Detroit Red Wings DFS SPIN
James Reimer will be in goal for Thursday’s NHL Global Series game versus the Senators, Max Bultman of The Athletic reports.
With Ville Husso (personal) not on the trip due to the birth of his child, Reimer will get the nod in the Red Wings’ first game overseas. Head coach Derek Lalonde did not rule out Reimer playing both contests — the Red Wings also face the Maple Leafs on Friday, but Alex Lyon could get that start. Reimer has allowed seven goals on 81 shots over his last three games, but he’s gone 0-2-1 in that span.
Ottawa Senators DFS SPIN
Tim Stutzle had two assists in a 4-1 win over the Flames on Saturday. The first was a secondary assist on Mathieu Joseph’s first-period snipe, and the second was a primary helper on Travis Hamonic’s slapper to finish the scoring in the third. Either way, they all count the same. Stutzle leads the Sens with 17 points in 13 games. He is also tied for fourth overall in the NHL with 14 apples. Stutzle is in a seven-way tie for 14th in league scoring, and he’s on track to best his 90-point effort from last season.
