This page tracks starting goalies for today, tonight and tomorrow as they are announced in real-time.
The goalie is the most important position in Daily Fantasy Hockey. Goalies are usually going to be the most expensive AND highest scoring position that you will roster. A goalie who manages to land a shutout is going to massively juice your chances of cashing, while a bad night can translate to negative fantasy points and game over for your lineup.
Occasionally teams will confirm their goalies the night before, but most of the time the announcements will trickle in throughout the day. Check back often to see the latest on who's starting tonight and tomorrow.
Most nights it will often be the usual starter that is playing, but there will be times that a back up plays due to injury, to shake up losing streaks, or to rest the primary goalie so they avoid playing back-to-back nights. Most teams will play their starter 50-55 games per season, with backups starting in net 20 - 25 times on average.
There are 3 key things to consider when deciding on a starting goalie:
When trying to find value, look for goalies priced $1000 or $2000 below the top goalie of the night, that are listed with a solid 60%+ chance of winning. Extra factors that add to your decision are if the other team's goalie is playing back to back, or if there is a key player injured on the other team. Both will work in your favor.
