    • Inks one-year deal with Avalanche

      News: Jack Skille signed a one-year contract with Colorado Tuesday.
      Analysis: The former first-round pick tallied two points (one goal, one assist) in five exhibitions with Colorado this preseason, and apparently showed enough in camp to secure an Opening Night roster spot with the team. Jack Skille has tallied 61 points (30 goals, 31 assists) in 239 career NHL games, and will likely slot into a bottom-six role with the Avalanche in 2015-16.
    • Avs' Skille Misses Practice Monday

      News: Jack Skille was held out of practice Monday with a leg injury, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
      Analysis: It's unclear exactly when Jack Skille suffered the setback, or the extent of the injury. Skille signed a professional tryout offer with the Avalanche earlier in the month, so he'll likely need to return to action before the end of the preseason to earn a roster spot.
    • Skille To Sign PTO With Avalanche

      News: Jack Skille will likely sign a professional tryout offer with the Avalanche, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
      Analysis: Jack Skille has been taking informal skates with other Avalanche players in preparation for training camp, suggesting he'll be auditioning for a roster spot this fall. The 28-year-old saw action in 45 games with the Blue Jackets a season ago, recording six goals and two assists. He'll likely find himself in contention for a third- or fourth-line job.
    • Blue Jackets' Skille Out For Season

      News: Jack Skille will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery next week, the Blue Jackets' official site reports.
      Analysis: Jack Skille, who was placed on IR by the team Wednesday, finishes up the season with eight points and 16 penalty minutes to go along with a minus-18 rating in 45 games for Columbus. His absence is thus more of a hit to the team's depth up front than it is to fantasy owners.
    • Jackets' Skille (Undisclosed) Out Tuesday

      News: Jack Skille (undisclosed) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Sabres, and he is considered day-to-day.
      Analysis: Jack Skille seemingly has a shot to return for Thursday's game against the Canadiens, though it's currently unclear what kind of injury he might be dealing with. He hasn't made much noise this season, tallying just eight points (six goals) in 45 games.
    • Jackets' Skille Pots Goal In Loss

      News: Jack Skille netted his sixth goal of the season in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Kings.
      Analysis: Jack Skille had failed to register a point in his previous nine contests, and the goal is his first since Dec. 20. With only eight points on the season, as well as a minus-15 rating, his fantasy limited is restricted to only very deep leagues.
    • Skille Activated By Columbus

      News: Jack Skille (lower body) has been activated off IR by the Blue Jackets.

      News: Jack Skille (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
      Analysis: Jack Skille was due to be sidelined until after the All-Star break with the injury, so the move to IR is just a formality to open up an extra roster spot for the Jackets. Forward Josh Anderson was recalled from AHL Springfield in a corresponding move.
    • Jackets' Skille (Lower Body) Out Two Weeks

      News: Jack Skille is expected to miss two weeks due to a lower-body injury.
      Analysis: It stands to reason that Jack Skille suffered the injury at some point during Friday's loss to the Maple Leafs. With the winger now likely out through the All-Star break, Corey Tropp will assume a regular spot in the Jackets' lineup.
    • Jackets' Skille (Face) Set To Play Wednesday

      News: Jack Skille (face) will be available for Wednesday's game against the Wild, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
      Analysis: Jack Skille took a puck to the ear in the second period of Saturday's loss to the Bruins, but he's been present for all of the Jackets' practices since that time. He'll play Wednesday at his usual spot on the team's third line.
