3 Daily Fantasy Hockey Stacks for 1/6/17

John Tavares and the Islanders' top line is heating up and should be considered for your DFS lineups tonight.

In daily fantasy hockey, stacking is a great way to pile up points and shoot up the leaderboards in tournaments. Each goal can be assisted by up to two other players, so knowing a player's line mates and pairing them together in the same lineup is a great way to rack up points when a team scores.

Even though this is a medium-sized slate, there are tons of potential options and some great matchups on paper. In this piece, we'll leave out some of the obvious plays like Auston Matthews and Patrick Kane. Instead, we'll look at some of the best stacks that may go overlooked that are in good spots and capable of scoring 2-3 goals.
