Mark Scheifele (WPG) - W - $8,100 (FanDuel), $7,100 (DraftKings)
Scheifele produced two goals and added an assist in Tuesday’s win over Washington. He had one assist in his previous two outings since returning from a suspected shoulder injury. Scheifele could be poised to go on a run offensively and another multi-point effort may be in the cards Friday night when Colorado visits Winnipeg. The 24-year-old center has 12 goals and 28 points in 20 home games this year.
Alexander Radulov (DAL) - W - $6,700 (FanDuel), $6,700 (DraftKings)
Radulov has been a great addition to the Stars this season. He has tallied 21 goals and 53 points in 57 games. Radulov has piled up 21 points (seven goals, 14 assists) in the past 17 contests. He has earned two goals, one assist and 10 shots in three appearances versus St. Louis this year.
Mathew Barzal (NYI) - C - $6,400 (FanDuel), $6,300 (DraftKings)
Barzal hasn’t scored a goal in 14 games, but he has collected 15 assists during that span. The talented rookie has produced one goal and three helpers in two previous meetings versus Carolina.
Alexander Steen (STL) - W - $6,100 (FanDuel), $5,200 (DraftKings)
Steen has been red hot, scoring nine goals and eight assists in the last 17 matches. He also has two assists and six shots in two games against Dallas this year. Steen has been held off the scoresheet just six times in his past 22 outings.
Travis Konecny (PHI) - W - $5,900 (FanDuel), $5,500 (DraftKings)
Konecny has been firing on all cylinders with 10 goals and 17 points in his past 19 games. He has a very good price tag and plays in a great spot on the top line alongside Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier.
Ivan Provorov (PHI) - D - $5,200 (FanDuel), $5,000 (DraftKings)
Provorov can provide some bang for the buck Friday night. Columbus has been piling up shots, recording 50 or more in each of the last three games, so Philadelphia’s top shot blocker could be in store for a busy night in that regard. That could also make Flyers netminder Michal Neuvirth a high-risk, high-reward option. Provorov also has three points in five career contests against the Blue Jackets, including one goal and four shots in one match this campaign.
