Canes' Skinner Collects Two Assists In Loss

News: Jeff Skinner collected a pair of assists in Saturday's loss to Colorado.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner has been hot lately, recording two goals and five points in his last three games. Despite the recent production, it's worth noting Skinner skated on the third line Saturday, logging a season-low 12:57 of ice time. He's still playing on the top power-play unit, however, so his production isn't likely to slow down anytime soon. The 22-year-old is having a productive season thus far, collecting five goals and 11 points in 16 games.

Hurricanes' Skinner Notches Two Points

News: Jeff Skinner scored a goal and assisted on Eric Staal's power-play tally in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Things have been slow for Jeff Skinner to start the year, but his proclivity for putting pucks on net and low shooting percentage point to some ill luck. He's got goals in consecutive games now, though, and his fantasy owners will be hoping for him to build on that. Thursday's helper was his first power-play point of the season.

Canes' Skinner Grabs Two Points

News: Jeff Skinner notched a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-1 win over the Flames.
Analysis: Monday extended Jeff Skinner's streak to three straight games with a point, bringing him to three each in goals and assists. The goal was the 100th of his career, and he seems poised to reach the 30 goal and 50 point mark.

Canes Demote Skinner To Fourth Line

News: Jeff Skinner will be moved to the fourth line for Tuesday's game against Columbus, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: With Alexander Semin returning to the top line after sitting out as a healthy scratch, coach Bill Peters reportedly did not want to disrupt the chemistry of his second and third lines, so the only spot left for Jeff Skinner was on the fourth line with Jay McClement and Patrick Dwyer. Obviously, the move does nothing for Skinner's fantasy value, however he's far too talented for this to be a permanent demotion. We suggest putting Skinner on your fantasy bench until he gets promoted back to a scoring line.

Hurricanes' Skinner Finds Net For First Point

News: Jeff Skinner tallied his first point of the season on a second-period goal Friday against the Oilers.
Analysis: Sidelined for four games earlier in the season with a concussion, Jeff Skinner had struggled to a minus-4 rating over his first two games back before righting the ship Friday. The collective stink of the Hurricanes, the league's only winless team, could ravage his plus/minus rating, but Skinner should be on track for another 50-point campaign if health permits.

Canes' Skinner (Concussion) To Return Tuesday

News: Jeff Skinner (concussion) will make his regular season debut Tuesday at Winnipeg, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. "He looks hungry and ready to go," according to head coach Bill Peters.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner missed the Canes' first four games of the season after suffering the injury during the preseason, but has reportedly looked sharp in practices lately. He will try to provide a boost to a struggling Carolina squad that is still looking for its first win of the season (0-2-2).

Carolina Activates Skinner From IR

News: Jeff Skinner (concussion) was activated from injured reserve Friday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Although Jeff Skinner was unable to return to action Thursday as the Hurricanes had hoped, it appears that with a few practices over the weekend, he'll make his season debut in the team's next game on Oct. 21 versus Winnipeg. Skinner skated on the second line with Victor Rask and Elias Lindholm at Friday's practice, and it appears he'll stick there once the Hurricanes resume play. His return should be a welcome development for a scoring-starved Hurricanes squad that had already been playing without both Staal brothers.

Hurricanes' Skinner Ruled Out Thursday

News: Jeff Skinner (concussion) has been ruled out of Thursday's contest versus the Rangers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner joined the Hurricanes in New York and was on the ice for morning skate, but with only one full-contact practice on his ledger since sustaining the concussion, coach Bill Peters understandably wasn't comfortable using him Thursday. The Hurricanes will receive a much-needed five-day break in the schedule after Thursday's tilt, which should allow Skinner to pick up enough practice time before the team plays its next game Tuesday against Winnipeg.

Carolina's Skinner (Concussion) Takes Contact

News: Jeff Skinner (concussion) didn't wear a no-contact jersey at Wednesday's practice.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner will travel with the Hurricanes to New York in advance of Thursday's game with the Rangers, with a decision on his status for the contest to come down following morning skate. With three of the Hurricanes' other top players in Eric Staal, Jordan Staal and Andrej Sekera seemingly unlikely to play Thursday, Skinner's potential return would represent a welcome development.

Canes' Skinner Could Play Thursday

News: Jeff Skinner (concussion) could return to the lineup Thursday against the Rangers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner will skate in Tuesday's morning skate, but won't be in the lineup against the Sabres. He could return Thursday, though, to make his season debut, and provide an offensive threat for the injury riddled Canes.

Hurricanes Place Concussed Skinner On IR

News: Jeff Skinner (concussion) was placed on injured reserve by the Hurricanes on Sunday, Arpon Basu of LNH.com reports.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner suffered the concussion in an Oct. 5 preseason game and missed the team's first two games as a result. His placement on injured reserve likely means he will be out longer, though concussions don't typically have a timetable.

Canes' Skinner Has Concussion

News: Jeff Skinner has been diagnosed with a concussion, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner suffered the injury during the Hurricanes final preseason game, and will likely miss the season opener Friday because of it, and possibly beyond. Because Skinner has already suffered multiple concussions over his young career, there's legitimate concern he may not receive clearance right away. At any rate, he'll be subjected to the NHL's concussion protocol, with the Hurricanes holding out hope that the head injury Skinner sustained was a mild one. The 22-year-old racked up 33 goals and 21 assists in 71 games last season, and should be one of Carolina's leading scorers again when healthy.

