Jeff Skinner will be an alternate captain at home this season.

Friday was the first time the 'A' was on jersey this season as the Hurricanes started on the road for their first six games. Skinner made the most of it as he had two goals and a helper to lead the Canes to the 3-2 win. "It’s nice to be recognized as part of the leadership group," Skinner said Saturday. "There are a lot of guys who are leaders on the team, guys who have been around a long time. Everyone has a voice. It’s cool to have the recognition, but I’m not going to change how I act or how I play with the ‘A.’ You just try to get better as a person, as a player, as a teammate." Skinner is off to a great start with four goals and nine points in only six games. He is a must-start at this time.

Jeff Skinner missed Monday's practice due to an undisclosed injury.

Skinner is regarded as day-to-day, but the Hurricanes don't have the results of his medical testing yet so we might get a firmer timetable and a better understanding of what's bothering him later. What Carolina has already revealed is that Skinner is not dealing with a concussion, which is nice to know given that he does have a history there.

In overtime, it was Mark Scheifele who gave Winnipeg the win. Skinner quietly put together a solid season last year, as he scored 28 goals and 51 points in 82 games.

Jeff Skinner looks to be a man on a mission so far this pre-season.

Skinner, still only 24 years old, is having a strong camp and seems to be over concussion issues that have dogged him in the past. He will be looking to build on his sneaky 28-goal, 51 point 2015-16 season with an even better effort this campaign. Carolina coach Bill Peters recently said of Skinner: "It's obvious Skinner wants to be a "difference maker." He's doing a lot of things well." Don't forget about Skinner on draft day. He could make a nice late-round selection.
