Who I like

Auston Matthews ($9,100). Next.

John Tavares ($6,900) has provided solid value all year and has eight points in eight games against Vancouver. I could see him keeping up that pace tonight.

Nick Foligno ($4,100) has gotten assists in each of his three games with Toronto so far, and I like his chances to keep it up tonight.

Around the NHL

I like Devan Dubnyk ($8,100) in net tonight for the Avs against the Sharks as well as teammate Cale Makar ($6,100). He has six points in three games against San Jose this year.

Ryan McLeod ($2,500) is playing his fourth NHL game tonight, but bumps up the lineup playing alongside Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jesse Puljujarvi.
