All in all….it has been a lot of fun working as a partner with DraftKings. Overall, we have won more than we lost. That being said, there are just nine days left before the fantasy season ends. Please remember that there will likely be no daily fantasy hockey on April 28th which will be when the Boston game from Monday was rescheduled for.
What is that going to mean for you? Basically, the season cranks out a last week that is going to be like nothing you have ever seen. Let’s do something a bit different. Do you want to take a peak at the schedule? Sure, we all do!
DraftKings Schedule Peak
Here is a look at the amount of games from Friday until next Thursday first.
- Friday — 6 games
- Saturday — 8 games
- Sunday — 8 games
- Monday — 5 games
- Tuesday — 9 games
- Wednesday — 4 games
- Thursday — 11 games
It is rare to see an eight plus back to back scenario on the weekend but that may mean good things for the daily fantasy hockey community. Sunday may be the more advantageous day even. Here is something we will call going a bit up in level.

Wow! Now what is the skinny? First off, thanks to ESPN for the schedule grid. Now, let’s answer our version of a daily fantasy skinny. It is just our idea of players who would be projected for high fantasy totals and players to keep an eye on as well. This does not mean that these players will ever produce at that level. The key with this is just to help the daily player find the high money guys also. This will evolve into our last column for next Friday so stay tuned!
Cheaper than something off the value meal? Yes!
Also, DraftKings gives you much better chances at winning some cash. If you have just one dollar, you can get in on the NHL Daily Dollar contest. The guaranteed payout is usually $75 and first place could net you as much as $12.50. For a small investment, that is a pretty nice return for just one lousy dollar. It is as easy as signing up for an account, pony up some money (there is a surprise for that too), set your roster, and just let it ride. It’s that easy! The payout structure is simple enough. Those entries fill in fast especially on the weekends when you can see near triple digit entrant numbers. Get off the bench and into a contest today! Personally it is a very easy way to make a little quick cash to set up for the bigger contests whether they may be on the weekend or during the week.
Multiply The Fun By TWO?
Do you want to double your money? Yes, we all do! DraftKings gives you that chance right when you first sign up. With the ability to double your first time deposit, they give you a competitive edge most daily fantasy sites just cannot compete with. If you deposit $10, they give you $20. Would you like to put $100 into that new account? That turns into $200! That is easy money. All a person has to do is go register right now. It takes all of a few minutes and you are ready to make it rain down some cash. If you are ready and you want to play on an easy to use platform, then DraftKings is for you. The only question is what the heck are you waiting for?
