NHL Player Prop Bets Today: Oct. 17

Best Oilers vs Predators Player Prop Bets 

Evander Kane

The Edmonton Oilers opened their season by running straight into an unexpected roadblock in the Vancouver Canucks. Vancouver contained the high-powered Oilers offense, limiting it to four goals in two games. Oilers winger Evander Kane, who had a down season last year with only 16 goals, is again off to a slow start in 2023-24. In Edmonton’s two losses to the Canucks, Kane had a total of only four shots on goal and did not convert any of them. While the Canucks are a good defensive team, look for the Oilers to bounce back on Tuesday against a gritty Nashville Predators team that always poses a tough defensive test with Juuse Saros in goal. Since goals will come at a premium in this one, expect the Oilers to deliberately take more shots and find the back of the net as a result.

The Pick: Evander Kane over 3.5 shots on goal (+125)

Best Avalanche vs Kraken Player Prop Bets Nathan MacKinnon

In any discussion of the Colorado Avalanche, the first player mentioned is almost always center Nathan MacKinnon. MacKinnon led the Avs in points and was the team’s second-leading goal scorer last season. Needless to say, he will be the ring leader again in 2023-24. The Avalanche offense flows through him, and in his most recent game -- against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday -- MacKinnon had 14 shots on goal. Colorado now draws a Seattle Kraken team that made the playoffs last season but is in turmoil to start this one. Look for MacKinnon to have a huge night against this Kraken defense on Tuesday.

The Pick: Nathan MacKinnon over 4.5 shots on goal (-150)
Best Hurricanes vs Sharks Player Prop Bets 

Teuvo Teravainen

Most people would consider center Sebastian Aho to be the superstar forward on the Carolina Hurricanes. While Aho is still the major attraction, the emergence of winger Teuvo Teravainen has been especially noteworthy for Carolina. Through his first three games, Teravainen has four goals. That’s one-third of what he had in the entire 2022-23 season, when he scored 12 goals in 68 games. While Teravainen’s goals won’t continue to come as frequently, I expect him to remain aggressive. He had three shots on goal in his most recent game at Anaheim, and I can see him getting at least two shots on Tuesday night at San Jose, since the Hurricanes will continue to ride their hot hand.

The Pick: Teuvo Teravainen over 1.5 shots on goal (-167)

Best Stars vs Golden Knights Player Prop Bets 

Jack Eichel

The Vegas Golden Knights’ dominant start to the 2023-24 NHL season has put the league on notice that there is no championship fatigue for this team. Indeed, the Golden Knights look like they have something to prove by repeating as Stanley Cup winners next spring. Vegas’ success hinges on center Jack Eichel, who has been attacking the net so far this season with 15 shots through three games. Only two of those shots got past the goalie, but Eichel is remaining aggressive as he looks to lead this Golden Knights team to greater heights. In Eichel’s most recent game against the Dallas Stars -– the final game of the 2023 Western Conference Finals -- he had three shots on goal in a 6-0 victory. I expect the Vegas-Dallas rematch to be much closer on Tuesday night, which means Eichel will be attacking the net for all three periods.

The Pick: Jack Eichel over 3.5 shots on goal (+110)
