FanDuel NHL: Thursday Value Plays
FanDuel NHL: Thursday Value Plays

This article is part of our FanDuel NHL series.

Goalie

Connor Hellebuyck, WPG vs CGY ($8,400): Hellebuyck is one of the bright young goaltenders in the league and sets up in a great spot at home against the Flames. He's won each of his last eight starts and is second in the league with 42 victories on the season. The Jets are heavy favorites in this spot, and you can expect a solid floor with some upside from Hellebuyck.

Center

Mathew Barzal, NYI vs NYR ($6,200): The Rangers have allowed 14 goals and 24 assists to centers over their last 13 games. The rookie has six points in his last four games and has made handy work of the Rangers with three goals and six assists in three games.

Dylan Larkin, DET vs MTL ($6,500): Larkin is hot right now with two goals and four assists over his current four-game point streak. The Canadiens have allowed the most fantasy points to centers over the last four weeks, giving Larkin a great chance of continuing his productive play.

Wing

Cam Atkinson, CBJ vs PIT ($6,700): The right winger is on fire with 10 goals and five assists over his last 10 games. Atkinson has four points in his last five outings against the Penguins and shapes up as a nice wing option under $7,000.

Alex Tuch, VGK at EDM ($3,800): Tuch skates on the first line and top power-play unit for one of the highest-scoring teams in the league. He has two goals and three assists over his last five games and can build off that recent production against the Oilers, who have allowed 20 points to right wingers over their last 12 games.

Kyle Connor, WPG vs CGY ($5,200): I'll keep riding this train until it derails. The Jets are full-speed-ahead looking at the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Connor has a point in eight of his last 11 outings, and the Flames have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to left wingers over the last four weeks.

Defense

Neal Pionk, NYR at NYI ($4,500): After a hot start, Pionk has not recorded a point in his last five games. Lucky for him, he draws a soft matchup against the Islanders, who have been decimated by defensemen, allowing the most fantasy points to the position over the last month.

Jeff Petry, MTL at DET ($4,600): Petry has been producing well of late with a goal and five assists in his last five contests. The Red Wings aren't exactly stingy against blue liners, having allowed 32 points to the position over their last 14 games. Petry logs plenty of minutes and gets shots on net, offering a solid floor at his bargain price tag.