Canes' Skinner (Upper Body) To Be Evaluated Monday

News: Jeff Skinner (upper body) will be reevaluated Monday after he was forced out of Sunday's preseason game.
Analysis: Coach Bill Peters relayed after Sunday's game that Jeff Skinner feels fine, but a definite update on his status will be given Monday after he's examined further. His past history of concussions is alarming so it'll be important to see how he feels Monday to determine his status moving forward.

Canes' Skinner Leaves Early With Upper Body Injury

News: Jeff Skinner left Sunday's preseason game early with an upper body injury and did not return, Chip Alexander of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner has had a history of concussions last season that caused him to miss a significant amount of time. The team hasn't indicated that is the case but another report seemed to hint that it is a possibility. The injury may leave his status in doubt for the Hurricanes' regular season opener Oct. 10.

Canes' Skinner Seeing Prime Minutes In Preseason

News: Jeff Skinner saw 17:14 worth of ice time in Monday's 3-1 preseason loss to the Blues, skating primarily on a line with Elias Lindholm and Riley Nash.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner, who has battled concussions on numerous occasions in the past, played close to a full season last year and comes into this season fully healthy. He will be a top-six player for the Canes this year and will look to improve on last season's 54-point effort - his highest total since his rookie season (63 points in 2010-11). He makes for a fine mid- to late-round selection in most standard fantasy formats.

Carolina's Skinner Nabs Two Goals In Finale

News: Jeff Skinner scored two goals in Sunday's season-ending victory over the Flyers.
Analysis: The two tallies allowed Jeff Skinner to pile on to his career-best total of 33 goals. In so doing, he snapped a three-game skid without a point and heads into the upcoming season as a foundational member of Carolina's forward corps.

Canes' Skinner Matches Career Goal Mark

News: Jeff Skinner's goal Saturday was his 31st of the season. He has at least one point in seven of his last eight games.
Analysis: He has eight points, including five goals, in those last eight outings. The goal Saturday matched his career mark, so there's a chance he can best that before season's end.

Canes' Skinner On Six-Game Streak

News: Jeff Skinner dished out two assists Tuesday in Pittsburgh, pushing his point streak to six games. He also went plus-2 with two PIM.
Analysis: With the stat-sheet-filling night, Jeff Skinner's now cleared 50 points for the second time in four seasons. And at age 21, he hasn't reached his ceiling yet.

Hurricanes' Skinner Lights The Lamp

News: Jeff Skinner notched his 30th goal of the season against the Senators on Monday.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner has now scored a goal in four straight games. He also has 30 goals despite only playing in 64 games so far, and he's likely to set a career high. The only issue facing the 21-year-old Skinner is his issue with staying healthy.

Carolina's Skinner: Points In Three Straight

News: Jeff Skinner tallied a goal in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner has been looking for his own offense even more than usual of late, attempting 15 shots over his last three games. He's yielded a point in each of those contests, boosting his scoring totals to a respectable 28 goals and 19 assists over 62 games this season.

Skinner Active In Canes' Win

News: Jeff Skinner scored in Thursday's 4-2 win over Carolina, giving him three goals and an assist in the last four games.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner took 13 of Carolina's 55 shots on goal in the win, and he's been rather active of late as the 'Canes attempt to stay relevant in the playoff race. Skinner has seen some barren stretches this season, but when he gets on the scoreboard, it tends to be in binges.

Skinner Scores 24th Goal During Friday's Loss

News: Jeff Skinner scored his 24th goal of the season during Friday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner gave the Canes the lead again shortly after the Rangers tied the game in the third period on an unassisted play. New York quickly came back and the Canes were unable to repel a late-game comeback by the Blueshirts. Skinner now has 24 goals and 17 assists over 53 games this season.

Canes' Skinner Enduring Scoring Slump

News: Jeff Skinner went pointless in Tuesday's 3-2 OT win over the Sharks, marking the sixth consecutive game he's failed to hit the scoresheet.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner continues to play heavy minutes on the Canes' top line alongside Eric Staal and rookie Elias Lindholm, but he's been maddeningly inconsistent of late. He's too good to stay this quiet for much longer, but feel free to go with a more reliable scoring option if you have one.

Skinner Active In Carolina Win

News: Jeff Skinner assisted on two of Carolina's five goals in Friday's win over Florida, giving him three points in the last three games.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner is still hovering around a point-per-game pace on the season with 40 through 45 contests. He's missed some time due to injury, but the youngster is one of Carolina's most important offensive players and will be a factor in the team's playoff race. Those in leagues that reward shots on goal will want to get their hands on Skinner via trade if they can, as he is averaging close to 3.8 shots per game,.

Carolina's Skinner Ends Small Drought

News: Jeff Skinner scored his first goal in four games Friday, tallying the game-winner in a win over St. Louis.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner had just two points in the last five games and will look to get back near the point-per-game pace he'd established earlier this season. He's an utterly skilled player, albeit one who is susceptible to injury. He's one of Carolina's top scorers and can be an asset when producing,
