New Jersey Devils DFS SPIN
Simon Nemec registered two assists and three shots on goal in Friday’s 6-3 loss to the Sharks. Nemec set up Dawson Mercer’s first-period power-play goal and an even-strength tally by Ondrej Palat in the third. Nemec led all Devils blueliners with 22:38 of ice time in his NHL debut. The 19-year-old should be on the radar in all fantasy formats with Dougie Hamilton (pectoral) sidelined indefinitely. Nemec and Luke Hughes are poised to battle for power-play time, but there’s now enough room for both of them to also see top-four minutes at even strength.
Vancouver Canucks DFS SPIN
Quinn Hughes scored a goal in Saturday’s 4-3 win over the Flames. Hughes’ 11-game point streak ended Tuesday versus the Ducks, and he was also held scoreless Thursday against the Golden Knights. He quickly made sure the drought ended at two contests, scoring just 2:08 into Saturday’s victory. The goal was Hughes’ career-high ninth of the campaign, putting him at 34 points through 25 contests. The defenseman has added 73 shots on net, 19 blocked shots and a plus-18 rating. Even if his goal-scoring pace drops, his presence in a strong offense with an elite power play should keep him on track for a career year in nearly every category.
