Nikolaj Ehlers (DK: $6,900 FD: $7,000): Tonight the Winnipeg Jets take on the Vancouver Canucks in a game where we could see fireworks. Right now Vegas has the total set for 6 goals, with the Canucks being very slight favorites to win this one. The Canucks have struggled mightily this year during 5v5 play, as they come into this game giving up over 207 HDCA this year, which is the most in the entire league. Ehlers is enjoying a very nice season so far, as he has 18 points (10G, 8A), to go along with 61 shots in net in 17 games played. This should be a defense that Ehlers can exploit tonight, as he has been an absolute menace during 5v5 play this year. He comes into this game firing over 16 High-danger chances this year, but he also has the 12th highest ixG in the league, which should indicate he could find himself on the score sheet tonight. He also has pretty solid upside for the SOG bonus, as he fires the puck on net over 3.5 times per game, which leads all Winnipeg skaters. Ehlers makes for an all around solid play tonight, so make sure he’s the first name you all lock into your lineups tonight.
