NHL DFS Picks For December 16, 2021

Carter Hart DFS

The Covid situation continues to worsen but the last step the league is willing to take is to pause the season. We are attempting to stay on top of all the roster moves but it is a little crazy. We do know that the Florida Panthers are getting hit particularly bad right now so one of our sneak picks for the day is the Los Angeles Kings. 

Here’s a spread lineup For DFS Hockey 12/16/21 (using DraftKings Values)

CenterL. Draisaitl$8,900
DefenseQ. Hughes$5,300
GoalieC. Hart$7,800

Leon Draisaitl is still pushing almost two points per game right now which is nearly unheard of outside of Hall of Fame members. That is even with only getting a point in one of his last five games. Both he and Connor McDavid are needing a big game to get some mojo back. Take your favorite, we are just leaning towards Drai for his price and goal totals.

There are few times you will see us going after Carter Hart and the Flyers but they have a juicy matchup we cannot ignore. The Canadiens will be icing Cayden Primeau who does not sport very nice numbers on the season. With Kevin Hayes back they will be taking as many shots as possible. If you have a favorite Flyer, today is the day to take them.

Quinn Hughes and the Vancouver Canucks have been riding the high of their new coach and have been thoroughly rejuvenated. Quinn is still having trouble finding the back of the net but it is only a matter of time. Until then he is still racking up assists and taking shots.

Value alert! Vincent Trochek will be assuming top line center duties with Sebastian Aho out with Covid. A stack with either Nino Niederreiter or Martin Necas would be a wise move.

 Continuing on with some great picks for winger we have Drake Batherson and Lucas Raymond. Both are having breakout seasons for their respective clubs and have been great owns. Drake in particular has been on a tear. Can the Senators beat the Lightning twice in a week?

Alex Pietrangelo is always a beast of a player and he helped out in a big way in Vegas’ win over the Bruins. Word on the street is that Jack Eichel is starting to skate and we may only be a couple weeks away from his return.

That ended up being a very balanced lineup without even needing to go super cheap. Stay well rounded yourself by following us on Twitter (@FantasyDFSX). Have yourselves a wonderful Thursday. Stay thirsty, my friends!
