The Fix always has a full breakdown of significant NHL slates for our Front Office subscribers, but now we’re also going to be highlighting a few value plays for everyone on most days with big NHL slates. Below you’ll find three or four players who are cheap and undervalued in today’s DraftKings, FanDuel and Fantasy Draft contests.

Sven Andrighetto—Montreal Canadiens—DK:$3200, FD:$300, FDraft:$6400
Andrighetto hasn’t had a ton of production over the last ten games, scoring two goals and adding an assist, but with Dale Weise and Tomas Fleischmann now a part of the Chicago Blackhawks, the team will need Andrighetto to fill a top six spot on a regular basis. As long as he plays alongside the best players on the team, he’s an option to consider when looking for salary relief and some scoring upside. Tonight is an excellent opportunity for Andrighetto to show the Canadiens he deserves to finish the season with the club.
Vincent Lecavalier—Los Angeles Kings—DK:$3100, FD:$3600, FDraft:$6100
The L.A Kings are a force to be reckoned with. Their lineup is solid all around and a big part of that is because of Vincent Lecavalier. The former first overall pick has found new life since being traded to the Kings earlier this season and he’s contributing on a fairly regular basis. He’s not going to score every night, but in favourable matchups like this one, Lecavalier is worth a look. The Sabres have very little depth after their top two lines, making Vinny an excellent low risk/high reward candidate for tonight.
Peter Holland—Toronto Maple Leafs—DK:$3700, FD:$3200, FDraft:$$7400
This is a pure gut play. The Toronto Maple Leafs are auditioning jobs for next season, and Peter Holland is getting a real chance to show the team he deserves to be here next year. The Leafs have so little depth right now that Holland is seeing time on the team’s top power play unit. At his price tag, that’s beyond a bargain. The Montreal Canadiens haven’t exactly been good at keeping the puck out of the net ever since Carey Price went down with a lower-body injury, so expect Peter to get more than enough chances to score some goals.
