Andrew CoppDET (vs FLA) – Copp has five points, including four assists, in his last four games and shot seven shots, in addition to maintaining a plus-3 differential. He completes a successful trio with Adam Erne and Oskar Sundqvist, and the latter has registered three goals and four assists in four outings. Copp is also used on the second wave of the power play, which coach Derek Lalonde uses quite often during games. Since the start of the season, Copp has spent more than two minutes on the ice per game with the advantage of a man (2:03).

Cole PerfettiWPG (vs STL) – Perfetti has been employed for six games with Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele, and the results are there. In fact, things have been going well for the Jets small forward for eight games. He has eight points, including seven assists, with a plus-5 differential and 18 shots. The Blues have allowed four or more goals in their last eight outings, so betting on a Jets forward in your pool on Thursday isn’t a bad idea.


Rasmus SandinTOR (vs. LAK) – Sandin has three points (two goals, one assist) in his last four games and has fired at least two shots in three games during this streak. Sandin is the second-highest point defenseman among Toronto defensemen (nine in 27 games), behind Morgan Rielly (16 for 20), whom he replaced on the first wave of the power play. Rielly’s name has been added to the Maple Leafs’ long-term injured list with a knee injury. The Los Angeles Kings are tied for ninth in the NHL for most goals against on average per game (3.54), so Sandin could get you big on Thursday.

Jake OettingerDAL (vs OTT) – Oettinger isn’t as dominant as he was at the start of the season, going 2-1-2 with a 3.17 goals-against-average and .893 save percentage in his last six starts, but he faces the Ottawa Senators on Thursday, who aren’t delivering the goods this season and suffered a 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday. Oettinger will play at home, where he is doing well with a 6-2-2 record, 2.63 GAA, .906 save percentage and two shutouts. The Senators are the fifth-worst team in the NHL on opposing rinks with a 4-6-1 record.
