What a day, what a night. The NHL season is finally upon us and Fantasy Hockey is set to kick off tonight. There are only 3 games on the schedule, but I’ve got my Draft Street Fantasy Hockey Bargain Picks ready to go. Being able to slide in a cheaper option will help you load up the rest of your roster, so here are a few under-priced players to help maximize your roster’s potential. Scheifele, Winnipeg Jets – $7,407: Finally, the 2011 first rounder has cracked the Jets for good, well, at least for now. More importantly though, he is centering Evander Kane and Devin Setoguchi on the Jets’ 2nd line. If he can bring his offensive mastery with him from the OHL, good things are ahead for Scheifele. LW Marcus Johansson, Washington Capitals – $8,089: Lining up with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin will help the 22 year old. But make no mistakes, Johansson brings a lot to the table himself. He should have been considered a major sleeper and late round target in all drafts and has an ideal situation to reward owners beginning tonight. RW Nikolai Kulemin, Toronto Maple Leafs – $5,870: Kulemin might never crack 30 goals again, but he’ll get a shot to play top 6 minutes to start the season. He has an excellent opportunity skating with Nazem Kadri and Joffrey Lupul on the Leafs 2nd line and he likes to put the puck on net. You could do worse and at a steeper price. D Jeff Petry, Edmonton Oilers – $5,255: The Oilers’ defense underwent an overhaul this summer, but Petry stands to benefit as much as anyone. He’ll see an uptick in Power Play time with Ryan Whitney gone and that should bump up his points and shots on goal. Petry has some upside and will be largely overlooked to start the season. D Tobias Enstrom, Winnipeg Jets – $5,018: Enstrom is an undersized offensive defensemen, who usually posts points in bunches. He has developed into one of the most reliable point producers from the back end when healthy, so his price tag is relatively low given his upside. He’ll log big minutes and see plenty of Power Play time.   Good luck, enjoy and hopefully these Draft Street Fantasy Hockey Bargain Picks help!
