Tuesday has 10 games on the schedule.


Patrice Bergeron (Boston) - C - $7,100 (FanDuel), $7,400 (DraftKings), $28 (Yahoo)

Bergeron has collected four goals and one assist in his past two outings. The Bruins will be looking to rebound after struggling over the weekend and a matchup against Ottawa could be just what they need. Bergeron has seven markers and eight assists in his last nine outings versus the Senators. He can be stacked with Brad Marchand.

Matthew Tkachuk (Calgary) - W - $7,000 (FanDuel), $6,900 (DraftKings), $23 (Yahoo)

Tkachuk has accounted for five goals and four assists during a six-game point streak going into Tuesday’s match against San Jose. He has lit the lamp in each of his past four matches and he is coming off a four-point performance on Saturday. Tkachuk has been credited with 25 shots on goal during his hot streak. Additionally, he has six markers and 14 points in 14 career matches versus the Sharks.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (Edmonton) - W - $7,000 (FanDuel), C - $5,600 (DraftKings), W - $25 (Yahoo)

Nugent-Hopkins has collected 14 assists during a nine-game point streak. That includes nine helpers on the man advantage where he is granted exposure to Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl on Edmonton’s top unit. He is still searching for his first goal of the season through 10 games despite posting 20 shots on target, but that should come eventually.

Chandler Stephenson (Vegas) - C - $5,100 (FanDuel), $5,900 (DraftKings), $18 (Yahoo)

Stephenson leads the Golden Knights in scoring with 12 points (five goals, seven assists) through 12 games. He has continued to produce despite losing his original linemates due to injury. Stephenson has supplied one goal and two assists in his last three outings. He had one goal and one helper when Vegas played against Seattle earlier this season.

Bryan Rust (Pittsburgh) - W - $6,400 (FanDuel), $5,000 (DraftKings), $24 (Yahoo)

Rust returned to action from a lower-body injury on Saturday and made an immediate impact. He registered two assists and six shots on goal against Minnesota. Rust has one goal, three points and 13 shots in three appearances this year. He has five goals and one helper in six career matches against Chicago, which makes him an intriguing stack option with Jeff Carter and/or Jake Guentzel.

Bargain Bin: Alex Killorn (TB) - W - $5,600 (FanDuel), $5,000 (DraftKings), $20 (Yahoo), Troy Terry (ANA) - $5,400 (FanDuel), $5,900 (DraftKings), $18 (Yahoo), Carter Verhaeghe (FLA) - W - $4,900 (FanDuel), $4,400 (DraftKings), $ (Yahoo) Tyler Bertuzzi (DET) - W - $4,800 (FanDuel), $20 (Yahoo) Reilly Smith (VGK) - $4,600 (FanDuel), $4,900 (DraftKings), $17 (Yahoo), Adrian Kempe (LA) - W - $4,500 (FanDuel), $3,600 (DraftKings), $16 (Yahoo)

Tyson Barrie (Edmonton) - $5,800 (FanDuel), $4,800 (DraftKings), $22 (Yahoo)

Barrie has eight points, including six assists, in his past seven contests thanks in large part to three multi-point performances. He has that kind of upside again on Tuesday against Detroit, especially with the Red Wings’ penalty kill sitting 27th overall in the league.

Oliver Kylington (Calgary) - $4,000 (FanDuel), $3,000 (DraftKings), $15 (Yahoo)

Kylington has been red hot and offers plenty of bang for the buck upside. He has one goal and six assists during a six-game point spree going into Tuesday night’s action. Kylington has eight shots and five blocks over that stretch.

Bargain Bin: Tony DeAngelo (CAR) - $5,400 (FanDuel), $5,100 (DraftKings), $19 (Yahoo) Nicolas Hague (VGK) - $4,100 (FanDuel), $4,100 (DraftKings), $16 (Yahoo), Moritz Seider (DET) - $4,200 (FanDuel), $5,300 (DraftKings), $17 (Yahoo) Nate Schmidt (WPG) - $4,100 (FanDuel), $4,700 (DraftKings), $17 (Yahoo), Mike Reilly (BOS) - $3,900 (FanDuel), $2,500 (DraftKings), $14 (Yahoo)


Robin Lehner (Vegas) - $8,300 (FanDuel), $8,100 (DraftKings), $31 (Yahoo)

Lehner has stopped 74 of 77 shots in his past two games, which were victories over Ottawa and Montreal. He should see plenty of rubber again on Tuesday night against Seattle and could pile up fantasy points if he is up to the challenge again. Lehner made 28 saves on 31 shots in a 4-3 win over the Kraken back on Oct. 12.

Bargain Bin: John Gibson (ANA) - $6,800 (FanDuel), $7,100 (DraftKings), $28 (Yahoo), Cal Petersen (LA) - $7,000 (FanDuel), $7,400 (DraftKings), $26 (Yahoo)
