Welcome into NHL player prop central for the season on Underdog Fantasy! Player props are becoming one of the hottest growing things in hockey over the past few seasons and I have definitely taken notice as it adds yet another layer to a great game experience. Throughout this season you will find picks offered on the Underdog site that I find the most appealing as there are many to choose from so that's why I'm here to help you sift through the options. 

For today's slate, we have 11 games on tap around the NHL and plenty of options for player props! I have highlighted a set of 3 props that I will be following tonight that includes 3 players around the league for the Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning! Good luck to everyone on the props tonight, let's win some cheddar!


NHL Underdog Fantasy Top Picks November 9

Connor McDavid, Edmonton Oilers - HIGHER than 2.0 Points

Underdog probably could have made this line 3 or 4 points and I still would've taken it tonight against the Sharks. He hasn't played at an MVP level for much of the season but tonight will be different as San Jose is the worst team in the NHL by far and they are allowing 4.58 goals per game. There's just so much frustration from McDavid and the Oilers I think they exercise some demons on the poor Sharks tonight in a blowout win where McDavid has a huge night. 


Artemi Panarin, New York Rangers - HIGHER than 3.0 Shots on Goal

Panarin's props are just a must play every night until he shows any signs of slowing down. He is enjoying the best start of a season in his career right now with 20 points through 12 games and in addition the production in shots is another feat for the winger. In the 12 games he has played so far the bread man has averaged 3.7 shots on goals per game and has gone higher than 3 shots on goal in 7 games with 2 pushes. The Wild shouldn't do much to slow him down either as their defense is stinky and they allow 32.92 shots per game. 

Nikita Kucherov, Tampa Bay Lightning - HIGHER than 4.0 Shots On Goal

At this point Underdog is trying to nerf the props of Kucherov and I fully understand why, the man is a menace. 4 shots on goal is a tall order for any player in the NHL but over the course of this season Kuch has gone higher than the line in 8 of 13 games with 1 push. More recently he has gone higher than the line in 5 straight games and has collected a total of 29 shots on goal during that time. He will play Chicago tonight who allows 35.09 shots on goal per game this season, good luck Blackhawks.
