    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Extends scoring streak in win over Jets

    Skinner's assist in the first period of Friday's 5-3 win over the Jets extended his scoring streak to four games (1G, 4A). The good news is, with 18 goals and 12 assists in 53 games, Skinner is just one point away from the 31 he scored last season. The bad news? He's super streaky, and you just never know when that next point is going to come. Given his current pace, Skinner could wind up with 50 points this season, or 35. In reality, the truth probably lies somewhere in the middle.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Chips in with goal, assist

    Skinner scored a goal on five shots and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-0 trouncing of the Blackhawks. Skinner had been cold over the last five games coming in, picking up just a lonely assist to go with a minus-6 rating, but he snapped out of it in impressive fashion. His goal to open the scoring ended up being the game-winner thanks to Eddie Lack's shutout. Still, Skinner remains wildly inconsistent, equally prone to huge games and lengthy lapses, and that limits his fantasy utility to deeper formats.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Picks up goal, assist in win

    Skinner opened the scoring with his 17th goal of the year and added an assist Thursday in a 4-1 win over St. Louis. The Hurricanes came into St. Louis and stunned the Blues with a dominant third period, but first, Skinner got things started by making a kick stop on a slick (if slightly off-target) Andrej Nestrasil pass, then firing the puck into the open St. Louis net. He added an assist on Brock McGinn's insurance tally to help seal the Hurricanes' fourth consecutive victory. That's goals in consecutive games for Skinner, and he's finally starting to pick up assists too -- five of the eight helpers he's picked up this season have come in the last 10 games.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Snags another winner

    Skinner potted his fifth game-winning goal of the year in overtime Tuesday against Pittsburgh. The scoring pace remains a little too slow -- 23 points in 44 games only helps in deeper formats, though at least he has 16 goals -- but Skinner has had a nose for the net in big moments this season. No other Hurricane has more than three game-winners, and only a handful of players around the league have as many as Skinner's five. Still, that doesn't offer a lot of help to fantasy owners.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Nets game-winner vs. Caps

    Skinner potted the game-winning goal in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Capitals. It was his team-leading 15th goal and 20th point of the season. Skinner has been wildly inconsistent this season, as 10 of his points have come in just four games. He's still on pace for roughly a 40-point season, but expect his scoring to continue to come in fits and starts.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Notches pair of assists in Sunday's win

    Skinner notched a pair of assists in Sunday's 2-1 win against the Blackhawks. Assists have been hard to come by for Skinner, as he only has five on the season after Sunday. He's scored nine of his 14 goals in December and now has 12 points in 12 games with the month winding down.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Two hat tricks in three games

    Skinner accounted for all three of the Hurricanes' goals in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Philadelphia. Unfortunately, Skinner couldn't carry over his regulation performance to the extra period. Nonetheless, that's two hat tricks in three games for the 23-year-old winger, who's actually racked up nine of his season's 14 tallies just in the last six games. He's got a very extreme stat line this year, with 14 goals and only three assists; expect Skinner to find some balance between those stats as the season wears on.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Leads Canes to victory with hat trick

    Skinner scored his third career hat trick in Friday's win over the Ducks. This guy continues to pile on the goals, as he's now scored six times in his last four games. While he's only got 13 points in 29 games, Skinner is climbing up the goal-scoring charts and is up to 11 tallies on the year. He's delivered in the clutch, having scored the game winner in two of his last four outings. Keep him rolling.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Showing signs of offensive life

    Skinner scored two goals Saturday, including the game winner, in a 3-2 victory over the Canadiens. The winner came on the power play. He has a paltry nine points in 26 games this season, but there may be signs of life. Skinner has delivered five of those points, including four of his seven goals, in his last seven games. We certainly don't trust the run yet, but we are paying close attention. Skinner has real talent, but it's been a while since it's been on display.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: On pace for career-worst season

    Skinner has just six points in 23 games this season, putting him on pace for a career-worst 21-point campaign. Skinner's offensive output has been in steady decline ever since his 63-point rookie campaign five seasons ago. He continues to see roughly 16 minutes per night playing on the Canes' third line, and still fires the puck with regularity, averaging just under three shots per game. However, he just can't seem to put any points on the board. Of course, part of the problem is the weak supporting cast he's saddled with in Carolina; on the other hand, the multitude of injuries he has suffered over the years - notably several concussions - may have prevented him from reaching his potential. Bottom line, he should not be on anyone's fantasy roster outside of ultra-deep leagues.
