    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Leading scorer for Hurricanes in 2015-16

    Skinner finished with a team-high 51 points this season, the third-best total of his six-year career. What's more -- his injury-plagued past appears to be behind him, as he played in all 82 games this season, the first time he's done that since his rookie season back in 2010-11. Skinner has two years left on his current six-year contract, and figures to be back in a top-six role for the Hurricanes next season.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Pots in goal for 50 points on year

    Skinner scored the lone goal for Carolina in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jackets. Skinner was able to find twine for the third time in the last five outings, including two straight. The 23-year-old has refused to be shy around the crease, firing towards net 26 times in that span and seemingly always hungry for more tallies. The winger now sits at 50 points this campaign -- the third time Skinner's reached that feat in his career.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Tallies first multi-point game in three weeks

    Skinner contributed a goal on six shots and an assist to the cause in a 4-3 win over the Rangers on Thursday night. It's got to be a pleasant change of pace for Skinner's fantasy owners that the points have been coming steadily for him rather than in small bursts -- although this was his first multi-point effort since March 8, he's found the scoresheet in four of his last five and 10 of his last 15 games, tallying up six goals and eight assists in that span. It helps that he's been firing the puck with wild abandon lately, notching 21 shots in the last four games. Skinner's now just a point away from hitting 50 for the third time in his six-year career.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Nabs helper in win over Jackets

    Skinner notched an assist in Thursday's 3-2 come-from-behind win over the Blue Jackets. It was his 10th point in his last 11 games. Make no mistake, Skinner is having a pretty special season. With 45 points in 74 games, Skinner has returned to fantasy relevance following his disappointing 31-point campaign last year, and with eight games remaining, he has a very good chance of cracking the 50-point mark for just the third time in his career. Furthermore, not only is he hitting the scoresheet with more regularity, he's really made strides in the plus-minus department this year with a +1 rating, compared to -24, -14 and -21, respectively, in the last three seasons. Feel free to deploy him in your fantasy lineup whenever he takes to the ice.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Plays hero in shootout win

    Skinner scored two goals -- including the game-tying tally with 0.2 seconds left in the third period -- in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over Ottawa. He picked up a loose puck out of a scramble with time running out and simply fired it past Ottawa goalie Andrew Hammond just before the final horn. That was as much heroism as he could muster, as his shootout-opening attempt was denied, but he still did plenty enough to send the Hurricanes on their way to victory. With nine points in his last nine games, Skinner has now pushed his way over 40 for the season, with 25 of those being goals. Fantasy owners still have to feel like there's unrealized potential here, as we're still waiting for Skinner to have a season that matches the 63 points he put up as a rookie in 2010-11. That's highly unlikely to transpire this year.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Two-point game on Saturday

    Skinner notched a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to Tampa Bay. He has four points in his last three games and 39 in 66 so far. Skinner is having his best goal-scoring season since 2013-14 and is actually delivering some real fantasy value. Go figure.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Pots goal and assist in loss

    Skinner potted a goal and grabbed an assist in Sunday's loss to the Blues. Skinner also fired off a game-high eight shots and recorded a plus-2 rating, but the 'Canes still dropped this one by a three-goal margin. The 23-year-old broke a three game pointless streak with the pair of points, but he'll need a very strong finish to top the 50-point plateau for the third time in his career.

    Hurricanes' Jeff Skinner: Gets back on scoresheet with two goals

    Skinner tallied two goals -- one of which was a game-winning power-play marker -- in Friday's 5-2 win over the visiting Sharks. Both of Skinner's snipes came in the third period, as the Hurricanes finally broke through for three goals in the frame after blasting 19 shots on Martin Jones in the second. With the pair of goals, the 23-year-old is up to 21 on the season, marking the fourth such time (in four full NHL seasons) he's reached the 20-goal plateau.

    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.
