February is rapidly coming to a close and spring is on the horizon. It is a quiet day in the hockey world with only three games going on so we are going to spread the love to all the teams. We will start over in the Vancouver Canucks vs New Jersey Devils just because we want to shout out the Hughes family for all the entertainment they will be bringing us for the next decade. Luke Hughes is currently crushing it in college for the University of Michigan and will make it to the NHL sooner rather than later. His two older brothers and himself were all top 10 picks in their respective drafts which is quite the accomplishment.
Here’s a huge lineup For DFS Hockey 2/28/22 (using DraftKings Values)
The New Jersey Devils were proud to select Jack Hughes first overall in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. It took about two years but he has blossomed into a point per game player. He is lighting the lamp all the time and is on a big point streak. Can he extend that to eight games? Even if he does not, check out those shot totals. He is regularly getting to the 5+ mark which always pays big dividends.
Quinn Hughes was taken 7th overall the year before. He only has 30 games more played but has accrued 50 more points. We do wish more of them were goals but he is a remarkably consistent player and we cannot fault him too much for being a defenseman. We are excited to see some sibling rivalry in action.
There are no goalies in the family as far as we know so we will go ahead and take Jeremy Swayman from the Boston Bruins. There was an incredible save he made last game where he could not control the rebound, was sprawled out on the ice but kept his eyes on the puck as he shifted across the net and managed to get his glove just off the ice to rob a sure goal. He is very technically sound and keeps on impressing.

The Toronto Maple Leafs may have scored 10 goals in their last game but they almost let it go to the Detroit Red Wings, allowing 7 goals. They have the offensive power but there are some concerns that this is not sustainable top to bottom. Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals could use a big win and this is the sort of game they use to turn things around. The Maple Leafs are putting their backup goalie in. It is not out of line to suggest that Ovi may hit the 10+ shot mark tonight.
Guys, our hands are tied on this. Elias Pettersson is still stupid cheap. Those last five games put him in the top of the league in scoring. $4,400 are you kidding us!? Sure you could take Bo Horvat who has a higher average score, but what has he really done recently?
We should head over to the Kings to take a peek at what they have for us. Matt Roy is a pretty nice addition and has been tossing some bonus assists on the pile. He scored his first goal of the year in his last game as well. If you want pure peripherals then Ryan Graves will also raise the floor for you.
We are not sure what has been up with Tom Wilson who has been suspiciously quiet the last few weeks. Maybe it is part of whatever is ailing the team as a whole but he could use a big night and we are stapling him to Ovechkins hip. If you do not like him, and that is a fair take, Yegor Sharangovich popped a goal in the last time we took him and is on his own seven game point streak currently.
Ondrej Kase was elevated to the second line in Toronto and picked up a goal and an assist. He is super cheap with new found upside. There have always been flashes of brilliance and we really hope he can put it all together and get past all the injuries.
Happy Monday y’all. Is it Tuesday yet? We would love it you not only followed but retweeted Twitter (@FantasyDFSX) posts to let people know how awesome we are! See you tomorrow.
