12/15 NHL DFS – The Daily Hot Shot



This article focuses on NHL DFS Picks for 12/15 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 and power play lines at both morning skate and before lock as they can drastically change from the time of publication.

Cash Line

Las Vegas Two – Chandler Stephenson, Mark Stone, Max Pacioretty

The Las Vegas Golden Knights come in with the highest projected goal total of the night, a modest 3.41. For cash games, most people will be deciding between the two top lines. Max Pacioretty is my priority among individual skaters with his current form. Therefore, the second line intrigues me a little more as it offers a solid combination of upside and savings. Chandler Stephenson has replaced the slumping Paul Stastny on the second line and comes in at a punt price. You can also try to stack one Las Vegas One and add Max Pacioretty as a one-off, so there are a few ways to attack this situation for cash purposes.

GPP Line

Minnesota Two – Eric Staal, Jason Zucker, Mats Zuccarello

The Minnesota Wild travel to Chicago as the underdog. Meanwhile, this line is quietly the seventh most productive in the NHL this season by the numbers, with 16 full line goals. One metric in particular that stands out is their .883 save % against which is better than lines such as the McDavid/Draisaitl line “.917” and Boston One “by one percentage point”. On DraftKings they are underpriced for their production.
