Update (6:43 PM) - Although I do like Toews tonight, as I'm going with Hellebuyck, I'm going to switch him out. I'm going with Mikhail Sergachev of Tampa Bay instead! Image is updated. Good Luck!

Hi Everyone!

We got a solid NHL 9-game slate tonight and let’s take a look at our NHL DraftKings “Main Slate” lineup that starts at 7:00pm tonight!


We’re going to focus heavily on the NYR/NJ game tonight and it starts with stacking the Rangers top-line in Mika Zlbanejad, Pavel Buchnevich, & Artemi Panarin. This line has been outstanding to start the season, averaging 51.2 DraftKings points per game and you couldn’t ask for a better matchup agianst the Devils who rank 30th in GA/G (4.50) and are dead last PK% (57.1%).

For the Devils, we’re going to roster the talented young rookie in Jack Hughes and pay up for Taylor Hall.

Hughes has yet to register a point over his first 6 games, but now that he has been moved to the first line and will be playing with Taylor Hall, I think that is going to change tonight.

Hall is averaging about 4 shots per game on goal and as the Rangers defense that doesn’t have the talent level to slow down a top-tier player like Hall.

For our defensemen, we’re going with the Islanders Devon Toews and Blues Vince Dunn.

In the net, we’re going to go with Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck.

I’m excited to watch the TB/BOS game tonight and I think Jake DeBrusk has some decent value with a price tag below $5,000.  DeBrusk has only registered one assist on the season, however, he has been very active in front of the net in the early going and I think he has solid value to put in our Utility spot tonight.  

Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter (@BrettCU05) as this is the best play for me to post any last minute adjustments!

Good Luck!
