Yahoo DFS Hockey: Saturday Elections


This article is part of our Yahoo DFS Hockey Series.

Saturday is the men’s college hockey title game between Denver and Minnesota State, but there is also plenty of hockey at the professional level. I was tempted to make an entire game as the first game starts at. 14.00 EDT, but instead I will only focus on the nine games that start at. 19.00 or later. There are plenty of options! Here are the ones I recommend and the ones I would avoid.

MEASUREMENT GOALS

Robin LehnerVGK vs. ARI ($ 31): Since returning, Lehner has had a good start and a bad start. However, I expect a good outcome for him in this one. As the Canadiens play better offensively, the Coyotes are now last in goal (2.49) and shots on the net (25.8) per. match. There is no easier matchup.

GOALS TO AVOID

James ReimerSAN at VAN ($ 28): Reimer has played well, but he got knocked up against the Flames in his last start and may not be at full strength in this match. The Canucks may only be number 20 in goals per game. match, but they have also put 32.1 shots on the net per. match. Since Reimer is on the move, I’m a little skeptical of him here.

CENTER

Dylan LarkinIT vs. CLM ($ 24): Larkin has a point in five of his last six games, giving him 67 points in 66 competitions. He seems to put career height in goals and points. The Blue Jackets have a 3.71 GAA and they have also allowed 35.6 shots online per game. competition, the latter of which is highest in the NHL.

CENTER TO AVOID

Jared McCannSEA vs. CGY ($ 13): McCann has his first season with 40 points and he will be the first Kraken to lead the team in goals, but this is not a team with a wealth of offensive talent. The flames, on the other hand, have quite a talent in the net. Jacob Markstrom has a 2.18 GAA and 0.924 save percentage.

WING

Michael BuntingTOR vs. MON ($ 20): Auston Matthews has set a new franchise record for goals in one season. Perhaps not surprisingly, his linebacker Bunting has nine assists in his last 10 games. Montreal has a 3.80 GAA, which is tied with Detroit for the highest in the NHL.

Jakub VoracekCLM on IT ($ 15): Voracek’s lousy 4.0 percent shot may have limited him to five goals, but he has 46 assists this season and he also has 21 power-play points a year. This power-play success bodes well here as the Red Wings have the 31st ranked penalty kill.

WINGS TO AVOID

David PerronSTL vs. NYI ($ 21): Both the Blues and Islanders are on the second stage of a back-to-back. The difference between these teams? The Islanders are in the top five in the GAA and penalty-kill percentage. They have the duo Semyon Varlamov and Ilya Sorokin, which gives them a little drop off between the goalkeepers. That’s not good for Perron, especially since 21 of his 49 points have come with the extra man.

Brady TkachukOTT at NYR ($ 20): If Igor Shesterkin seeks to bolster his Vezina and Hart campaigns, he will want to get big on this one. Either way, looking at Shesterkins 2.10 GAA and .935 savings percentage makes me worried about any senator facing him in New York. That includes Tkachuk, who also comes with an increased salary.

DEFENSE

Shea TheodorVGK vs. ARI ($ 19): Theodore has four points in his last five games, giving him 41 points this season. He has also put 166 shots online in 68 games. Coyotes are in the bottom five in GAA and shots online allowed per. competition, and also has the league’s worst penalty kick. Theodore has played an average of 2:34 per. fight with the extra man.

Jamie DrysdaleANA at PHI ($ 10): Drysdale has been given an elevated role since the trade deadline. During his last eight games, he has averaged 20:26 in ice time and 2:16 with the extra man. He also has three points and 19 shots on the net in that time. The Flyers meanwhile have a 3.48 GAA and have allowed 34.0 shots online per game. competition.

DEFENSE PEOPLE MUST AVOID

Darnell nurseEDM vs. COL ($ 18): Avalanche are on the second stage of a back-to-back, but they have a formidable goalkeeper duo. Plus, Pavel Francouz started Friday and saved Darcy Kuemper (2.40 GAA, 0.925 save percentage) for this matchup. Nurse has also only had an average of 1:16 per. fight with the extra man so he will not be able to take advantage of a tired penalty kick.

Vince DunnSEA vs. CGY ($ 13): Dunn plays top-pair minutes with Mark Giordano now in Toronto and he has eight points in his last 12 games. However, he has zero points in his last five games and now he has to face Markstrom.
