Mar 20 - 2:16 PM

Jack Skille has four goals and seven points in 43 contests this season.

Skille is averaging just 8:53 minutes per game and for a player that's getting that little ice time, he's actually been a decent offensive contributor. In fact, among players getting less than nine minutes a game, Skille's seven points ties him for first in the league with Ryan Reaves.
Jan 28 - 4:22 AM

Jack Skille scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Skille opened the scoring at the 3:50 mark of the first period, and his second marker made it 5-1 in the third frame. The goals were his first two of the year. The 29-year-old has three points in 20 games and he won't have any fantasy value going forward. Jayson Megna (twice) and Erik Gudbranson also scored for Vancouver.

Jack Skille will return to the Canucks' lineup on Sunday against the Ducks.

It'll be the veteran depth forward's second match of the season. He has just 75 career points in 315 games, but he has 518 hits and whole lot of motivation. So if you're searching for a last-minute plug you could do a lot worse.

Jack Skille, Alex Biega and Nikita Tryamkin will each be scratched from Saturday's match with the Kings.

Of the three only Skille has seen any game action so far this season, and he's yet to make an impact on the stat sheet. We wouldn't expect much from any of them, unfortunately.

Jack Skille was the last player off the ice following Monday's practice as he has his sights set 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.
