Happy NHL Sunday. Jeff Lewis is taking a well-deserved break so you get the Publisher to do you NHL DFS picks for today, February 27, 2022 and I’ve got you some really solid plays for tonight’s three late games.
We’ve got a nighttime slate of three games as the early games were segmented on DraftKings.com into a VERY early two-game slate and most of us weren’t up for those games on a Sunday in California.
Here’s a core lineup For DFS Hockey 2/27/22 (using DraftKings Values)
Ilya Sorokin ($7,700) just lost a hard one on the road but that doesn’t scare me for tonight. The Islanders are a very good squad for team defense and that makes a matchup with an “up-and-coming” Anaheim team seemingly favorable tonight. They are on the road and perhaps they are a little pooped from too much partying Saturday night in Los Angeles but I am still going with Sorokin here tonight as my featured goalie.
Elias Pettersson ($4,000) scored two goals on Thursday and seems to be a very solid value for tonight especially at this low price. He’s not playing on the world’s best team but he’s a high end, offensive talent that could put some solid numbers up for us even facing a strong goaltender from The Rangers.
Brent Burns ($6,000) is expensive today but he’s facing a lame-ass Seattle team and he’s historically a very high end defensive option. San Jose isn’t a likely playoff team but Burns is picking up all of the premium ice time with Karlsson out for the season. He’s a good play tonight with room for other, name-players in your budget.
Mark Giordano ($5,400) has all of the incentive in the world to score tonight as Seattle shops his fine-ass in the trade market. He’s fairly priced and can fit into your lineups even if you splurge elsewhere. If you are asking me where he ends up at the Trade Deadline – I think a return trip to Calgary seems very possible.
Fade Alert!!!! I am going to fade Timo Meier ($7,100) today and it isn’t that I don’t like the guy or his matchup but I don’t like his price compared to the other options out there. There are better players in terms of night-in night-out DFS points for less money. I’ve got some of those listed for subscribers below.

• An expensive goalie who’s numbers might just win him a Vesna this year.• A pairing of powerful forwards that I like together and I’ve got ways for you to fit them into your budget.
• A $3,600 and $3,800 play up front that could make for one interesting GPP-oriented lineup.
• A high end option at D that is pretty obvious along with one that’s nearly half his price that again going make for a tempting GPP-oriented lineup.

Igor Shesterkin ($8,000) is the most expensive goalie on the board today and for good reason. He’s got a sub 2.00 GAA and a SVPG of .941. He doesn’t get scored on very often and The Rangers (as much as it pains me to write this) are a team trending upwards. Imagine what they will be like is Alexi and Kappo start living up to their potential? That is a scary thought for this Flyers fan.
Another guy who’s name has been all over the trade rumors is JT Miller ($5,400) who is coming off a gaudy performance in his last game. Vancouver has a cap problem for next season and they might be forced to move him. It seems like he wouldn’t mind being traded to a contender (perhaps back to The Rangers?) and likely will play for it. His average FPTS are good enough to justify his cost and he likely fits into your budget today.
I like the pairing of Chris Kreider ($6,200) and A. Panerin ($6,100) if you are feeling The Rangers tonight. That’s some pretty elite level scoring plus good Power Play time. These guys can flat-out score and I think you might find a way to get them BOTH into your lineup tonight. I did.
What’s not to like about Norris Trophy winner Adam Fox ($6,700) other than his price. We’ve got pretty strong performers listed above but you might find some budget relief with a Quinn Hughes ($5,000). If I needed to go deep on D today, I might take a long-shot call on Jamie Drysdale ($3,600). I haven’t hit on this youngster yet as I have recently with the likes of Cam York (from Anaheim but plays for my hapless Flyers mostly in the AHL but does get his call ups). He could be a GPP winner type of play but he also could leave you high and dry.
Every DFS player can use a high-upside value pick and I see a few that are by no-means guarantees (who ever is?) but Yanni Gourde ($2,900) is very budget friendly. He’s on a terrible team but he still cranks out points and he allows for indulgences elsewhere. 7.2 FTPS isn’t changing the world but $2,900 isn’t breaking any budgets either.
Need more value? Ryan Getzlaf ($3,800) is old but he was on a point-per-game pace for the first half of the year. I love his value (8.5 FPTS on average this year) but he’s going against Ilya Sorokintonight which is why he didn’t make my lineup today. I’ve got him in Legacy NHL fantasy and because age discrimination is as real as a heart attack in fantasy hockey – he remains a sleeper DFS value tonight.
Pop-us a DM on Twitter (@FantasyDFSX) with some of your thoughts and-or to share a screenshot on how your lineup did. Always remember to keep an eye out for last minute changes/injuries/COVID and whatnot as there are a good five hours to go before these games start. A lot can change there but you, our loyal subscribers, have many options tonight. Let’s do some winning!
