Skille agreed to terms on a deal with Dynamo Minsk of the KHL on Thursday, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports. 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 that NHL clubs were hesitant to sign him. If the 30-year-old can impress in Russia, an eventual 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. 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. 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's injured ankle was significantly swollen and he was seen walking around on crutches Tuesday, Jay Janower of Global BC reports. 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 drawing into the lineup as a forward.
Skille (ankle) will not suit up for Sunday's road contest against the Jets. Skille had just returned three games prior 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.
