Skille was released from his professional tryout offer by the Senators, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

Skille's days in the NHL are numbered considering he spent last season with Dinamo Minsk of the KHL. He still has time to find a depth role with another team, but don't expect the 2005 first-round pick to make a fantasy impact.

Skille will attend Ottawa's training camp on a professional tryout offer.

EDGE Analysis

Skille spent last season overseas playing for Dinamo Minsk of the KHL, notching 11 goals and 25 points in 41 contests. The seventh overall pick from the 2005 draft last saw action in the NHL in 2016-17, totaling just five goals and nine points in 55 appearances with Vancouver. Even if he's able to secure a spot on the Senators' Opening Night roster, Skille likely won't make a significant contribution this season, so he can safely be ignored in all fantasy formats.

Skille agreed to terms on a deal with Dynamo Minsk of the KHL on Thursday, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports.

EDGE Analysis

Skille logged 55 appearances for Vancouver last year -- totaling five goals and four helpers. When he was in the lineup, the winger averaged a paltry 8:48 of ice time, so it shouldn't come as a surprise NHL clubs were hesitant to sign him. If the 30-year-old can impress in Russia, a return to North America as a bottom-six role player is certainly not out of the question.

Skille (ankle) is not in the lineup for Sunday's home game against San Jose.

EDGE Analysis

Skille misses his fourth contest in a row and remains without a timetable for return at the moment. He had two points in the three games he played between injuries, but he's probably not worthy of consideration in the majority of fantasy formats.

Skille (ankle) is out of commission for Friday's game against the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

Skille has only averaged 8:48 per game in ice time, so this won't have a huge impact on Vancouver's lineup. Also considering he's notched five goals and four assists in 55 games, it probably won't have much of an impact on your fantasy team as well.

Skille was seen walking around on crutches Tuesday and his injured ankle was quite swollen, Jay Janower of Global BC reports.

EDGE Analysis

The status of Skille's ankle would seem to indicate that he won't suit up for Tuesday night's game and he very well could be out for longer. With an astounding eight Vancouver forwards dealing with injuries of varying severity, defenseman Alex Biega could continue to draw into the lineup as a forward.

Skille (ankle) will not suit up for Sunday's road contest against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Skille was just three games returned from a groin injury that kept him out 12 games and will now have to sit again after sustaining this ankle ailment. In those three games, Skille posted a goal, an assist, and a plus-3 rating, so the injury is unfortunately timed to kill the young forward's momentum.

Skille sustained an ankle injury in Saturday's matinee contest against the Wild and will not return.

EDGE Analysis

Skille was trying to control the puck along the side boards when Charlie Coyle plastered him with a hard check and then the two forwards appeared to get tangled up a bit. Hopefully for Skille -- a former Wisconsin Badger -- the injury doesn't turn out to be a serious issue, especially with the Canucks going right back to work in Winnipeg on Sunday.

Skille will return to Vancouver's lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks.

EDGE Analysis

Skille has missed the Canucks' last 12 games while recovering from a groin injury, so he'll likely be eased back into action against the Blackhawks. However, the 29-year-old winger has already fulfilled an extremely minor role for Vancouver this season, as he's only notched seven points while averaging just 8:41 of ice time over 52 games. The American winger's limited role and meager offensive production keep him from being a viable fantasy option.

Skille (groin) will travel with the team for their upcoming four-game road trip.

EDGE Analysis

Skille, who has already missed the Canucks last 12 contests, appears to be taking steps in the right direction, but remains on injured reserve. Prior to getting hurt, the Wisconsin native was bogged down in an 18-game pointless streak with no end in sight. Until he can contribute more consistently, the winger will remain a low-end fantasy option.
