Best player props for Saturday's NHL slate: Fox is coming off of a three-assist night
There are 12 games tonight, we’re going to take a deeper dive into two of the matchups and choose two player props we think will provide good value and will have a great chance of hitting. Games are starting at 12:30 pm ET and the final game of the night starts at 10:30 pm ET.
Adam Fox over 0.5 points (-133)
Adam Fox is coming off of a three-assist game and will be looking to carry that momentum into tonight’s contest. While the raining Norris Trophy winner won’t be recognized as the best defenseman of this season, Fox is still putting up a very respectable follow-up campaign to his breakout season last year. Fox currently has 72 points in 75 games — especially impressive for a defenseman. Bettors are getting incredible value for Fox to produce a point on Saturday. He has recorded a point in three consecutive games and has totaled two assists in two games against the Boston Bruins this season. With playoffs just around the corner, the New York Rangers’ offense has started to heat up averaging 3.3 goals over their last 10 games. If the Rangers expect to win their fifth game in a row, Fox will be a contributing factor.

Matthew Tkachuk over 0.5 goals (+135)
Matthew Tkachuk is having one of the quietest 100-point seasons of recent memory. With 100 points in 78 games, Tkachuk has become the seventh player this season to reach the 100 mark and he has shown no signs of slowing down. He is on a four-game point streak and has recorded eight goals in his last nine. With Tkachuk playing on the top line alongside Johnny Gaudreau, the Calgary Flames boast one of the most dangerous duos in hockey; more often than not they are dominating games. Tonight the Flames will take on the Vancouver Canucks, a Pacific Division rival. The last time these teams met Tkachuk recorded a goal and two assists. The Flames have also won eight of their last 10 games and are averaging 4.2 goals during this stretch. Take Tkachuk to find the back of the net.
