12/21 NHL DFS Picks for FanDuel and DraftKings

This article focuses on NHL DFS Picks for 12/21 NHL DFS slate on DraftKings and FanDuel. Both sites have fairly different scoring formats, particularly with the recent changes on DraftKings. We consider tournament tactics, statistics, pricing, and attempt to tackle this highly variable Daily Fantasy format so we can gain an edge on the field at large. BE SURE to double-check both regular, power-play lines and starting goalies at both morning skate and before lock as they can drastically change from the time of publication.

Top Two Lines

Montreal Canadiens One – Tomas Tatar, Philip Danault, Brendan Gallagher

This line has been on a roll especially Winger Brendan Gallagher who alone has five goals and four assists this month. All three players play on Montreal’s second power-play unit. The Montreal Canadiens will be entering Rogers Place to face off against the slumping Oilers who will be on the second half of a back-to-back.

Carolina Hurricanes One – Andrei Svenchnikov, Jordan Staal, Warren Foegele

Svech scored his second goal in as many games in style, pulling off yet another lacrosse-style goal! Both Foegele and Staal provide viable salary relief and Jordan plays alongside Andrei on Carolina’s top power-play unit. They will be at home against a Panthers team who played in a 7-4 barn burner against the Stars less than 24 hours prior. Carolina, in general, is heating up and this line is flying under the radar and each player is bringing value to the line. Foegele is also on a mini tear himself scoring four points in his last three games and Staal has twelve shots and three points in his past TWO GAMES!

Honorable Mention(s): Nashville Predators Two – Filip Forsberg, Matt Duchene, Rocco Grimaldi
