Skinner picked up an assist Saturday in a win over the Devils. It was just his second point in his last 10 games.

Skinner has just 32 points in 69 games this season and has never come close to his brilliant 63-point rookie season. Is he a potential 30-goal scorer or just a marginal fantasy play? Right now -- and sadly -- it's the latter.

Skinner potted a pair of power-play goals in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Oilers.

Skinner has been hot recently, tallying 10 points (eight goals) in his last 12 games. Despite that stretch, the 22-year-old has just 29 points in 59 contests on the year, so reaching the 50-point mark for the third time seems unlikely. The winger has been turning a corner though, so he's worth rolling while he keeps it up.

Skinner scored for the third straight game and had five shots on goal in Friday's win over the Capitals.

Skinner has scored six goals in his last eight games and has recorded a whopping 33 shots on goal in that span. This recent streak comes right after a stretch where the 22-year-old went 10 straight games without a point. Talk about inconsistency. Skinner is skating on the second line and playing with Eric Staal and Justin Faulk on the power play, so he's worth riding while he's hot.

Skinner scored the Hurricanes' only goal in a 3-1 loss to the Devils on Saturday night. He has four goals, including two with the man advantage, in his last six games.His value depends on your needs. His plus-minus is horrendous (minus-17) and his power-production is abysmal (four points in 53 games). And he only has 14 goals and nine assists in 53 games. It's hard to believe he's only 22 -- it seems like he's been around for a while. But he's never come close to his offensive output from his rookie season. Use with caution, even with the recent sniping. Remember -- he only had 19 points in 47 games prior to that.

Skinnner scored on the man advantage Monday, helping the Hurricanes to a 6-3 win over the Senators.Fantasy owners were rapidly losing trust in Skinner, as he recently went on a 10-game skid without a single point. But the former Calder Trophy winner is back on track offensively with a goal in three straight games. Skinner is immensely talented but inconsistencies and a minus-16 rating on the year keep him from being an automatic roll in daily formats.

Skinner recorded a power-play goal - his first of the season - in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Ducks. It was the first time he'd hit the scoresheet in over a month, with his last point coming Jan. 10 against the Blues - a span of 11 games.No two ways about it, it's been a miserable season for Skinner, and for those fantasy leaguers who own him. With just 20 points in 48 games, he is not likely to match the 54 points he posted in 71 games last season, and the high-water mark of 63 points he recorded in his rookie season four years ago is a distant memory. At this point, perhaps the only thing that can revive Skinner's slumping career is a change of scenery. In the meantime, feel free to look for viable fantasy alternatives elsewhere on your waiver wire.
