NHL DFS Picks For April 2, 2022

Auston Matthews
TAMPA, FL - DECEMBER 13: Toronto Maple Leafs center Austin Matthews (34) shoots wide as Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevsky (88) scrambles across the goal in attempt to make a save during the first period of an NHL game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Tampa Bay Lightning on December 13, 2018, at Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL.

If calling Trevor Zegras to score a Michigan style lacrosse goal does not get you to subscribe, we do not know what will. Anaheim wiped the floor with Arizona and finally stemmed the bleeding. It may not be enough to make the playoffs, but at least they now have all their ducks in a row. Shoutout to Keith Yandle whose incredibly impressive NHL record 989 ironman streak is set to end tonight. 

Here’s a shocking lineup For DFS Hockey 4/2/22 (using DraftKings Values)

CenterB. Point$6,200
WingN. Kucherov$7,500
GoalieB. Elliott$8,400

We will not be attempting to call any special plays or numbers for Nikita Kucherov as that super power must be reserved for rare occasions. That said, he has not scored a goal in a very long time and we humbly suggest he fix that sooner rather than later. 

Brayden Point is chugging along at exactly a point per game which is surprising if you look at his last ten games. You would think it would be higher given his recent production. He is shifting into his playoff gear and that should scare every other team in the league. These two stacked together are hard to stop and Montreal will have their hands full.

Brian Elliott was not the choice we would have made to be the backup to Andre Vasilevskiy, but we have to admit he has done very well in this role. He is about to turn 37 and has a modest .916 save percentage and a cool 2.38 goals against. The team in front of him helps a lot but he is holding his own. Props.

• Elliott is still expensive so save some cash and get a top goalie returning from injury
• A third line phenom on a top team has just been upgraded to second line. Super duper value
• A team that is falling apart is playing a contender who needs points and is hungry. We have the guys who will feast

Jack Campbell has been out a few weeks with a rib injury and is finally back in the mix. He gets to dip his toes in the water against the Flyers who are…not good. We applaud their decision to bench Yandle in favor of giving other guys opportunities. Campbell started off the year as one of the best in the league and Toronto needs him to be in tip top shape if they hope to survive the meatgrinder of an Atlantic Division.

The Winnipeg Jets are in a tough position with Kyle Connor still in Covid protocols. He has scored an unreal 20% of their goals this year. We are shifting the chips to LA and are still undecided between Anze Kopitar and Philip Danault for our second center. Kopitar has been quiet the past few games while Danault has been more consistent. It may seem like Danault is the easy decision, but when Kopitar goes off, he goes OFF. Cal Peterson is another solid option in net for these reasons.

The Blue Jackets are in a tough way these days and losing their best defenseman Zach Werenski to injury is a huge blow to an already reeling team. Charlie McAvoy and the Bruins are licking their chops at this matchup. They put up 8 goals on the Devils and are trying to claw their way over Toronto and Tampa. This one could get ugly.

It would make sense to stack Hampus Lindholm with McAvoy as he has settled in nicely with his new team. The Bruins are deploying two defensemen on their second power play and Lindholm should reap the rewards. We are also looking at Noah Hanifin here. He does not get any of the love because of Rasmus Andersson, but he is averaging almost three shots a game, gets you blocks and has a few points in his last few games. He is very viable for very cheap and can be a great utility option.

Michael BuntingIlya Mikheyev and Trevor Moore all offer a ton of upside and can flex into whatever spots you may have left on your roster. Mikheyev may be the best deal here because he took over William Nylander’s spot on the second line and he is one of the best opportunists in the league. He can fill the void left in the wake of Zach Hyman being signed to Edmonton.

The weekend is finally here and we are ready to rest. It was a busy week here as it tends to be and we will be enjoying all of the finer aspects of life. Responsibly…maybe.
