High Salary W
Patrick Kane-Chicago Blackhawks ($8,900): Kane has started another point streak, and while it’s nowhere near the 26-game streak he had earlier this season, it could be the beginning of another long one. Kane picked up an assist Wednesday to extend the streak and now has 10 points over the last six games. A very good matchup with Buffalo awaits tonight. Get Kane into your lineup.
Taylor Hall-Edmonton Oilers ($7,500): Hall trails just Kane tonight in fantasy points per game with 4.8. He has been producing at a point-per-game pace with 16 goals and 25 assists in 41 games. Hall has been quiet lately with just two points in this last six games, but don’t let that fool you. He has the talent to produce at a high rate each night.
Vladimir Tarasenko-St. Louis Blues ($8,000): Tarasenko shows up as a top winger target every night the Blues are in action and there’ no coincidence in that. He is one of the best wingers in the NHL and has been on a tear this season with 24 goals and 19 assists. He recorded a goal and an assist on Wednesday and now has points in three straight games. You can hardly go wrong with Tarasenko.
High Value W
Cam Atkinson-Columbus Blue Jackets ($4,500): There have been some trade rumors circling around Atkinson but for now he’ll stay in Columbus. He’s having a fantastic season with 25 points so far. He currently has a four-game point streak and gets another good chance against Carolina tonight to keep it going. He’s averaging three points a game and should be in your lineup.
Loui Eriksson ($5,500): Eriksson can get overshadowed a bit in Boston but he’s been a steady fantasy producer for the last several years. He picked up a goal on Tuesday night versus Washington and has points in four of the last five games. With nine points in the last nine games he makes a good selection for your lineup tonight.
