Jeff Skinner

Canes' Skinner: Two Points In Last 10 Games

News: Jeff Skinner picked up an assist Saturday in a win over the Devils. It was just his second point in his last 10 games.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner has just 32 points in 69 games this season and has never come close to his brilliant 63-point rookie season. Is he a potential 30-goal scorer or just a marginal fantasy play? Right now -- and sadly -- it's the latter.

Jeff Skinner, LW, CAR Canes' Skinner Pots Two In Win

Jeff Skinner

Canes' Skinner Pots Two In Win

News: Jeff Skinner potted a pair of power-play goals in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Oilers.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner has been hot recently, tallying 10 points (eight goals) in his last 12 games. Despite that stretch, the 22-year-old has just 29 points in 59 contests on the year, so reaching the 50-point mark for the third time seems unlikely. The winger has been turning a corner though, so he's worth rolling while he keeps it up.

Cane's Skinner Scores For Third Straight Game

News: Jeff Skinner scored for the third straight game and had five shots on goal in Friday's win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner has scored six goals in his last eight games and has recorded a whopping 33 shots on goal in that span. This recent streak comes right after a stretch where the 22-year-old went 10 straight games without a point. Talk about inconsistency. Skinner is skating on the second line and playing with Eric Staal and Justin Faulk on the power play, so he's worth riding while he's hot.

Canes' Skinner: Four Goals In Last Six Games

News: Jeff Skinner scored the Hurricanes' only goal in a 3-1 loss to the Devils on Saturday night. He has four goals, including two with the man advantage, in his last six games.
Analysis: His value depends on your needs. His plus-minus is horrendous (minus-17) and his power-production is abysmal (four points in 54 games). And he only has 14 goals and nine assists in 53 games. It's hard to believe he's only 22 -- it seems like he's been around for a while. But he's never come close to his offensive output from his rookie season. Use with caution, even with the recent sniping. Remember -- he only had 19 points in 47 games prior to that.

Jeff Skinner, LW, CAR Canes' Skinner Sinks Goal On Man Advantage

Jeff Skinner

Canes' Skinner Sinks Goal On Man Advantage

News: Jeff Skinner scored on the man advantage Monday, helping the Hurricanes to a 6-3 win over the Senators.
Analysis: Fantasy owners were rapidly losing trust in Jeff Skinner, as he recently went on a 10-game skid without a single point. But the former Calder Trophy winner is back on track offensively with a goal in three straight games. Skinner is immensely talented but inconsistencies and a minus-16 rating on the year keep him from being an automatic roll in daily formats.

Jeff Skinner, LW, CAR Skinner Scores in Canes' Loss To Ducks

Jeff Skinner

Skinner Scores in Canes' Loss To Ducks

News: Jeff Skinner recorded a power-play goal - his first of the season - in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Ducks. It was the first time he'd hit the scoresheet in over a month, with his last point coming Jan. 10 against the Blues - a span of 11 games.
Analysis: No two ways about it, it's been a miserable season for Jeff Skinner, and for those fantasy leaguers who own him. With just 20 points in 48 games, he is not likely to match the 54 points he posted in 71 games last season, and the high-water mark of 63 points he recorded in his rookie season four years ago is a distant memory. At this point, perhaps the only thing that can revive Skinner's slumping career is a change of scenery. In the meantime, feel free to look for viable fantasy alternatives elsewhere on your waiver wire.

Canes' Skinner Struggling Through Scoring Slump

News: Jeff Skinner failed to hit the scoresheet for the seventh consecutive game Saturday against the Rangers.
Analysis: With just 19 points in 44 games, Jeff Skinner is on pace for a 33-point season, his worst per-game offensive total of his career and a far cry from the 63 points he posted in 2010-11. It's hard to believe how far Skinner has regressed since winning the Calder trophy as top rookie that season, however his numbers speak for themselves. Feel free to stash him on your fantasy bench until he starts to show signs of breaking out of his scoring slump.

Canes' Skinner Returns To Game

News: Jeff Skinner was able to return to Friday's game against the Canucks after being tested for a concussion in the Hurricanes' locker room, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief, as it appears as though Jeff Skinner has avoided a concussion. Skinner has tallied 19 points through 28 games with the Canes this season.

Canes' Skinner Heads To Locker Room

News: Jeff Skinner headed to the locker room in the second period of Friday's game against the Canucks to be tested for a concussion, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner headed to the locker room after taking a big hit into the boards in the second period. It's unclear if the he'll be able to return to Friday's contest at this point in time.

Canes' Skinner: Two Points, Shaking Funk?

News: Jeff Skinner scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Blues. He now has three points, including two goals, in his last two games.
Analysis: Is this a sign of life for the beleaguered winger? He has so much talent, but he's been going through the motions this season. We're willing to take a chance on him right now -- there's nowhere to go but up right now.

Canes' Skinner (Illness) To Play Sunday

News: Jeff Skinner (illness) will re-enter the lineup Sunday against the Bruins, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner returned to practice Saturday, indicating he was feeling better and foreshadowing a return to the lineup Sunday. He will enter the contest against the Bruins with eight goals and eight assists while sporting a minus-8 rating in 33 games this season.

Hurricanes' Skinner Back Skating Saturday

News: Jeff Skinner (illness) resumed practicing with the team Saturday.
Analysis: He looked to be a full participant in the session, taking part in rushes with the team's third line. Barring an unforeseen setback, it appears likely he'll be fine to play Sunday against the Bruins, but the Hurricanes figure to officially decide on his status the morning of the game.

Canes' Skinner (Illness) Out Friday

News: Jeff Skinner is feeling ill and will not play Friday against the Flyers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner was absent from the club's morning skate with flu-like symptoms and is being considered day-to-day at this time. The Hurricanes will revisit his status at Saturday's practice before determining if he'll be available for Sunday's matinee date with the Bruins.

Canes' Skinner: Three Points In Last Four Games

News: Jeff Skinner notched his eighth goal of the season in Saturday's shootout loss to the Rangers. He has three three points in his last four games.
Analysis: Will he ever get back to the lofty heights he showed in his rookie season? Maybe, maybe not. Let's hope this little four-game stretch is a foreshadowing of something special. Or at least a solid little run.

Canes' Skinner Fires Off 10 Shots

News: Jeff Skinner couldn't find the back of the net, but rifled off 10 shots on goal in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Jeff Skinner has just one goal in his last seven games, but it's not for a lack of trying as he has 27 shots in that span. He has six goals on the season, but they should start to come more frequently as he has just a 7.5% shooting percentage this year as compared to his career average of 11.1%.

Skinner's Two Points Help 'Canes To Win

News: Jeff Skinner scored the game's opening goal and assisted on Victor Rask's eventual winner in the third period Tuesday against Nashville.
Analysis: After going scoreless in three straight, it's nice to see Jeff Skinner get back on the horse with a multi-point outing. The 22-year-old's been streaky so far this year and hasn't quite found the pace we know he's capable of.

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.
