McClure’s top NHL DFS picks for Monday

For Monday’s slate, one of McClure’s top NHL DFS picks is Oilers center Leon Draisaitl at $8,100 on DraftKings and $7,900 on FanDuel. The 25-year-old German has tallied 10 goals and 36 points in 26 games this season. That includes two assists and a plus-3 standing in games last Wednesday against the Maple Leafs and Saturday against the Flames.

Draisaitl has been an excellent playmaker again this season coming off the form that won him the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player. Draisaitl became the first German player to win the Hart Trophy as MVP after leading the league in scoring with 110 points in 71 games. He also won the Ted Lindsay Award for most outstanding player as voted by peers. The Oilers get Ottawa on Monday, a team Draisaitl has scored twice and tallied seven assists against in four games so far this season.

Part of McClure’s optimal NHL DFS strategy for March 6 includes stacking Draisaitl with center Connor McDavid at $9,200 on DraftKings and $8,700 on FanDuel. McDavid leads the league with 43 points in 26 games so far. That includes a goal and three points against the Flames on Saturday.

McDavid joined an elite group earlier this season, notching his 500th NHL point in just 369 total games — the 21st player in NHL history to accomplish the feat before his 25th birthday. McDavid has been effective against the Senators in four games this season, notching a goal and seven assists. That level of production gives McClure all the examples he needs to recommend the 24-year-old superstar Monday in all NHL DFS formats.
