NHL DFS Lineup: Patrick Kane Detroit Debut!

While you anxiously wait for your weekly NFL Fantasy Football matchup to be determined, why miss out on the fun of doing it daily?

With hockey, skates are hitting the ice every night with constant matchups. Yup, you can practice being an NHL coach by mocking up your own ideal DFS lineup within the cap space. 

NHL DFS Lineup: december 7

Our Thursday night NHL DFS lineup is going to have the classic nine-player bench of 2 C, 3 W, 2 D, a goalie and a utility spot within a $50,000 budget.

NHL DFS Lineup: December 7

Here's our NHL DFS Lineup for this Thursday's slate:

  1. C: Leo Carlsson


  2. C: Phillip Danault


  3. W: Patrick Kane


  4. W: Clayton Keller


  5. W: Mitch Marner


  6. D: Moritz Seider


  7. D: Jake Walman


  8. G: Connor Ingram


  9. UTIL: Tony DeAngelo


c: Leo Carlsson vs chicago

With 13 points in 17 games, Carlsson is showing he is an everyday player in the NHL who can produce at will. The 2nd overall pick from last year has been in and out of the lineup, similar to how Tampa Bay handled Steven Stamkos in his rookie season. Already stealing a hat trick, Carlsson, averaging 10.3 fantasy points per game, is showing he is capable of having big nights despite being 18 years old. 

C: Phillip Danault vs montreal

We got to give some love to Phillip as he returns to his old stomping grounds at the Bell Centre. When he's on the ice, Danault is also facing top lines and getting big minutes, has won over 60% of his faceoffs in four of his last five and won't be afraid to make a hit or block a couple of shots. 

He's not just a forechecker though. With 15 points in 22 games, the 30-year-old is on pace for a career-high 56-point season. 

W: patrick kane vs san jose

The anticipated debut happens tonight as Kane hits the ice as a Red Wing against the lowly San Jose Sharks, swimming at the bottom of the league. We all know Kane loves the spotlight and would aim for his start with Detroit to come with success. Not to mention the Red Wings are on a high with six wins in their last seven. So, we'll take a chance on Kane being a massive headline tomorrow and only costing us $5,500. 

W: clayton keller

All aboard the Keller Express. Arizona is on a five-game streak, taking down previous Stanley Cup champions in four straight. Plus, Keller has silky smooth hands with an elite 24 points in 24 games. It's safe to say Keller and the Yotes are hot right now. So, coming in at $6,600 and averaging 12.4 fantasy points, this is a quality splurge. 

W: mitch marner vs ottawa

When Marner's price tag is just $6,500, we've got to snag him. Fresh off a career-high 99 points last season, the Canadian is one of the best and most reliable in the NHL. Though to his standards he's off to a slower start with 24 points in 22 games, that still puts him on pace for 90 points to wrap up the season. His 12.3 fantasy points is still solid and he logs major ice time he can capitalize on. I like Marner to have himself a night against Toronto's provincial rivals. 

d: moritz seider vs san jose

One of the most underrated defensive pairings in the league with Jake Walman and Seider. The former Calder Trophy winner as the league's top rookie is off to a promising start on Detroit's top d-pairing. Currently, the 22-year-old is on pace for a career-high 56 points. 

D: jake walman vs san jose

Speaking of Walman, might as well grab 'em both while we're here. The 27-year-old is the anchor to the d-pairing we just talked about so there's no reason the two won't have another sturdy night against the Sharks

G: connor ingram vs philadelphia

Ingram is coming off a week where he was given the honor as the NHL's first star of the week after he went 3-0 with a 9.47 SV% and a 1.63 GAA. He is averaging an insane 18.1 fantasy points and carrying a 9.30 SV% this season. We want him on our bench!

UTIL: tony DeAngelo vs calgary

Here's the part where we got to scrape around for some value. DeAngelo, as we are well aware, is a guy who wears his heart on his sleeve and battles every night. He's eclipsed the 50-point mark twice in his career, so he's not shy to put up numbers. Sure, seven points in 16 games isn't Hart Trophy material. But, for $2,900, we'll take our chances with that profit.
