Rangers coach Alain Vigneault is looking for Brady Skjei "to improve his decision making with the puck."

That said, Vigneault feels Skjei has taken positive steps this season. Skjei is a 22-year-old rookie, so naturally there's room for him to grow. Offensively he's shown promise with two goals and 24 points in 53 games despite averaging just 16:37 minutes per contest.

Thanks to the helper he picked up in Sunday's 1-0 overtime win over the Red Wings, rookie Brady Skjei has reached another milestone.

Brady Skjei was scratched Friday as a coach's decision.

"I thought the last little while he's been kind of struggling," coach Alain Vigneault said. "When we were looking at the scoring chances [against] and all the other [information], we felt this was the best move." Skjei received a bit of wake-up call and should be back in the lineup after the holiday break.

Brady Skjei will be made a surprise scratch against the Wild on Friday.

Odds are this isn't an indictment on the rookie defender, who has posted a goal and 15 points with 27 blocks and 63 hits through 35 games thus far. Adam Clendening will tag in, which may or may not be his holiday gift from coach Alain Vigneault.

Brady Skjei (mouth) is expected to be available for Thursday's contest.

Skjei missed Wednesday's practice to have dental work done. That's due to an incident on Tuesday when he took a skate to the chin. He temporarily left that game, but was able to return while wearing a full face shield so he might have the same protection on during Thursday's game.

Brady Skjei didn't skate on Wednesday morning.

He received some dental work, so he wasn't available. Skjei was limited to 12:41 of ice time against Chicago on Tuesday. He has one goal and 13 assists in 31 games this year.

Brady Skjei scored his first NHL goal Sunday.

The defenseman was thrilled as well he should be. "It was awesome," Skjei said. "I’ve been waiting a while and you know I got a lucky bounce, but I’ll take it for sure." Including last season, it was the 37th game of his young career. The former number one pick of the Rangers in 2011, is highly touted and is worth looking at as he has 14 points in 30 games.

Brady Skjei had his five game points streak end Saturday.

The rookie defenseman played seven NHL games last season and then chipped in with five during the playoffs. He had six assists in his previous five games before the Flames ended the streak Saturday. Skjei has nine assists in 15 games and has been a valued member of the Rangers defensive corps this season.

Brady Skjei registered an assist in the Rangers' 5-3 win over the Islanders on Thursday.

Skjei was in danger of being left off the Rangers' opening game roster, but he managed to squeak onto the team. He only logged 14:14 minutes in the opener though, which was significantly less than the Rangers' five other blueliners.
Fri, Oct 14, 2016 11:05:00 AM

Brady Skjei might be the final player cut from the Rangers' opening game roster.

Nothing has been made official yet, but if the Rangers plan to trim their roster by a defenseman, then it would make sense for it to be Skjei. Unlike all the other blueliners still with the Rangers, Skjei can be sent to the AHL without first clearing waivers. Skjei also didn't have the best of training camps.
