Daily Fantasy Hockey Notebook | 01-09-18

Updated: January 9, 2018 at 2:53 pm by Brock Seguin

The NHL “bye weeks” are upon us so the schedule is wonky this week. After just one-game on Monday the NHL returns with a seven-game slate on Tuesday.

Whether you spend your entire day at work or school, it can be difficult to stay on top of all NHL news. That’s why I have created the Daily Fantasy Notebook, so you can catch up on everything you might have missed throughout the day.

The notebook will be released everyday after teams wrap up their morning skate. It will include a number of things: Injury updates, projected lines, goalie rankings and DFS value picks.
