Jeff Skinner is hoping he can turn a tough 2014-15 season into a learning experience that will benefit his development.
"For me it was an opportunity to learn and grow from," he said. "To go through stretches throughout the year and not be producing is frustrating, but you try to turn it into a positive experience by learning from it." He's aware that his name has surfaced in some trade rumors, but he understands that comes with the territory of being a professional athlete. He has four years remaining on a contract that carries a $5.725 million cap hit. Skinner is set to earn $6 million in each of those years. Apr 13 - 4:13 PM

Jeff Skinner ended the season Saturday on an 18 game goalless streak.

The winger managed only two assists in that span as he ended up with only 18 goals in what was a very disappointing season for the 22-year-old. Skinner broke into the NHL full of potential and has had two 30 goal seasons in the NHL in his previous four years but has battled concussion problems of late. You have to wonder if the concussions have already taken its toll on the young forward.

Jeff Skinner has not found the back of the net in his last 13 games.

Skinner has been stuck on 18 goals for a long time and it's now conceivable that he may not hit the 20 goal mark with only a week to go in the season. The 22-year-old has 31 points in 72 games with a horrid minus-22 rating. Once thought of as one of the rising stars in the NHL, Skinner has certainly taken a great fall, reminiscent of Humpty Dumpty.

Jeff Skinner had an assist in a 2-1 overtime loss to Ottawa Tuesday night.

Skinner ended a four-game point drought. With 18 goals and 30 points in 64 games, this is shaping up to be the worst season of his young career from a points per game perspective.

Jeff Skinner scored a goal in Carolina's 3-0 win over Washington.

The Hurricanes have consistently been one of the Eastern Conference's worst teams this season, so the fact that they were able to blank the Capitals is a little surprising. Carolina scored a goal in each of the three periods on Friday. Skinner has now scored a goal in each of his last three games. The 22-year-old has 16 goals and 25 points in 55 games this season. He was named the second star of the game. Carolina has now won three of their last four contests.

Jeff Skinner tickled the twine for the Hurricanes, but they fell 3-1 to the Devils on Saturday night.

Skinner scored at 13:56 of the third period, for his 14th of the season. Though he does have three goals over his past five games, Skinner has just 23 points this season. There’s still a ton of talent here, so keep an eye on him later in next season’s drafts. Alexander Semin and John-Michael Liles got the assists.

Jeff Skinner potted a goal for the Hurricanes in their 6-3 loss to the Wild on Saturday night.

Skinner scored his 12th in the second period, to give him goals in back-to-back games. It has been a difficult year from an offense perspective for Skinner, who has 12 goals and 21 points. The silver lining is that he has 151 shots on goal, so a little more puck luck could go a long way to him ending the season on a high note. Elias Lindholm and Andrej Nestrasil got the other goals. Jay McClement and Justin Faulk each recorded two helpers.

Jeff Skinner says that the 2014-15 season has been frustrating for him.

With only 11 goals thus far, his fantasy owners are saying the same thing. He has only 20 points in 48 games this season. "It’s been a little frustrating for me, personally," Skinner said. "When you want to help the team win, for me, being a part of that is producing offensively. That’s part of my job. So, yeah, it’s a little frustrating." He is capable of so much more and at age 22 it is still way to early to give up on him in keeper fantasy pools.

Jeff Skinner scored his 11th marker of the season in a 2-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night.

Skinner snapped a 10 game pointless drought, finally managing to score just his 20th point in 48 games this season. He also went a -2 in the game and fired seven shots on goal. It was a flash of his normal self in what has been a very inconsistent season for the 22-year-old.
Feb 12 - 10:18 PM

Jeff Skinner returned to Friday's game after going into the end boards in the second period.

It was thought that Skinner may have suffered yet another concussion but all was well and he returned to the game later in the period. Coach Bill Peters said after the game that it was Skinner's shoulder that took the blow. Skinner has 10 goals and 19 points this season in 39 games and has not been a fantasy asset this season.
Jan 17 - 7:22 AM

Jeff Skinner’s two-point night wasn’t enough to lead the Hurricanes in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Blues on Saturday night.

Skinner scored in the first and assisted on Victor Rask’s first-period goal as well. Skinner, who had not scored since Dec. 20, now has goals in two straight games. He has 10 goals and 19 points on the year, so he hasn't been an asset in fantasy leagues. Rask also had an assist. Eric Staal and Riley Nash got the other goals in the loss.
Jan 10 - 11:00 PM

Jeff Skinner scored a goal in Carolina's 5-2 win against Buffalo Thursday night.

Skinner ended a seven-game point drought. He's been a big disappointment so far this season with nine goals and 17 points in 36 contests. Of course, he's not the only forward in Carolina that has substantially underperformed this season. They still have half a season left, but with the Hurricanes' playoff hopes already dead, it's hard to put too much faith in the idea that individual players staging a big comeback. Even still, he's at very least worth keeping an eye on.
Jan 9 - 10:34 AM

Jeff Skinner (flu) was back at practice Saturday.

Skinner missed Friday's game with the illness. He practiced alongside Riley Nash and Chris Terry. Skinner has had a tough start to the season with only eight goals and 16 points in 33 games. He'll try to take it up a notch in the second half of the season.
Jan 4 - 6:19 AM

Jeff Skinner is dealing with flu-like symptoms.

Skinner will miss Friday's game as a result. Jordan Staal will be back though and probably take Skinner's place on a line with Eric Staal and Elias Lindholm. Skinner has eight goals and 16 points in 33 games this season.
Jan 2 - 11:17 AM

Jeff Skinner got a goal for the Hurricanes in their 3-2 shootout loss to the Rangers on Saturday night.

Sure, after such a tremendous rookie season in 2010-11, eight goals and eight assists don’t seem all that amazing for the 22-year-old. But it’s nice to see him healthy and producing, and the point production should continue to follow. Chris Terry got the other goal for Carolina. Nathan Gerbe, Elias Lindholm and Justin Faulk picked up the assists.
