Sometimes patience rewards even the most degen of degen’s. We got off the schneid on Thursday night and had a 1.5x Insured play hit after going two for three. Call it the law of averages. Or, maybe it was my fiancé being the good luck charm? Either way, let’s use that momentum and build a beautiful three-legged banger on Friday night!
The NHL boasts a modest three-game slate tonight, and there are premium spots to take advantage of. Just call us Clark Griswold because we just don’t know when to quit. Quit hitting bangers, that is! Here are my three best NHL Underdog Fantasy Picks for February 9.

The Quick Pick: Daily NHL Underdog Fantasy Pick’em Picks for February 9
Brock Faber Higher Than 0.5 Points
The Minnesota Wild’s playoff hopes ain’t dead yet, but they are certainly on life support. If they’re going to sneak in, two points will be needed on Friday night against the Penguins. We’re going to key in on the 21-year-old Minnesota kid, Brock Faber, to snag us a point.
He has been stellar of late, with points in seven of his last eight games. Also, flip back a couple of months on the calendar and peep the point he logged in Pittsburgh. Let’s catch some Faber Fire with this first NHL Underdog entry and press Higher Than 0.5 Points against the Penguins.
Frank Vatrano Higher Than 0.5 Points
Unlike the Wild, the Anaheim Ducks playoffs chances are as dead as disco. The tests don’t get any easier on Friday night with the Edmonton Oilers skating into town. But our old pal Frank Vatrano is still worthy of consideration as an NHL Underdog entry. Prior to the All-Star Break, Vatrano logged points in three of four games.
And, back on December 31, he scored a goal and logged four shots against these same Oilers. So, let’s trust the Massachusetts man to do what must be done to cash a banger. Go ahead and mash the Higher Than 0.5 Points on Frank Vatrano against Edmonton!
Evander Kane Higher Than 0.5 Points
Let’s keep things right in the nightcap on Friday night and focus on veteran winger Evander Kane. He has put together a very solid 15-goal and 14-assist season to date. While he has gone a bit cold of late, Kane has proven he shows up against the Ducks. In two previous meetings this year, he has tallied two goals, one assist, and seven shots on goal.
With the numbers in our favor, it only feels right to anchor Friday night’s banger with a fellow degen. Grab Evander Kane Higher Than 0.5 Points, and let’s ride this banger off into the sunset.
