shots on goal dropped from 203 from 2017-18 to just 145 last season. Well, if the early return here in 2019-20 are any indication, we can likely expect a huge season from Provorov once more this time around. During three games hes notched a goal and two assists to go along with nine shots on goal and also a pair of blocks also, re-claiming the exceptional cross-category upside he put on screen prior to last year. Shayne Gostisbehere continues to get top-unit power play minutes, but Provorov creates a second-unit electricity play mini-stack with Lindblom where hes got two of his three points on the season. Hes also skating 23:38 on this season — over five extra moments over Gostisbeheres 18:18 markers. Provorov is the much superior player from all standpoints this year and I believe he and Lindblom will team of to create some value tonight.
G — Connor Hellebuyck (WPG) — $7,900 vs. ARI
The Jets and Coyotes get together from Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg tonight, and also this one has a Jets win written all over it. The Coyotes have been great defensively with only 1.75 goals against per game so far, but the Jets offense has been great and are completely dynamite in the home, so Hellebuyck ought to get some aim encourage in this one. Niklas Hjalmarsson — among the greatest defensive defensemen in the NHL — is around for three months after hammering his fibula, bettering the Jets opportunity to offer goal support for Hellebuyck. Also helping is the fact that the Coyotes have averaged just 1.75 goals per game themselves and are once again among the worst crimes in the NHL in the early going. Enter Hellebuyck who has bounced back in a significant way from becoming touched up on opening night against the Rangers. Since that time, Hellebuyck has rattled off three consecutive wins and possesses a .953 sv. Following Hellebuyck conquer the Blackhawks on 22, the had been with copy Laurent Brossoit in target. Hes on a function, he is confronting a weak crime and he is playing at home where his odds for target service are high with the Jets listed to win this one on the moneyline. I will take this value daily.
