FanDuel NHL: Friday Value Plays
FanDuel NHL: Friday Value Plays

This article is part of our FanDuel NHL series.

Goalie

Matt Murray, PIT vs. OTT ($8,300): Murray should be in line for a win in tonight's matchup at home against the lowly Senators. The netminder has won five of his last six against Ottawa, allowing two or fewer goals in all but one of those games. Murray is a safe option with some upside in this spot, and his salary is incredibly friendly.

Center

Brayden Point, TB vs. BUF ($6,300): The Lightning should have plenty of scoring chances against the Sabres and Point should be a focal piece of their attack. The Sabres have allowed the most fantasy points to centers over the last four weeks, including 18 goals and 27 assists. He has three goals in his last three games while logging six points in his last six games against Buffalo.

Brayden Schenn, STL at CHI ($6,600): Schenn has two goals and three assists in his last six games. He's facing the Blackhawks who have shown lapses defensively throughout the season, especially to the center position. Schenn is a force on the power play, kills penalties and logs big minutes for the Blues. He has six points in his last seven games against the Blackhawks and should find his way onto the scoresheet on Friday one way or another.

Wing

Sam Reinhart, BUF at TB ($5,600): Reinhart's production on a bad Sabres team is in a way astonishing. He's compiled 24 goals and 25 assists for one of the lowest scoring teams in the league and has five goals and an assists during his current four game point scoring streak. Against the Lightning, Reinhart has two goals and 13 SOG in his last three games against Tampa Bay.

Patric Hornqvist, PIT vs. OTT ($6,400): Hornqvist is on fire for the Penguins who are taking on Ottawa, one of the worst defensive teams in the NHL all season long. The Swede has a goal in four straight games and five in his last six contests with three assists over that span. Ottawa has allowed 25 points to right wingers in their last 14 games.

Alex DeBrincat, CHI vs. STL ($5,700): DeBrincat, the promising rookie for the Blackhawks has 28 goals and 24 assists in 80 games, with six of his tallies coming on the power play. The 20-year-old has three goals in his last four games to go with three assists and has four goals in his last two games against the Blues.

Defense

Alex Pietrangelo, STL at CHI ($5,700): Pietrangelo will look to add to his 15 goals and 38 assists in a soft matchup against the Blackhawks who have allowed the second-most fantasy points to defensemen over the last four weeks. The Blues' captain has four goals and four assists in his last eight games against Chicago.

Duncan Keith, CHI vs. STL ($5,300): Keith has had a disappointing season overall, but his production against the Blues can't be overlooked here. The future Hall of Famer has a point in each of his last six games against the Blues with at least two SOG in each of those games.
