    The start of the NHL season is right around the corner, that is why we are excited to announce for the first time DraftKings we will be offering preseason hockey DFS!

    Our first preseason set will be this coming Monday September 17th, this historic game slate is expected to be posted in the DraftKings lobby this afternoon. We will not be including any split squad games during preseason, and our contests will only support games that take place in NHL rinks.

    In addition, our preseason sets will include satellites into two of our biggest games to start the season. We also intend to offer satellites for these contests during NFL weekends.

    1) $5 Puck Drop Special on opening night, Wednesday Oct 3rd
    2) $275 Icebreaker Special on Thursday Oct 4

    Since DraftKings has not offered NHL Preseason previously, we decided to start off with slightly conservative guarantees. You have our commitment to continue to grow the games as they fill – and then of course step on the gas once the regular season starts!

    He finished at 7.5! Pretty good for a min salary D! He still won’t make the team though.

    I’m at -$7 but I have Nilsson in almost every lineup (90%+). There’s a lot of potential!

    I had Columbus with all those and Dallas. It’s the Columbus and Dallas game that has me winning the micro booster. Looks like I’m gonna hang on to win it. Nilsson isn’t doing very good.

    Every save by Nilsson makes me swing by like $30! Good luck on your win Blahaaron! I don’t think we’re in the same contests.

    Good luck man! Third period coming up. It’s good to feel nervous again.

  • Blahaaron

    Managed to hang on with 40.20. First microbooster win of the year.
    So many power plays though for Vancouver. Pettersson had me worried.

    What was the highest scores in the other games?

  • yisman

    Very bad first day

    I was all about Vancouver and Colorado

    Well if I have strike 3 tonight I’m done with this preseason! I thought we had this figured out and had an “edge”. Oh well just makes me that much more excited for regular season.

    And Blahaaron I hope you at least entered a few satty’s because you would have cleaned up! Congrats on the win regardless. Golf and my take 3 for NHL. I’m 0 for there so far so hopefully it can turn around. Riding the chalk until it hits!!!

    and its up, took the liberty to post the first line.

    I did enter a few sattys But not the right lineup lol. It’s ok though, I’m happy. As for pre season, just do what you do in the regular season. Nothing has changed. Just all you have to do is make sure they’re playing. Pick a few top lines and play them with moderate priced lines. That’s all there is to it

    41.80 in the $3 contest, 45.30 in the $8 contest.

    I ended up losing money. Should have went with Hutton. I would have finished 1st in the $3 and 2nd in the $8!

    Yeah I hate that. I’ve had that happen plenty of times but it pays off when you pick the right one. In a perfect world you enter all your lineups in satty’s but that isn’t always possible/practical.

    Last night I just picked the wrong top lines but loved my lineups haha On last shot tonight and I can play some “bum” Wings!
