Daily Fantasy Hockey Picks
As the NHL regular season comes to an end, we bring to you one of the last editions of our Daily Fantasy Hockey Picks.
There’s only three games on the NHL schedule tonight, so pickins are slim. Mighty slim when considering the teams that are in action.
Only the Philadelphia Flyers and Detroit Red Wings have something to play for (and that’s a lot), and they both happen to be playing against each other.
The quality of defenseman available in the Canucks vs Oilers game is putrid. Andrej Sekera is virtually the only NHL caliber defenseman and he though he does have 5 points, he is a steep minus-8 in his last 10 games.
Niklas Kronwall DET – Similar to Sekera, the Red Wings veteran D-man has 7 points in his last 10 contests, but holds a minus-6 rating over that span as well.
Riley Sheahan DET – The hard-working centerman exploded over the last month of the season, scoring more goals than he did in the previous 70 games. He has 8 points in last 10 games.
William Nylander TO – The uber talented rookie has 3 points in his last 2 games, and 8 in his last 10. Even more impressive is that he didn’t mark the scoresheet for 5 straight over those games.
Wayne Simmonds PHI – With 4 goals in his last 4 games, Simmonds is turning it on when the Flyers need it most. He generally a solid fantasy pick as he plays a tough, all-around game. Throw in elite goal scoring and he’s a superstar in real life and fantasy. He’s the star of the picks but totally worth the investment, especially on a schedule like tonight.
