There are six NHL games on the slate tonight, which is great for ice hockey betting.

NHL betting lines typically get the most action, but there are also some good props to take a look at.

Below are two NHL betting props, which involve games between the Rangers and Red Wings, and the Coyotes and Sharks.

Chris Kreider Any Time Scorer (-115)

New York’s Chris Kreider is in the midst of a season that has put him in the running for the Rocket Richard Trophy.

It’s unlikely he has many cracks at the award for the rest of his career.

This season is the first time the 30-year-old has topped 30 goals in a season. Currently, he has 45 goals through 67 games and doesn’t look to be losing steam down the stretch. In his past five games, Kreider has scored five goals with seven goals over his past eight.

On Wednesday, the New York Rangers play a Detroit Red Wings team that allows the most goals per game in the NHL at 3.80. Meanwhile, Kreider is fifth amongst skaters in goals per game with 0.67.

Kreider is a threat to score every night, but he is especially likely against the worst defensive team in the league.

Timo Meier Over 0.5 Points (-190)

Timo Meier has 65 points in 60 games this season. He’s one of only 50 NHL players to be over a point per game, sitting at 29th with 1.08.

Over his past four games, Meier has produced five goals and two assists. The former top-10 pick in 2015 has always had this potential and is finally having his breakout campaign. The 25-year-old will easily eclipse his career-best 66 points in a season this year.

The San Jose Sharks are playing the Arizona Coyotes, who are 29th in goals against per game with 3.58. In the two games that Meier has played against Arizona this season, he has two goals and one assist.

Meier is an excellent candidate to put up a point tonight.
