Jack Skille will be scratched for his third straight game on Sunday night against the New York Rangers.

Skille hasn't produced much in his 45 games this season with just eight points and 95 hits. He has no fantasy value.
Feb 22 - 7:10 PM

Look for Jack Skille to get back into the Columbus lineup Saturday.

Skille is likely to return as Josh Anderson was sent to the minors but the Blue Jackets could go with seven defensemen as well. Skille has been a healthy scratch in his last two games. He has five goals and seven points with a minus-14 rating in 37 games so he is best left off your fantasy roster.
Jan 31 - 7:57 AM

Columbus has activated Jack Skille (lower body) off of the injured reserve list.

Skille is expected to play on Monday for the first time since Jan. 9. The Blue Jackets now have 13 healthy forwards, so one of them will have to be scratched and Josh Anderson is a likely candidate.
Jan 19 - 12:03 PM

Jack Skille (lower body) might be available for Monday's game.

Nothing has been decided yet though. Skille, who hasn't played since Jan. 9, has two goals and seven points in 35 contests this season. If he does return then that might push Josh Anderson out of the lineup.
Jan 19 - 10:27 AM

Jack Skille (lower body) skated with the Blue Jackets on Thursday.

Skille is projected to rejoin the Blue Jackets towards the end of the month. Before being sidelined, he had two goals and seven points in 35 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 16 - 9:02 AM

Jack Skille (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve.

He has been sidelined since Jan. 9 against Toronto and his initial timetable was set at two weeks. Skille was on the ice for Thursday's optional skate.
Jan 15 - 6:51 PM

Jack Skille will out at least two weeks with a lower body injury he sustained in Friday's tilt with Toronto.

Skille had been playing well for Columbus with five goals, seven points, 16 PIMs, and 86 hits through 35 games so far this season.
Jan 10 - 6:48 PM

Jack Skille (upper body) will be available for Wednesday's game.

Skille left Saturday's contest in the second period after he was struck in the head by the puck. If he plays on Wednesday as anticipated then he'll be able to avoid missing a full contest over that incident. He's projected to play on the third line with Alexander Wennberg and Nick Foligno.

Jack Skille suffered an upper body injury in the second period Saturday and did not return.

Skille will be re-evaluated on Sunday as he took a puck to his head. He really should not be on your fantasy team as he has five goals and six points with a minus-11 rating in 30 games. Consider him day-to-day.

Jack Skille notched a goal in the Blue Jackets’ 3-2 shootout victory against the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

With Kevin Connauton also scoring, the Blue Jackets received goals from two players who don’t normally chip in much on the offensive side. Still, that’s what it’ll take to crawl back into the playoff picture. Skille’s goal was his fifth on the season, to go with six points. Matt Calvert, Ryan Johansen, Fedor Tyutin and David Savard got the helpers.

Jack Skille (undisclosed) returned to action on Friday.

Skille missed four games with the mysterious injury. He had three shots on goal Friday and has three goals in 15 games this season. He is not worth having on your fantasy roster.

Jack Skille (undisclosed) took part in Monday's practice.

Skille might be available on Tuesday, but nothing has been determined. The Blue Jackets have gone three consecutive games without Skille's services.
Tue, Nov 18, 2014 10:31:00 AM

Jack Skille (undisclosed) should be regarded as a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Skille was on the ice Tuesday morning, but he left before the conclusion of the team's practice. He has found the back of the net three times in 14 games in 2014-15.
Tue, Nov 11, 2014 12:54:00 PM

Jack Skille (undisclosed) is questionable for Tuesday's contest.

Skille's injury has been described as general soreness and is related to his dive into the boards during Saturday's contest. He has three goals in 14 contests this season.
