NHL Grind Down: Thursday, January 3rd
The RotoGrinders NHL Grind Down article will give you an in-depth analysis into the NHL schedule. This article will break down the numbers for every single game and give you analysis on which trends you can exploit. While matchups are a major factor in daily fantasy hockey there are plenty of other factors to consider such as injuries, salaries, and more.
The analysis should point you in the right direction, but it is still up to you to decipher the information and make your own selections. Hockey is an extremely high variance sport. The best choice is not always the right choice but following the trends will win you money over time.

Minnesota Wild at Toronto Maple Leafs

Michael Hutchinson will not have to wait long to make his Leafs debut. After being acquired in a trade with Andersen hurt, Garret Sparks suffered an injury leaving the journeyman with an opportunity to steal the hearts of Leafs fans with a win at home against the Wild. He is very cheap and though I usually fade goalies on these slates, he is not priced up where starting goalies should be, which means a win would reach him to value.
