Daily Fantasy Hockey Goalie Rankings: December 22nd

Updated: December 22, 2016 at 3:37 pm by Brock Seguin

Rinne-Pekka

Tonight is the second last night of NHL hockey before the Christmas break and it should be a great night of puck. The Blue Jackets vs. Penguins should be an unreal game as both teams come in with a combined 18-0-2 record in their last 20 games—impressive. We’ll also see two of the league’s best goalies, Carey Price and Devan Dubnyk will go head-to-head.

For those of you who have used this site for years, you have almost certainly seen my Daily Goalie rankings before. For those of you who are new, here is a little blow-by-blow.

On evenings where there are eight-plus games on the NHL schedule, I rank every goalie from 1-to-x (x=number of goalies playing that night) to help you decide which goalies to start that night. I take into account all standard Fantasy Hockey goalie statistics such as Wins, GAA and SV%. This is a fantastic tool for both year-long and daily fantasy players.

For year-long players, I am constantly faced with the questions: Pick two between Goalie X, Y or Z. Or something along those lines. Instead of answer each question individually, I have made it simple for anyone who has goalie questions to see who I would start. So, if Goalie X is ranked fourth, Goalie Y is ranked 2nd and Goalie Z is ranked 9th. Then you would start Goalies X and Y that night. Simple enough right! Good. Moving along.

For Daily players, I have listed the prices of each of tonight’s starting goalies from both DraftKings and FanDuel. If you’ve built your roster and you have $8,200 left, then pick my top goalie under $8,200. Or if you start building your roster with the best goalie that night, pick my top goalie or upper-tier goalie with the best value.

Unconfirmed

Philadelphia Flyers: Tonight is the second night of a back-to-back for the Flyers and Steve Mason was a busy man last night, Anthony Stolarz is from New Jersey… I’m thinking it’s Stolarz tonight.

Anaheim Ducks: There was no news from the Ducks morning skate, but it should definitely by John Gibson tonight.
