There are 10 games across the NHL tonight with some great match ups—Chicago is in Boston to take on the Bruins, Halak and the Islanders are back in St. Louis to face the Blues and in late-night action, the Wild will face off with the Sharks out in San Jose.
The Daily Goalie Rankings now has DraftKings salary as well as my top ‘Good Value’ and ‘Bad Value‘ one-day Fantasy Hockey goalie starts.
Here are my rankings for all of the Likely or Confirmed goalies in the order of who I think will be the best Fantasy starts tonight. Rankings will be based off of matchups, recent performance, injuries etc. and follow standard fantasy stats: Wins, GAA, SV%, SO.
This is a useful tool to help you decide which goalies to play on a given night. If you have three goalies and they are ranked below at 3, 5 and 9 then you play the ones ranked #3 and #5. However, remember to be careful starting goalies who are Likely over ones who are Confirmed. While Likely starter’s usually start, it is not confirmed for a reason!
