Center

Pierre-Luc Dubois (CLS): $3,900 vs. NJ
John Tortorella is notorious for shaking line combinations up. Since being moved up to the top line centering Artemi Panarin and Josh Anderson, Pierre-Luc Dubois has scored six points in his last four games. Forgotten as an extremely talented player, the former third-overall 2016 draft pick could be breaking out in a big way. With time on the first unit power play, the youngster is in a great spot against a soft defensive team.

Winger

Mathieu Perreault (WPG): $4,200 @ DET
The Winnipeg Jets are arguably the hottest team in the NHL at the moment. Coming off of a 5-0 win over the Ottawa Senators, the Jets find themselves with the second-best overall record while leading the Western Conference. Consistently producing all season, Mathieu Perreault is a great fantasy play. With 14 points in 15 games, Perreault is a threat to score as long as he stays as a top-six forward. Currently slotted in the top line with Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele, Perreault will also see top power play time. As an important part of this Jets stack, Mathieu Perreault is a great salary saving option.

Devin Shore (DAL): $3,700 vs. NSH
At just $3,700, Devin Shore is a great value play who logs top power play time with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. Although he doesn’t play with the superstars during even strength, Shore can be looked to as a great one-off play. Nashville will be playing on the back end of a back-to-back tonight in Dallas. Coming off of a two-point performance, Devin Shore is on pace to have his best career point total year.

Defense

Justin Schultz (PIT): $4,500 vs. NYR
Playing on the second power-play unit, Justin Schultz has taken advantage of his extra time-on-ice offensively. Although a complete liability defensively, Schultz has recorded five assists in his last five games. The Penguins are a top five power play team and are a threat to score each time on the man advantage. With most leaning toward playing Kris Letang, Justin Schultz is a $2,000 discount with similar upside.

Goalie

Jacob Markstrom (VAN): $7,500 vs. CAR
Coming off a huge home win against the offensive Toronto Maple Leafs, Jacob Markstrom will look to shut the door again tonight. The Carolina Hurricanes will be a great fantasy matchup for Markstrom. Carolina is ranked first in the NHL in Shots For (SF) while ranking just 22nd in Goals For (GF). These rankings correlate to a 30th overall shooting percentage. Facing a lot of low-quality shots and a great chance for a win, Jacob Markstrom is a great play regardless of price.
