Leon Draisaitl (Edmonton) - C - $9,900 (FanDuel), $8,800 (DraftKings), $35 (Yahoo)

Draisaitl has been a scoring machine this season with a league-leading 15 goals and 31 points through 14 games. He has three straight multi-point efforts going into Tuesday’s matchup against Winnipeg, with five goals and three assists over that span. Additionally, Draisaitl lit up the Jets for seven goals and 12 points in nine games last season.

Jordan Kyrou (St. Louis) - W - $6,100 (FanDuel), $4,800 (DraftKings), $18 (Yahoo)

Kyrou has been rolling again offensively after cooling from his red hot start to the 2021-22 season. He has four goals and two assists over a four-game point streak entering Tuesday’s favorable matchup against Arizona. He has 15 shots on goal during that stretch as well as four points on the power play (two goals, two assists). Kyrou had two goals and two assists in a 7-4 win over the Coyotes back on Oct. 18

Matt Duchene (Nashville) - W - $6,100 (FanDuel), $6,200 (DraftKings), C - $20 (Yahoo)

Duchene has lit the lamp seven times in his past seven outings, including each of the last three contests. He has 11 points during that seven-game stretch and he will go into Tuesday’s match against Toronto with four goals and two assists over a three-game point streak. Duchene has been white hot following a sluggish start to the year.

Ryan Getzlaf (Anaheim) - C - $5,900 (FanDuel), $5,600 (DraftKings), $18 (Yahoo)

Getzlaf has racked up 16 assists and 17 points in 16 games this campaign. The veteran center has six helpers during a three-game point streak and he is just point away from 1,000 for his NHL career. Getzlaf can also be stacked with Troy Terry, who is riding an incredible 14-game scoring spree.

Ryan Strome (NY Rangers) - C - $5,500 (FanDuel), $4,700 (DraftKings), $18 (Yahoo)

Strome has generated six of his eight points in six games this month. That includes one goal and three helpers during a three-game point streak. It certainly helps that linemate Artemi Panarin started to heat up at the end of October and they have plenty of stack potential on Tuesday against Montreal.

Bargain Bin: Andrew Mangiapane (CGY) - W - $5,200 (FanDuel), $4,900 (DraftKings), $17 (Yahoo), Reilly Smith (VGK) - W - $ 4,900 (FanDuel), $4,800 (DraftKings), $19 (Yahoo), Mats Zuccarello (MIN) - $4,700 (FanDuel), $5,800 (DraftKings), $20 (Yahoo), Tyler Bertuzzi (DET) - W - $5,000 (FanDuel), $21 (Yahoo)

Alex Pietrangelo (Vegas) - $6,800 (FanDuel), $7,400 (DraftKings), $26 (Yahoo)

Pietrangelo has accounted for three goals and eight points in his past six contests. He has 19 shots and 11 blocks during that span as well as four power-play points (one goal, three assists). His category coverage has made him a superb play this month.

Oliver Kylington (Calgary) - $4,100 (FanDuel), $3,500 (DraftKings), $16 (Yahoo)

Kylington has compiled 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in his last 10 games. He has been held off the scoresheet once during that stretch. He will carry a three-game point spree into Tuesday’s matchup against Philadelphia after his six-game point streak ended. Kylington is a good value play on defense.

Bargain Bin: Shayne Gostisbehere (ARI) - $5,000 (FanDuel), $4,500 (DraftKings), $18 (Yahoo), Jared Spurgeon (MIN) - $4,800 (FanDuel), $5,500 (DraftKings), $17 (Yahoo), Tony DeAngelo (CAR) - $5,200 (FanDuel), $5,300 (DraftKings), $19 (Yahoo), Filip Hronek (DET) - $4,200 (FanDuel), $4,200 (DraftKings), $15 (Yahoo)


Jacob Markstrom (Calgary) - $7,800 (FanDuel), $7,800 (DraftKings), $38 (Yahoo)

Markstrom has watched the past two games from the bench, so a return to the crease on Tuesday wouldn’t be a surprise. He has lost his past two starts, but he has played very well this season and has plenty of bounce-back appeal against Philadelphia’s struggling offense. The Flyers have been held to two goals or fewer in each of the last five games. Markstrom has five wins in 11 starts this year and four of them have been shutouts.

Bargain Bin: Juuse Saros (NSH) - $7,200 (FanDuel), $7,100 (DraftKings), $33 (Yahoo), Alex Nedeljkovic (DET) - $7,000 (FanDuel), $7,300 (DraftKings), $28 (Yahoo), John Gibson (ANA) - $7,100 (FanDuel), $7,500 (DraftKings), $30 (Yahoo)
