This article is part of ours Yahoo DFS Hockey series

It’s another busy Thursday in the NHL with 10 games available. The Hurricanes are the only tired team playing on Thursday as they host the Oilers after a 3-0 loss to the Panthers in Florida. Below are suggested options for creating an effective byline.

PORTER

Alexander GeorgievCOL vs. NAS ($38): Georgiev has been everything the Avalanche could have asked for in net, after dealing the Rangers’ offseason for him. Georgiev is 6-1-1 with a 2.61 GAA and .925 save percentage this season. The Avalanche thought so much of his game that they started him in both games last week in Finland, something most teams playing in Europe have never done. He faces the Predators who have struggled this season.

GOALKEEPER TO AVOID

Hair in SarosNAS to COL ($22): It hasn’t been a good start to the season for Saros, who is 3-6-1 with a 3.47 GAA and .892 save percentage. His save percentage is 22 points lower than his NHL-worst season to date, a .914 mark in 2019-20. Saros was awful in his last outing on Tuesday, giving up four goals on six shots against Seattle before being pulled just 16:25 into the first period. They face the 2022 Stanley Cup champion Avalanche on the road in what should be another tough outing.

CENTER

Jack EichelVGK to BUF ($29): Eichel returns to Buffalo for the second time since his trade a year ago. He fell off the scoreboard the first time around, but this time he’s back at full health, still feeling the effects of last season’s disc replacement surgery. Eichel is on a six-game hitting streak with three goals and eight points, and has six goals and 15 points in 14 games this season.

CENTER TO AVOID

Logan Couture, SJ to STL ($16): Couture has four goals and eight points in 14 games this season, but has only had one standout performance. Had a pair of goals and an assist against Toronto on October 27th. Outside of this contest, he has just two goals and five points in 13 games with just one assist in his last four games. Couture is 33 years old and while he sees the first six minutes and plays on the power play first unit, he is not a good DFS option.

WING

Artemi PanarinNEW in IT ($29): Panarin is off to another great start with five goals and 19 points in 14 games, tying him for fifth in scoring. He had a goal and four assists against Detroit last season while scoring once and getting two helpers in his only game in Motown. Panarin is averaging 4:22 of power play time per game this season, the most of his eight-year career.

Alex DeBrincat, OTT in NJ ($22): DeBrincat hasn’t scored as well as he has in the past, with just two in 12 games, but he has nine assists so far. He had great success against the Devils last season while in Chicago, scoring once and adding three assists in just two games. DeBrincat has scored 41 goals in two of his previous five seasons and, at 24, is quite capable of scoring at any time.

WINGS TO AVOID

Vladimir TarasenkoSTL vs. SJ ($26): It has not been a good start to the season for Tarasenko and the Blues. St. Louis has lost eight straight after a perfect 3-0-0 start, while Tarasenko has two goals and an assist during the losing streak after starting the season with two goals and six points in three wins The Blues are not scoring goals, having scored five goals in their last four games, and until they prove they are out of the slump, every St. Louis should be considered risky.

Patrick Kane, WHO in LA ($25): While Kane is off to a good start with two goals and 10 points in 12 games, the Kings shut him out a week ago at home, and now it’s LA for the rematch. Kane has been under a point per game just once in his last 10 seasons, but at 33 years old and with the possibility of this being his final season in Chicago, this might not be the best time to have him on your roster. alignment .

DEFENSE

Erik Karlsson, SJ to STL ($24): There is no defenseman in the NHL hotter than Karlsson, who is on a five-game hitting streak with seven goals and 13 points. He has been excellent all season as he has 10 goals and 19 points in 14 games, good enough to be tied for fifth in the NHL’s scoring race. That’s across the league, not just among defensemen. Karlsson has returned to the form he had when he was with Ottawa, and the trade of Brent Burns to Carolina in the offseason is a big reason why he is the undisputed top dog on defense for the Sharks this season.

Moritz Seider, THAT vs. NEW ($19): Looking at Seider’s stats will make you wonder why you should have him in your lineup. He has just five assists in 13 games, but has recently come up with four in his last five games. Seider was the Calder Trophy winner last season with seven goals and 50 points, and is showing signs of a comeback.

DEFENSE TO AVOID

Matthias EkholmNAS to COL ($18): Ekholm has just one goal and five points in 13 games. He is averaging just 1.77 shots on goal per game, which is down significantly from the last three seasons when he averaged 2.13 shots per game. The Predators haven’t been great this season, going 5-7-1 and scoring just 35 goals in 13 games. While he sees action on the second unit on the power play, he hasn’t been a man-advantage specialist over the past four seasons with 12 assists since the start of the 2019-20 campaign.

Hampus Lindholm, BOS vs. CGY ($19): While Lindholm has been terrific with four goals and 13 points in 13 games, including four assists on the power play, he could be about to lose his prime spot as Charlie McAvoy could make his season debut on Thursday. That move would push Lindholm into the second power play unit, which would significantly cut into his upside. Fade it out until its role becomes clearer.
