NHL DFS Top Value Plays for Friday 2/17/23

NHL DFS Top Value Plays

Friday’s NHL slate features five games with all 10 teams well-rested and ready to compete. Chicago will visit Ottawa, Pittsburgh will face the Islanders in New York, Minnesota will host Dallas, while LA will cross-town to play the Ducks, and the Rangers will be in Edmonton. With a full complement of rested teams, there are no clear advantages for any team. However, below are some of our suggested NHL DFS Top Value Plays for creating an effective DFS lineup for Friday’s slate.


NHL DFS Top Value Plays for Friday 2/17/23

Value Goalies

Mads Sogaard, OTT vs. CHI

With Ottawa’s top two goalies out with injuries, the Senators have called up young netminder Mads Sogaard from the AHL. Sogaard made his first start of the season against the Flames and it was an impressive one, as he only allowed three goals on 37 shots.

Now, he faces the Chicago Blackhawks who have the 32nd-ranked offense in the NHL, meaning Sogaard will have a good chance to win his second straight start. The Senators have won six of their last seven games, while the Blackhawks have lost three straight and have only scored three goals combined during that stretch.

Alex DeBrincat, OTT vs. CHI

Alex DeBrincat will face his former team, the Chicago Blackhawks, for the first time since he was traded to the Ottawa Senators in the offseason. DeBrincat is a skilled goal-scorer and has been having a good season so far with 18 goals and 26 assists in 53 games.

He had a four-game point streak snapped on Tuesday but is still a great value play for DFS on Friday. He had 41 goals last season and has hit the 41-goal mark twice in his six-year career.

Taylor Raddysh, CHI at OTT

Taylor Raddysh is a good value play if you’re looking to fill out your roster with an inexpensive player. He has been playing on the second line as well as the first power-play unit for the Chicago Blackhawks and has 14 goals and 24 points in 53 games.

Raddysh has been especially effective on the power play, with five goals and 10 points. He had a hot streak earlier this season with four goals and nine points in nine games, and although he has been held pointless in his last five games, he is due for a breakout game.

Derek Grant, ANH vs. LA

Derek Grant is a solid value play for DFS on Friday, as he is riding a two-game point streak with three assists. He has been skating on a line with Ryan Strome and Trevor Zegras, which has given him a good chance to pick up points. Grant has only six goals and 15 points in 50 games this season, but he has been a consistent scorer throughout his career and could be due for a breakout game.

Patrick Kane, CHI at OTT

Patrick Kane’s name has been in trade rumors recently, and he may be playing his last few games as a Chicago Blackhawk. Kane has a no-trade clause, which means he can pick the team he wants to go to if he is traded.

He is likely looking to make a good impression for any interested teams and is a solid DFS play on Friday. Although he only has 35 points in 50 games this season, he had a huge impact against Ottawa last season, with four goals and three assists in just two games.

In conclusion, Friday’s NHL DFS slate presents some exciting opportunities for finding top value plays. By carefully analyzing matchups, recent form, and other key factors, you can identify players who are poised to outperform their salaries and deliver big fantasy returns.
