The Oilers assigned Skinner to AHL Bakersfield on Tuesday, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

Skinner was brought up on emergency conditions while Mike Smith was dealing with a leg injury, but Smith will be ready for Wednesday's matchup against the Senators. The 21-year-old will continue to fine-tune his game and improve on his current .890 save percentage in the minors.
