Hot Shot 1/31- NHL DFS Picks for DraftKings and FanDuel



Wow, it’s the end of January already?! Where has this month gone? The NHL is about to enter its All Star Break, so we end up getting a couple of small slates this week, until all teams are off starting on Thursday. Tonight, we get a three game slate, and of course we will attack it like we usually do! Let’s find the best NHL DFS plays for DraftKings and FanDuel. Good luck!


Frederik Andersen – Carolina Hurricanes: The Canes host the Kings tonight, and the Kings have been struggling over their last five road games, putting up just 1.8 goals per game. Andersen’s numbers aren’t amazing, but they are about the best of the bunch on a small slate.

High Risk Goalie Pick – Joonas Korpisalo – Columbus Blue Jackets: This is a very high risk play against Washington tonight, but it’s a really good way to get different. The Caps should fire away on Korpi tonight, and he has a little bit of home ice advantage. He should be a solid upside play tonight, and could be in line for a save bonus on DraftKings.

Others to Consider: Anton Forsberg (OTT)

Lines to Build Around

These NHL DFS lines are considered top plays for the night and can be considered the focal point of your builds. They will be listed by position in the following order: Center/Winger/Winger/Correlating Defenseman (if applicable).

Ottawa Senators 1 – Tim Stutzle/Mathieu Joseph/Brady Tkachuk/Thomas Chabot: This top line has a fantastic matchup against the top line for the Canadiens tonight. They should see plenty of chances and should be able to light the lamp multiple times. You can also drop Joseph here and replace him with either Batherson or Debrincat for a power play look. Montreal is 4th in the league in times shorthanded per game, and 29th on the penalty kill.

Carolina Hurricanes 2 – Jesper Kotkaniemi/Martin Necas/Andrei Svechnikov/Brent Burns: The second line for the Canes tonight should see a very nice matchup against the third line for the Kings. The even strength matchup and the goalie matchup make this a fantastic play tonight, and could be a little different from the field. Consider rolling a power play look here as well.

High Risk Lines

These are NHL DFS plays that carry significantly more risk, but could pay off at low ownership. They will be listed by position in the following order: Center/Winger/Winger/Correlating Defenseman (if applicable).

Washington Capitals 1 – Dylan Strome/T.J. Oshie/Alexander Ovechkin/Erik Gustafsson: The Caps head to Columbus to take on the Blue Jackets, so it may be surprising that they are in the high risk section. It turns out that CBJ is not giving up a ton defensively over their last five, and Korpisalo has been decent of late. Washington SHOULD be a good play tonight, but there is cause for concern in this one that they could underperform.

Columbus Blue Jackets 1 – Boone Jenner/Kirill Marchenko/Johnny Gaudreau: Based on everything above, the Blue Jackets are an interesting play tonight. This top line will see a top six matching scheme against the top two Washington lines, and should be up against Kuemper, who has been inconsistent. While the numbers aren’t stellar for this line, they should see some chances and could be an under-owned surprise tonight. It makes sense to get some CBJ if you are playing multiple lineups.

Ottawa Senators 3 – Shane Pinto/Derick Brassard/Drake Batherson: Another way to roll Ottawa tonight is this third line. They should have a very nice matchup and will likely be very low owned. They are reserved for deep GPPs only.
