Skinner notched his eighth goal of the season in Saturday's shootout loss to the Rangers. He has three three points in his last four games.

Will he ever get back to the lofty heights he showed in his rookie season? Maybe, maybe not. Let's hope this little four-game stretch is a foreshadowing of something special. Or at least a solid little run.

Skinner couldn't find the back of the net, but rifled off 10 shots on goal in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Red Wings.

Skinner has just one goal in his last seven games, but it's not for a lack of trying as he has 27 shots in that span. He has six goals on the season, but they should start to come more frequently as he has just a 7.5% shooting percentage this year as compared to his career average of 11.1%.

Skinner scored the game's opening goal and assisted on Victor Rask's eventual winner in the third period Tuesday against Nashville.

After going scoreless in three straight, it's nice to see Skinner get back on the horse with a multi-point outing. The 22-year-old's been streaky so far this year and hasn't quite found the pace we know he's capable of.

Skinner collected a pair of assists in Saturday's loss to Colorado.

Skinner has been hot lately, recording two goals and five points in his last three games. Despite the recent production, it's worth noting Skinner skated on the third line Saturday, logging a season-low 12:57 of ice time. He's still playing on the top power-play unit, however, so his production isn't likely to slow down anytime soon. The 22-year-old is having a productive season thus far, collecting five goals and 11 points in 16 games.

Skinner scored a goal and assisted on Eric Staal's power-play tally in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.

Things have been slow for Skinner to start the year, but his proclivity for putting pucks on net and low shooting percentage point to some ill luck. He's got goals in consecutive games now, though, and his fantasy owners will be hoping for him to build on that. Thursday's helper was his first power-play point of the season.

Skinner notched a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-1 win over the Flames.

Monday extended Skinner's streak to three straight games with a point, bringing him to three each in goals and assists. The goal was the 100th of his career, and he seems poised to reach the 30 goal and 50 point mark.

Skinner will be moved to the fourth line for Tuesday's game against Columbus, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

With Alexander Semin returning to the top line after sitting out as a healthy scratch, coach Bill Peters reportedly did not want to disrupt the chemistry of his second and third lines, so the only spot left for Skinner was on the fourth line with Jay McClement and Patrick Dwyer. Obviously, the move does nothing for Skinner's fantasy value, however he's far too talented for this to be a permanent demotion. We suggest putting Skinner on your fantasy bench until he gets promoted back to a scoring line.

Skinner tallied his first point of the season on a second-period goal Friday against the Oilers.

Sidelined for the four games earlier in the season with a concussion, Skinner had struggled to a minus-4 rating over his first two games back, before righting the ship Friday. The collective stink of the Hurricanes, the league's only winless team, could ravage his plus/minus rating, but Skinner should be on track for another 50-point campaign if health permits.

Skinner (concussion) will make his regular season debut Tuesday at Winnipeg, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. "He looks hungry and ready to go," according to head coach Bill Peters.

Skinner missed the Canes' first four games of the season after suffering the injury during the preseason, but has reportedly looked sharp in practices lately. He will try to provide a boost to a struggling Carolina squad that is still looking for its first win of the season (0-2-2).

Skinner (concussion) was activated from injured reserve Friday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Although Skinner was unable to return to action Thursday as the Hurricanes had hoped, it appears that with a few practices over the weekend, he'll make his season debut in the team's next game on Oct. 21 versus Winnipeg. Skinner skated on the second line with Victor Rask and Elias Lindholm at Friday's practice, and it appears he'll stick there once the Hurricanes resume play. His return should be a welcome development for a scoring-starved Hurricanes squad that had already been playing without both Staal brothers.
