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 14 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 Boston Bruins, Anaheim Ducks and Florida Panthers! Good luck to everyone on the plays tonight, let's win some cheddar!


NHL Underdog Fantasy Top Picks December 4

Jack Eichel, Vegas Golden Knights - HIGHER than 3.5 Shots On Goal

Eichel has been up and down when its come to shots on goal this season but when the matchup is right he gets after it! Eichel to his credit as gone higher than 3.5 goals in 60% of games this season and is averaging 4.1 shots per game, I've just been burned but I am ready to forgive him. The St. Louis Blues allow 32.52 shots on goal this season, the 6th most in NHL and they've been slumping overall. Seems like a great spot for Eichel and the Golden Knights this evening. 

Jared McCann, Seattle Kraken - HIGHER than 3.0 Shots on Goal

The line is 3.5 on most sportsbooks today but over at Underdog Fantasy you can get McCann to go higher than an even 3 shots which gives a nice safe floor in my opinion. McCann is the best forward the Kraken have and it means he's on the ice all the time, over 20 minutes per game on occasion. He has averaged exactly 3 shots per game this season but has 13 over his last 3 games and the Montreal Canadiens allow 34.17 shots per game the 3rd most in the NHL, he's going take this play higher!


BONUS - Connor McMichael, Washington Capitals - HIGHER than 1.5 Shots on Goal
