NHL Daily Fantasy Helper: Tuesday 4/17/18

Artemi Panarin is in a sweet spot against the Capitals. Who else should you trust in 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, take a look at some goalies, high-priced skaters, and lower-priced players to target for today's three-game slate.

Goalie to Target

Jonathan Quick ($8,300): The Los Angeles Kings are down 3-0, which is hard to believe, and Quick will be in net for the slightly-favored Kings. He will be aided by having home-ice advantage against the Vegas Golden Knights, who score and allow 2.98 goals per game on the road. Vegas has scored only 10 goals over their previous five contests. Our models project Quick to have the best chance of a win among all goalies in action tonight, and we give him by far the best odds of a shutout. Devan Dubnyk is the night's second-best option, per our projections, and is $100 cheaper than Quick.
