Each day during the 2015-16 season, NHL.com's fantasy staff will identify one player at each position worth owning in DraftKings daily fantasy hockey contests. Based on factors including but not limited to matchups, line combinations, power-play usage, statistical coverage and recent production, we'll provide you with lower-priced options that can help you build a winning lineup.
Jason Spezza, C, Dallas Stars
DraftKings price: $5,900
The formula for picking players in the Stars at Calgary Flames game Tuesday is simple: Dallas leads the NHL with an average of 3.5 goals per game while Calgary is last in the League with a 3.58 goals-against average. Spezza has played well recently with four goals, one assist and 24 shots on goal in his past seven games. The veteran has also benefitted from having two days rest with five goals, one assist and 26 shots on goal in seven games. But if DraftKings owners want an even bigger bargain against Calgary they can go with Cody Eakin ($4,000), who has one goal and five assists in the past six games.
