This article is part of our FantasyDraft NHL series.
The NHL is super busy Wednesday and Friday, but Tuesday is a little lighter on the schedule front. There are only three games on the docket, but you can still play daily fantasy hockey if you desire. Perhaps these players can lead you to glory…
Dallas Stars, DAL vs. MON ($15,700): The Canadiens have only scored 2.38 goals per game, and they also have a team GAA of 3.52. That latter stat is worth noting, because it increases the Stars' chances of picking up a win. Dallas, meanwhile, has only allowed 28.8 shots on net per contest, one of the lowest averages in the league. The Stars are also 7-2-0 at home, another point in their favor.
Sean Couturier, PHI vs. VAN ($13,700): You may have heard that Couturier is having a breakout season. He's notched 22 points in 20 games, and he's put 67 shots on net. Sure, these numbers are a major change for Couturier, but he's averaged 20:42 per game, and 2:43 on the power play with Brayden Schenn out of the picture. Both are career highs. The Canucks got off to an unexpectedly good start, but they've come back down to Earth with a 3.33 team GAA in November.
Paul Stastny, STL vs. EDM ($11,000): Stastny has been dishing out the assists this season. He has 14 helpers, including six in his last three outings. Stastny has also put 48 shots on goal, so he's been more than just a playmaker. The Oilers have a team GAA of 3.15, and also a team save percentage of .898.
Jakub Voracek, PHI vs. VAN ($13,400): At this point, it seems like Voracek may just be a guy who has a low shooting percentage, but he doesn't let it keep him down. He's notched 25 points through 20 games, 20 of those being assists. Furthermore, eight of those helpers have come on the power play, and he's had at least 23 points with the extra man in his last four seasons. Vancouver has a 2.80 team GAA, and its penalty kill ranks 20th.
Alexander Radulov, DAL vs. MON ($12,200): As mentioned earlier, the Canadiens have a team GAA of 3.52. Right now, both Carey Price and Al Montoya are on injured reserve, which leaves Charlie Lindgren minding the net. He started hot, but he has a 5.59 GAA and a .831 save percentage in his last two starts. Radulov, meanwhile, has 15 points in his last 11 games, and he's only been held without a point in one of those contests.
Jaden Schwartz, STL vs. EDM ($11,000): Schwartz has 10 goals and 16 assists already, and even though his shooting percentage will definitely regress, there's a lot to like. Take, for example, the fact he has four power-play points and has averaged 3:34 per game with the extra man. The Oilers have the 29th-ranked penalty kill, which bodes well for Schwartz.
John Klingberg, DAL vs. MON ($10,500): Klingberg has put 48 shots on net through 20 games, and he's tallied eight points on the power play. Klingberg has had at least 17 power-play points in his last two seasons, and the Swede is a clear offensive weapon with a favorable matchup against the 28th-ranked penalty kill.
Ivan Provorov, PHI vs. VAN ($9,400): Provorov's numbers may not be as gaudy as Shayne Gostisbehere's, but he has offensive skills of his own. The Russian has nine points, and he's put 52 shots on goal. He's also averaged 24:53 per game in ice time, a big leap from his rookie season. The Canucks have a 2.80 team GAA, and a .907 team save percentage. Provorov also has 55 blocked shots, so he could add a little fantasy value on that front to boot.
