Daily Fantasy Hockey Notebook πŸ“’ β€” 04/17/19

Updated: April 17, 2019 at 4:19 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.

  • CGY: Jusso Valimaki is expected to draw into the Flames lineup for Game 4.
