Sebastian Aho (DK: $6,300 FD: $7,000): The Carolina Hurricanes will host the New York Rangers in what should be a fun game to watch tonight. The Hurricanes are one of the most dominant teams in the league, and the Rangers to simply put it, are not. Carolina has the highest implied total on the slate at 4.05 goals tonight, and their star center should have plenty of scoring chances. Aho plays on the Canes top line and top power play unit, so he sees ample ice time. After starting the year a little slow, Aho has three goals and four assists over their last six games. Aho has performed phenomenally so far this season but has been unlucky and unable to find the back of the net. Aho currently ranks 7th in the league in high-danger chances with 27 and 2nd behind only Ovechkin in expected goals at 7.12 on the season. The Rangers rank 31st, giving up over 15 high-danger chances per game, so Aho will have plenty of scoring room tonight. With the Rangers playing their second game in two nights, we expect Aho to explode and suggest you lock him in.
Brock Boeser (DK: $6,900 FD: $7,400): The Vancouver Canucks travel to Chicago to take on the Blackhawks in what they hope to be a bounce-back game after a tough 2-1 loss to St. Louis on Tuesday. If there is any team to bounce back against this season, it is the Blackhawks. Over the Blackhawks last four games, they have given up a league-high average of 42.5 shots against, 33.5 scoring chances against, and 14 high-danger chances against per game. Boeser is the Canucks top shooter playing on the team’s top line and top power play unit. Boeser is red-hot right now, scoring five goals and adding four assists to the stat sheet over the last six. One of the key’s for Vancouver is the power play where they have drawn the most penalties, allowing them to average four power plays per game, and converting at 21%. Meanwhile, the Blackhawks have been poor, ranking 20th on the penalty kill at 80%. We expect this Vancouver top line to take advantage of Chicago tonight, and suggest you lock this elite winger in.
