Recommended Pickup

Devan Dubnyk (G) Edmonton - Dubnyk is not going to make all the difference in ensuring that your fantasy team is a contender, but he is worth a look at this point if you need goalie help. There is no real word on when Nikolai Khabibulin will be back in the lineup, and Dubnyk is unbeaten in his last four starts overall. Maybe his youth will blend in with the makeup of the rest of the team, and he will pick up a few spot wins for you this week and next.
