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. Dec 20 - 10:54 PM

Skinner has gotten off to a slow start this season with two goals and three points in eight games. He saw his playing time limited to just 11:12 minutes on Tuesday, but he bounced back with 19:46 minutes Friday night. It's too early to write Skinner off, but his early slump has been concerning, especially given that he missed the start of the campaign with a concussion.
Nov 8 - 9:59 AM

Jeff Skinner is projected to play on the Hurricanes' fourth line on Tuesday.

Hurricanes coach Bill Peters plans to put Alexander Semin back into the lineup and have him play on the first unit. The bench boss didn't want to break up the second or third lines, so that's why Skinner is getting such a severe demotion. It should only be temporary, but it is still troubling. Skinner has a goal and two points in six games this season.

Oct 25 - 2:47 AM

Jeff Skinner was a minus-three with four shots on goal in Carolina’s 5-0 loss to Calgary on Thursday night.

Carolina was without both Staal brothers in this game and it showed. They were only able to muster 16 shots on goal and didn’t create nearly enough offense to win this game. The Hurricanes are the only team in the NHL without a win this season. Justin Fault, Elias Lindholm and Andrej Sekera were also minus-three tonight. The nightmare season continues for Carolina.
Oct 23 - 11:34 PM

Jeff Skinner (concussion) will make his season debut on Tuesday.

Oct 21 - 6:07 PM

Jeff Skinner saw action on the second line in practice with Elias Lindholm and Victor Rask.

Skinner was just taken off the injured reserve list and is slated to play on Tuesday when the Hurricanes take on Winnipeg. This has the makings of a very good line as Skinner is a scorer, Rask is a good center and Lindholm, who was drafted fifth overall last season, is a good all-round player. Skinner suffered yet another concussion in training camp and Tuesday will be his first game of the season.
Oct 18 - 5:46 AM

Jeff Skinner (concussion) has been activated by Carolina off injured reserve.
