Jeff Skinner rang the bell again, but this time just once during Carolina's 4-2 win over Washington.

Not that any one is really complaining that Skinner scored on Thursday night. But it was his first tally since his second hat trick of the month seven games ago on Dec. 15th. Regardless, he's now up to 15 goals and 20 points in 38 games.

Jeff Skinner scored a hat trick in a 5-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.

He needed an empty-net tally to complete the hat trick, but Skinner will welcome any bounce he can get as he has had another underwhelming start to the season.

Jeff Skinner scored twice as the Hurricanes defeated the Canadiens on Saturday night 3-2.

For all his ability and what he teased us with in his rookie year, Skinner has been a disappointment this season. Seven goals and nine points just isn’t going to cut it. He’s a player who can flick the switch in a flash, though, as his talent has never been in question. Joakim Nordstrom got the other goal, while Andrej Nestrasil picked up two assists.

Jeff Skinner scored his fourth goal of the season in Sunday's match with the Kings.

It's been a trying season for Skinner so far. He has but five points and owns a shooting percentage of just seven, well below his 10.3 career percentage. This is the second straight season of a sub-eight percentage shooting percentage though, so perhaps this is simply the new reality for Skinner.

Jeff Skinner scored the tying goal with only three seconds left in the third to put the game into overtime where the Hurricanes eventually won 3-2.

Skinner had only a goal and one point in eight previous games before scoring Saturday. "We had a lot of good looks," Skinner said. "Hopefully it can start a good roll for me. I felt like I’ve had a couple of good looks recently I’d like to see go in and it’s nice to contribute to a win." Skinner had five shots on goal and managed ten attempts so perhaps his offensive game is coming around.

Jeff Skinner only has one goal and no assists in his last seven games.

Skinner has just three points in 12 contests overall. He's obviously been far better than that in the past, but keep in mind he failed to live up to expectations in 2014-15 as well. We do expect him to have brighter spots during the season than we have our doubts about him even reaching the 40-point mark.

Jeff Skinner scored the only goal for the Hurricanes in their 4-1 loss to the Capitals on Saturday night.

Skinner has had a slow start to the season, with this being his first goal and second point. That being said, he has all the talent in the world to post another 30-goal season. It’s early yet, so don’t worry too much about stats on such a small sample. Justin Faulk had a team-high five shots on net.

Jeff Skinner scored twice as the Hurricanes defeated the Islanders on Saturday 5-3.

Skinner is a key player for the Hurricanes this season. Will he be an 18-goal guy like last year, or a 33-goal guy like he was two years ago? We think he can bounce back and be a factor again. He’s still 23 years old. Victor Rask, Joakim Nordstrom and Ron Hainsey got the other goals. Eddie Lack made 14 saves on 16 shots.
