The 2021-22 NHL season is in full swing, and with it comes renewed opportunity to construct profitable DFS lineups on a nightly basis. Daily fantasy hockey offers shorter-term gratification and requires less of managers when compared to season-long fantasy hockey. Every night is another chance to assemble a lineup with point-scoring upside at a manageable price tag. Considering the streaky nature of individual player performance in hockey, when equipped with proper insight, you can come away with a decent profit without having to stress over including or excluding certain stars.

Our hockey season tools are overflowing with exclusive content aimed at providing the knowledge you need to make winning lineup and roster decisions for a range of different fantasy hockey formats — from our DFS insights to projections, rankings and tiers to exclusive expert columns, League Sync, our Start/Sit Tool and much more — we're confident our wide range of tools can help you outsmart the competition when it comes to winning at fantasy hockey.

Today, we're spotlighting our hockey DFS Tools, specifically our lineup Optimizer for tonight's slate of NHL action. With four games set to drop the puck, there's plenty of actionable value on the board among moderately-priced players who offer prime scoring and goaltending upside. The Optimizer is a fully-customizable feature where you can filter lineup recommendations by format and schedule. See which players our Optimizer's algorithm is targeting for DFS rosters on Monday night:
