Welcome into NHL player projections central for the season on Underdog Fantasy! Player projections 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 10 games on tap around the NHL and plenty of options for player props! I have highlighted a trio of plays that I will be following tonight that includes 3 players around the league for the Vancouver Canucks, Minnesota Wild and Tampa Bay Lightning! Good luck to everyone on the plays tonight, let's win some cheddar!
NHL Underdog Fantasy Top Picks November 28
Brock Boeser, Vancouver Canucks - HIGHER than 2.5 Shots On Goal
When the Canucks are at home against a weaker opponent this season you know to hammer the shots on goal plays for them as they let it rip! There were a few players I liked in this matchup but Boeser had a fair line with shots and has been consistent over the past 15 games against 2.8 shots. He should maintain that average today as well against a Ducks team that is allowing 32.1 shots on goal per game.
Kirill Kaprizov, Minnesota Wild - HIGHER than 3.5 Shots on Goal
I'm riding the unhappy superstar gets a fresh start narrative here tonight as the Wild move into a new era after firing their head coach yesterday. When these things happen everyone gets a reset and Kaprizov needs one more than anyone on the team. Lucky for him the Wild play the Blues tonight who allow 32.15 shots per game and that makes him a play for sure. Kappy has also averaged 4.3 shots on goal in 12 career games against the Blues so let's ride him to go higher on his shots tonight.
Nikita Kucherov, Tampa Bay Lightning - HIGHER than 4.0 Shots on Goal
Kucherov is playing his best hockey this season since he won the Hart trophy back in 2019. He has 36 points heading into tonight which is the most the NHL and in the process he has averaged 4.6 shots on goal per game. His line is 3.5 shots tonight and that's a number he has topped in 9 of his last 10 games, the Coyotes are allowing 32.5 shots per game this season and this seems like a slam dunk
