NHL Daily Fantasy Helper: Monday 12/18/17

Evgeni Malkin is red-hot, and the Penguins have the night's top implied total. Who else should you check out for NHL DFS?

A good chunk of you probably already play daily fantasy football, and I'd be willing to bet a significant portion have also tried out daily fantasy basketball and baseball. But hockey? Hockey?

It's time to give it a try over on FanDuel, because it's a ton of fun. And our analysis and projections can help you win.

To help, let's take a look at some goalies, high-priced skaters, and lower-priced players to target for today's slate.

Goalie to Target

Tuukka Rask ($8,200): No team has a money line above -157 tonight, so there are no great plays in net on this slate. But Rask has been solid recently, picking up at least a real-world point in each of his past six starts, winning five of them. He also gets a great matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets, who rank 26th in the league with an average of 2.58 goals per game. The Blue Jackets should give Rask plenty of opportunity to rack up saves as they average the fifth-most (34.70) shots per game.
