Rickard Rakell (FDraft: $13,000 DK: $6,400 FD: $7,300): Tonight’s lone daily fantasy NHL Must-Have gets a nice matchup on home ice when the Chicago Blackhawks travel to Anaheim to take on the Ducks. The Ducks are favorites (-140) in a game with a total set at 5.5 goals. The Blackhawks have been terrible defensively this year, as their 3.7 GAA ranks them second-to-last in the league. The Ducks have also struggled offensively, as they only average 2.3 goals per game, but this is the perfect matchup to get their offense going. Rakell has chipped in 20 points (5G, 15A), to go along with 85 shots on net in 29 games played. Rakell was a 30-goal scorer last year and is sitting at a 5.2% shooting percentage, far below his career average of 13%, so we expect positive regression to come his way very soon. He has two straight games where he has recorded a multi-point effort, and has a prime matchup to keep up the solid play. The Hawks give up 34 shots on net per game, and this bodes well for Rakell who currently fires the puck on net more than times per game. Make sure you lock Rakell in with confidence tonight as our lone Must-Have.
