Rickard Rakell (DK: $6,600 FD: $6,100): Tonight, the Ducks will welcome the traveling Philadelphia Flyers into Anaheim in what should be a high-paced matchup, with an O/U of 5.5 goals, for our first Must-Have, Ducks’ center Rickard Rakell. Ryan Getzlaf seems to be scratched yet again tonight, which means Rakell will slide into the top line and top power play, where he will center both lines. Brian Elliott looks to be the starter for the Flyers, and so far this season he’s posted a record of 1-1, with a GAA of 3.04 and save % of .914 to start off the season. Rakell had a monster game in his first outing against Arizona, registering a goal and two assists with three shots on net. We could expect to see this same type of performance tonight, going against a weak defensive team in Philadelphia. Rakell offers high end production tonight, and our research is leading us to believe he could be in for another huge night. We will be locking him in with confidence as our first Must-Have of this 14-game slate tonight.
Max Domi (DK $4,800 FD: $5,000): Our second Must-Have of the night is Coyotes winger Max Domi. The Coyotes will welcome the Vegas Golden Knights, a great matchup for the young Coyotes team. Vegas will be playing their second game in as many nights, and fatigue should definitely play a factor in this one. The Coyotes are one of the biggest favorites on tonight’s slate, with the over/under being set for 5.5 goals. Domi will play his minutes on the team’s top line and top power play line, so the chances will definitely be there for him tonight. He was all over the ice during his first outing against Anaheim, registering a goal and assist with that goal coming on the man advantage, all while skating more than 19 minutes, good for 3rd out of all Coyotes forwards. Domi has been much better on home ice, posting 50 points (16G, 34A) in 68 games with a shooting percentage of 11% in his career. Malcolm Subban is the expected starter tonight, and this is a recipe for disaster for the Golden Knights. He’s bounced from team to team since joining the NHL a few years ago, and only has two career NHL starts under his belt, going 0-2 with a GAA of 5.81 and save % of .727. Not to mention this Coyotes team has one of the highest team totals on the slate at 3.5 goals, so they should have a field day tonight. All in all, this is one of the better matchups on the slate, and you’re going to want to lock in Domi with confidence tonight as our second Must-Have of the slate.
