Daniel Sedin LW (Vancouver) - $6,700

 

Sedin ended a five-game goalless skid on Thursday, but the goal-starved Canucks have another meeting with St. Louis set for Friday night. The Blues blanked Vancouver last Saturday and Brian Elliott, who will face them again, was called upon to make just 19 saves. Daniel has registered two goals and two assists in 10 games on zero days of rest this season. The left wing slot isn't very deep on this slate, but Sedin isn't a strong pick right now.

 

Henrik Sedin C (Vancouver) - $5,100

 

Henrik is significantly cheaper than his brother Daniel, but if you are avoiding one than you should probably avoid the other. He makes that decision a little easier because he has been quiet offensively this month with one goal and three assists in 10 outings. Sedin also has one goal and one assist to go with a minus-5 rating in the past six games.

 

Tyler Johnson C (Tampa Bay) - $6,400

 

Johnson had two assists against Detroit on Tuesday, but he has recored only three helpers in the past seven games and he hasn't found the back of the net in the last eight. It's been a frustrating season for Johnson, who has 12 goals and 35 points in 60 matches.

 

Alex Pietrangelo D (St. Louis) - $6,000

 

Pietrangelo is the most expensive defender on Friday night despite having 29 points in 65 games this campaign. He also has one goal and three helpers in nine games this month. Pietrangelo hasn't earned a point in two previous games against Vancouver this season and he has accounted for just eight assists in 31 games at home in 2015-16.

 

Ben Bishop G (Tampa Bay) - $9,800

 

Bishop is the priciest goaltender on Friday. He owns a 4-3-1 record against the Islanders in his career to go with a 2.57 goals-against average and a .904 save percentage. Bishop and the Lightning dropped a 3-2 decision to New York back on Nov. 28.
