Jack Skille was the last player off the ice following Monday's practice as he has his sights sets on making the Canucks off of a PTO.
"I’m willing to chew through rope to be here," said Skille. "If I prove I’m on a mission and ready to go, I think I should turn some heads. When you look back as a young guy, you always have time and if you don’t make the playoffs, there’s always next year. That’s not the case. I’ve seen how hard it is. I want to win. It’s getting late in my career and I want to ride this bus as long as possible." The 29-year-old is a veteran of 313 NHL games and if he makes the team, it will be as a third or fourth liner. He'll face stiff competition though, including from fellow PTO invites James Sheppard and Tuomo Ruutu. Sep 20 - 8:50 AM

Jack Skille still isn't taking anything for granted.

"Nothing's guaranteed and I'm not expecting it to be guaranteed and I'm not looking for someone to give me a pat on the back and say, 'You're good, you're safe,' because I know I'm not safe," he said. "I'm never going to be safe. And I'm going to keep playing that way." Skille earned a two-way contract with the Avalanche after attending camp on a professional tryout. He skated alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog earlier this week and he was playing with Matt Duchene and Landeskog during Thursday's win over Tampa Bay. Skille has played up and down the lineup and he has three points in nine games, so he's right to play every game like it could be his last.
