It’s been a strong week for us with our NHL prop picks going 6-2 across both articles this week. Check out our selections for today’s card and let’s see can we profit for a third time in a row.
Seattle Kraken vs. Minnesota Wild
Friday, April 22, 2022 – 08:00 PM EDT at Xcel Energy Center
Mats Zuccarello (Minnesota Wild)
Our first NHL pick on today’s card is Minnesota’s top assist scorer Mats Zuccarello to keep on producing tonight as we are laying some juice to take him to get an assist on the board tonight.
Zuccarello has picked up 55 assists in 69 games this season, the most on this Wild team and the 16th most in the NHL so far this season. We expect the Wild will want to win here as they are still in a battle for 2nd with the St. Louis Blues in their division and the Calgary Flames for 2nd in the Western Conference.

Zuccarello has picked up 5 assists in his previous 4 games and has yet to register an assist against the Kraken this season, let’s hope he can change that tonight.

Jared McCann (Seattle Kraken)
Seattle has been in some solid form lately, winning their previous 3 games and having the 10th best record in their conference across the previous 10 games. Things are slowly improving for the league's newest team and Jared McCann has been their top goalscorer this season racking up 26 goals.
It’s the 2nd best home team in the Conference facing the worst road team in the conference. If this was bang in the middle of the regular season, we most likely would side with two Wild players here but given there are not many games left and teams are likely to take their eye off the ball, etc., we are more than happy to have a ½ punt on McCann to find the back of the net tonight.
Minnesota will most likely win here but the Kraken could score a few given they have scored 11 goals across their previous 3 games, including a win over the Avalanche which will fill them with some confidence. Seattle has scored 6 goals in two games against Minnesota so far this season.

Colorado Avalanche vs. Edmonton Oilers
Friday, April 22, 2022 - 09:00 PM EDT at Rogers Place
Nazem Kadri (Colorado Avalanche)
Two playoff teams come head-to-head here in Edmonton tonight and we are expecting some goals in this one. The Avalanche clearly have one eye on the playoffs as they suffered back-to-back 3-2 defeats but are comfortably top of the Western Conference and Central Division.
Nazem Kadri at +100 to pick up an assist against the Oilers is a nice set of NHL odds considering he has 58 assists, the most on this Colorado team and the 11th most in the entire NHL.
Kadri has been hot lately, scoring an assist in 6 of his previous 8 games, and in that same stretch of games, he has scored 8 assists.
NHL Prop Pick: Kadri Over 0.5 Assist (+100) at BetOnline
Leon Draisaitl (Edmonton Oilers)
It’s never a bad thing to be taking the league’s 2nd top goalscorer to get on the board at +120, and we are only even getting these odds because of the Avalanche being the best team in the NHL, we have often seen his anytime goalscorer line set at +100.
Draisaitl has been a little cold lately, having scored 8 goals in 10 games he has since only scored in two of his last six, but did manage a hat-trick against the Golden Knights.

Scoring between these two teams across their first two games has seen both games end in a tie and go to overtime with the Avalanche winning on both occasions.
This is a very hard one to call tonight, just because the Avalanche might not be fully tuned in, we will side with a 4-3 Oilers win, but wouldn’t at all be surprised if Colorado won. This is definitely a game we wouldn’t like to be betting on teams, but happy enough to bet some plus money on player props.
