Kapanen has been good when he's played, putting up seven goals, 21 points, and a +12 plus/minus in 30 games this season. Check closer to puck drop but the 24-year-old could be a sneaky play for $4300 at FanDuel.

Pittsburgh is just a point back of the New York Islanders and Washington Capitals for the East's lead and will play their second of three straight against New Jersey tonight.
