This article is part of our DFS NHL Breakdown series.
The following files are loaded with information to assist you in creating your daily fantasy hockey rosters on FanDuel and DraftKings. There is a lot to take in here, and it will likely take you a few days of playing before you can confidently use all the information provided, so I would suggest starting slow: use the Line Stack sections and individual player rankings, then start to branch out into the power play values, hot/cold sections and beyond. Please send any questions and please be aware there's going to be a player here and there with a low number of games who "breaks the spreadsheet" and is off the charts in terms of projections & value, just keep in mind those are aberrations, this is not likely the next Wayne Gretzky that my spreadsheet has discovered.

At the left, it starts with the daily schedule but only games on the main slate will be included in the analysis. From the left are the teams with a color/number that designates how updated the rosters are (Green/0 means they have been updated today, Yellow/1 is one-day old rosters, Orange/2 is two-days old, Red/3 is older than two days). The scheduled time of the game is next.
The Starting Goalie is next with a C (Confirmed), L (Likely) or Blank (Projected).
