New Jersey Devils DFS SPIN
Jack Hughes is expected to miss Sunday’s game versus Chicago, but his upper-body injury isn’t as bad as it could have been, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.
Hughes sustained the injury during Friday’s 4-1 loss to St. Louis. He’s been off to a tremendous start, scoring five goals and 20 points in 10 contests. Hughes is the cornerstone of the Devils’ offense, so if his absence proves to be short, then that will be a great relief for New Jersey. While he’s unavailable, Michael McLeod, who has averaged 13:32 of ice time this season, might be asked to play a bigger role.
Chicago Blackhawks DFS SPIN
Connor Bedard scored a goal on two shots in the Blackhawks’ 5-2 victory over the Panthers on Saturday. Bedard scored a goal off the rush to extend the Blackhawks’ lead to 4-0. This goal gives the Canadian forward goals in four of his last five games. He will continue to play a major role in the Blackhawks’ offense, playing on the first line and first power-play unit.
