DraftKings price: $5,400
You simply can't beat this price for arguably the hottest forward in the NHL. He's playing with Alex Ovechkin and T.J. Oshie at even strength, and busted out for five points (including a hat trick bonus), seven shots on goal and one block last Friday against the Edmonton Oilers (18.5 DraftKings points!). He has points in four of his past five and multipoint outings on three occasions.
