Jeff Skinner did not have a shot on goal Friday against the Capitals.

Why is this newsworthy, you may ask? Because it ended his streak of 97 games with at least one shot on target. That's quite a streak and it was the second longest in the league. Skinner has been quietly productive over the second half of the season, just as he was in 2016-17.
Mar 31 - 9:48 AM

Jeff Skinner knocked in his 23rd goal of the season Saturday.

The winger has three goals in his last two games as well as an assist and has 45 points this season in 75 games. The streaky shooter could get hot over the last two weeks like he did last season when he had 17 goals in his final 19 games.
Mar 25 - 7:26 AM

Jeff Skinner scored two goals and an assist in Thursday's 6-5 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

Skinner opened the scoring just 48 seconds into the game. He then assisted on Phil Di Giuseppe's go-ahead goal (3-2) in the second frame before adding the game-winning goal with less than two minutes remaining in regulation. Skinner finished the game with a plus-2 rating and four shots on goal in 15:32 of ice time. The 25-year-old has 22 goals and 44 points in 74 games this season. Valentin Zykov (twice) and Teuvo Teravainen also found the back of the net for the Hurricanes on Thursday night.
Mar 22 - 10:00 PM

Jeff Skinner has reached the 40-point milestone.

Skinner got there by registering an assist on Tuesday in his 67 game of the season. Unfortunately, he's also now gone seven contests without finding the back of the net as he remains stuck at 20 goals. Skinner has surpassed the 30-goal milestone on three separate occasions and finished 2016-17 with 37 markers, but it looks like 2017-18 will be recorded as a down season. That said, goals have a tendency to come in bunches and Skinner might have at least one more big hot streak left in him this campaign. The Hurricanes could certainly use it as they attempt to claw their way into the playoffs.
Mar 7 - 8:20 AM

Jeff Skinner scored his 20th goal of the season in Sunday's 3-2 loss to New Jersey.

It was goal No. 200 of Skinner's career, and it earned the Hurricanes a point. Skinner scored late in the third to send the game to overtime, and now has 37 points in 60 games this season.
Feb 18 - 8:08 PM

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.
Feb 16 - 10:07 AM

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.
Feb 11 - 6:54 AM

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.
Fri, Dec 22, 2017 10:31:00 AM

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.
