Daily Fantasy Hockey Goalie Rankings: March 9th

Updated: March 9, 2017 at 4:11 pm by Brock Seguin


There is a fat 10-game slate tonight with a number of huge games.

  • The Maple Leafs will host the Flyers in a key playoff battle—Toronto is one point back for the final Wild Card spot and the Flyers are just two points back of them.
  • A red-hot Flames team will host an equally impressive Canadiens team.
  • The night will cap-off with a matchup between the Sharks and Capitals—a battle of two of the top teams in the NHL.

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 DraftKings. 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.
