Daily Fantasy Hockey Notebook πŸ““ β€” 04/16/19

Updated: April 16, 2019 at 3:21 pm by Brock Seguin

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 every day after teams wrap up their morning skate. It will include a number of things: Injury updates, projected lines, goalie rankings and DFS value picks.

Key Injuries/Lineup Changes


  • TBL: Nikita Kucherov (suspension) will be back in the lineup for Game 4.
  • STL: David Perron missed the morning skate but is expected to play in Game 4.
  • STL: Robby Fabbri will draw into the lineup after sitting as a healthy scratch for the first three games.


  • TBL: Alex Killorn (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Game 4.


  • TBL: Victor Hedman (undisclosed) will not play in Game 4.
  • STL: Zach Sanford will be a healthy scratch for Game 4.
  • SJS: Joe Thornton has been suspended for Game 4 for his illegal check to the head on Tomas Nosek.
