Yahoo DFS Hockey: Sunday Elections

This article is part of our Yahoo DFS Hockey Series.

Sunday is often a day for afternoon hockey, but there is plenty of evening action tonight with six matches. Here are some players to target and avoid for your DFS lineups.


Igor ShesterkinNYR vs. PHI ($ 36): I could easily see Alexandar Georgiev get started as Shesterkin seems to slip after taking on the biggest workload of his career, or maybe Shesterkin will actually be online because that’s the kind of matchup that could get him right . Flyers ranks 30th in goals per. match and will also be away in the second round of a back-to-back.


Thatcher DemkoVAN vs. URC ($ 30): Demko comes in with a .916 save percentage, but this is a tougher matchup than you might think. The Golden Knights have averaged 3.14 goals, which is barely above average, but they have also aimed 34.0 shots on the net per game. match. They also did not have Jack Eichel for most of the season.


Nick SchmaltzARI at CHI ($ 20): I would note that Schmaltz has produced 10 points over his last 12 games because he counted 11 over two appearances immediately before and that would skew the perception. With Marc-Andre Fleury in Minnesota, Kevin Lankinen is now Chicago’s top goalkeeper, and he has struggled to achieve a 3.66 GAA and 0.887 save percentage.


Bo HorvatVAN vs. URC ($ 18): Horvat is likely to be back from the non-COVID illness that caused him to leave Vancouver’s last match on Wednesday. This is not a great matchup, even for a fully healthy player, as Logan Thompson has apparently found his foothold with a 2.13 GAA and 0.934 save percentage from his last eight games.


Dylan StromeCHI vs. ARI ($ 26): Strome is going to center a line (Yahoo has him listed as a winger for DFS purposes) with Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat, which is a great place to be. He has also been on fire with a point in 13 of his last 15 excursions. The Coyotes come in with a 3.57 GAA and have allowed 35.6 shots on the net, the latter the highest rating in the NHL.

Frank VatranoNYR vs. PHI ($ 17): Vatrano has been placed on New York’s first line, and so far has managed five goals and an assist through nine games. Flyers are on their way for the second of consecutive hardly. It is not ideal for a team with a 3.51 GAA that allows 34.0 shots online per game. match.


Mats ZuccarelloMIN at WAS ($ 22): Zuccarello enjoys a great season in Minnesota’s top unit, but he’s away from home in the second half of a back-to-back. Capitals has only allowed 29.3 shots on the net and I also assume that Vitek Vanecek with its 2.56 GAA and 0.914 save percentage will be in the net.

Cam AtkinsonPHI at NYR ($ 17): I recommended Atkinson as a start on Saturday when he was at home against Toronto. But on Sunday, he will be away and play his second game in as many nights. Slightly sloppy play recently aside, Shesterkin still posted a 2.13 GAA and 0.934 save percentage.


Seth JonesCHI vs. ARI ($ 20): Jones has been exactly what the Blackhawks wanted. He has averaged 26:05 in ice time and 3:24 with the extra man, both career highs. Jones has also scored 46 points and 161 shots on goal. Coyotes have allowed the most shots online per. match in the league, and Karel Vejmelka maintains a 3.44 GAA and 0.904 save percentage.

Jamie DrysdaleANA vs. EDM ($ 11): After some trades, the Ducks have basically given up a key role in their defense to Drysdale. He has shown his upside in his last appearance with 3:39 on the powerplay along with an assist, seven shots on goal and four blocked shots. Drysdale has scored 28 points a year, including 11 with the extra man. The Oilers have plenty of goals, but they also have a bottom-10 GAA of 3.25.


Jared SpurgeonMIN at WAS ($ 19): Spurgeon represents Minnesota’s best offensive blueline option, but he’s not a massive offensive force with only 89 shots on net. As I noted, the Capitals have only given 29.3 shots on goal per game. match. It is very possible that Spurgeon does not manage a single shot on goal, especially on the second day of a back-to-back.

Shea TheodorVGK at VAN ($ 17): The Canucks’ biggest problem is that they have struggled to get a penalty kick at the bottom of five. Theodore may not be ready to take advantage of that with just one PPP over his last 29 games. And even with the team’s struggles defending the power play, Demko still has a 2.68 GAA and 0.916 save percentage, so it’s clear he’s doing something right with steady strength.
