Daily Fantasy Hockey Goalie Rankings: December 29th

Updated: December 29, 2015 at 4:09 pm by Brock Seguin

Lehtonen-Kari(2)

My Top 3 Netminder are:

  1. Kari Lehtonen – Lehtonen is coming off of a 22-save shutout against a good Blues team, tonight he faces a bad Blue Jackets team that he already beaten this season. Lehtonen comes in at 7-0-0 wit ha 2.24 GAA and .922 SV% on the road. Lock up the W.
  2. Roberto Luongo – Luongo has won five in a row while posting a 1.55 GAA and .936 SV% and tonight he faces a Canadiens team in the second game of a back-to-back, starting a netminder who had a 3.47 GAA in the AHL prior to Monday’s trade.
  3. Jake Allen – Allen has won four of his last five starts while posting a strong 1.98 GAA and .934 SV%. Tonight will be his third start against the Predators—he has gone 2-0-0 with a 0.50 GAA, .986 SV% and one shutout in the first two. I’m cool with that.

Unconfirmed

Nashville Predators – Pekka Rinne / Carter Hutton – Rinne started last night and gave up three goals on 29 shots in the win. The Predators did not name a netminder, so we will likely have to wait until pregame warmups (7:30 p.m. ET) to find out who gets the nod.

Los Angeles Kings – Jonathan Quick / Jhonas Enroth – Quick posted a 27-save shutout last night, so they could turn to their star netminder again or go to Enroth, but we won’t know until pregame warmups (8:30 p.m. ET).

Chicago Blackhawks – Corey Crawford / Scott Darling – It is strange that the Blackhawks have not announced a starter yet. They didn’t play last night and don’t play tomorrow, which suggests that there was no announcement because it will be Corey Crawford, who has lost his last two.

Good Value Starts Bad Value Starts
Kari Lehtonen – @ CBJ – ($7,100) Jimmy Howard – @ WPG – ($7,300)
Karri Ramo – vs. ANA – ($7,000) Curtis McElhinney – vs. DAL – ($7,100)
Connor Hellebuyck – vs. DET – ($6,800) Keith Kinkaid – vs. CAR – ($6,900)
