Jeff Skinner is just one goal away from the 200th of his career.

Skinner inched within striking distance of that milestone by scoring a goal on Thursday. He's red hot right now with four goals and five points in his last four games. Skinner's goal on Thursday also gave him sole position of fifth place on the Hurricanes' all-time goals list, ahead of Jeff O'Neill. Blaine Stoughton is in fourth place on that list with 219 goals.

Jeff Skinner scored a pair of goals in the Hurricanes' 7-3 win against Los Angeles.

Skinner went from scoring just four goals over the span of 24 games from Dec. 9 through Feb. 9 to netting three goals in just two contests. Goals can certainly come in bunches, so perhaps this is the start of a longer hot streak for Skinner. He has 18 goals and 35 points in 57 contests this season.
Feb 14 - 5:19 AM

Jeff Skinner potted his 16th goal of the season Saturday.

Skinner had been in a goal-scoring slump with only one goal in his last 11 games heading into action on Saturday. He had 37 goals last season with 17 coming in the last 19 contests. He will need another streak similar to that to get to the 30 goal mark for the fourth time in his eight year NHL career.

Jeff Skinner's goal scoring slump hasn't concerned Hurricanes GM Ron Francis.

Skinner has just four goals over his last 27 games. "He’s been certainly snakebit," Francis acknowledged. "It’s not for lack of opportunity or lack of chances. The game coming out of the (NHL bye week) in Detroit he probably could have scored five. He had seven or eight great chances and nothing was going in for him. It’s not like he’s not getting the opportunities, though his shooting percentage ... is not his career norm. I tend to worry about guys when they’re not getting opportunities. I keep saying at some point it’s going to turn around for him. He scored 37 last year. Hopefully one or two go in for him and scorers get hot, right?" Skinner's shooting percentage is down to 7.9 compared to last season's 13.2% and his career average of 10.7%. However, his shots per game is roughly on par with 2016-17 when he finished with 37 goals.
Feb 8 - 5:50 AM

Jeff Skinner has only eight goals in his last 42 games.

Skinner has lit the lamp 15 times this season but after a great start with seven goals in his first ten contests, Skinner has fallen into a rut. He had 37 goals and 63 points last season and was red-hot to end the year with 17 goals in his last 19 games but will need a streak like that again this season to match last year's mark. He is also a minus-22. The 25-year-old is in his eighth NHL season and has yet to make the playoffs with the Hurricanes.
Feb 4 - 7:48 AM

If you're looking for a player who may take off in the second half of the season, consider Jeff Skinner.

Skinner, who scored 37 goals last season, notched 17 of them in a 21-game period from March 1st to the end of the campaign. The streaky Skinner has only 14 markers this season and has yet to catch fire. Adding Skinner sounds like a good speculation to us.
Jan 20 - 9:24 AM

Jeff Skinner found the back of the net in the Hurricanes' 4-0 win against Pittsburgh Thursday night.

Skinner is up to 13 goals and 28 points in 40 contests this season. He might not match his 2016-17 career-high of 63 points, but he shouldn't fall too short of that mark.
Jan 5 - 4:55 AM

Jeff Skinner is on a three-game point streak.

Skinner registered two assists in a 4-1 win versus Nashville on Thursday. That gives him 12 goals and 25 points in 34 contests in 2017-18.

Jeff Skinner scored Carolina's only goal in an 8-1 drubbing at the hands of the Maple Leafs on Tuesday afternoon.

Skinner scored at the 9:07 mark of the first period after the Leafs scored the first two goals of the contest. Toronto recorded six unanswered markers after that, though. Teuvo Teravainen and Haydn Fleury had the assists on Skinner's 12th goal of the year.

Jeff Skinner had one assist in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

Skinner assisted on the Hurricanes' first goal of the night, courtesy of Noah Hanifin. However, the forward hasn't scored a goal in seven straight games. Skinner has nine goals and 16 points in 23 games this season.

Jeff Skinner has been meshing well with new linemate Justin Williams.

The veteran Williams was recently moved to Skinner's line with Derek Ryan in the middle and they seemed to have clicked. Skinner had a pair of assists against Toronto Friday, as did Williams and the 25-year-old is up to nine goals and 15 points this season. Look for 30-35 goals and 50-60 points if Skinner can remain healthy.

Jeff Skinner found the back of the net for the second straight game on Monday.

Although Skinner has just two assists this season, he already has nine goals through 16 contests. He's reached the 30-goal milestone on three separate occasions and established a new career-high in 2016-17 with 37 markers. There's definitely the potential there for him to flirt with a new career-high this season.

Jeff Skinner scored his eighth of the season Saturday in a losing cause.

Skinner snapped a four game goalless streak and has 10 points in 15 games. The talented winger is a sniper, setting a personal best last season with 37 goals. He has hit the 30 goal mark three times in his seven year career and seems poised to do so this season as well.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 06:36:00 AM

Jeff Skinner did not leave the bench on Sunday during the overtime and shootout.

The first thing that comes to mind is that Skinner was hurt but there was no mention of it post-game. Skinner leads the Hurricanes in goals with seven, as he also scored on the power play Sunday. It is puzzling.
