  • Skinner scored his 11th goal of the season in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Sharks. It was truly a demoralizing loss for the Canes on this night, as Skinner's goal gave them a comfy 4-1 lead deep into the second period, but they just couldn't hang on for the win. Nevertheless, fantasy owners have to be happy about Skinner's performances of late, as he now has nine points in his last 13 games. If he keeps this up, he might just have a shot at surpassing the career-high 63 points he put up last season. Keep him rolling.

  • Skinner dished out two assists in Friday's loss to Toronto. Skinner is more known for his goal-scoring ability, but he played the role of set-up man Friday and brought himself to 15 points on the season. The 25-year-old went through a brief scoreless drought in early November, but aside from that, Skinner has been a stud this season. His nine goals and 79 shots on goal through 21 contests make him worth starting whenever Carolina is in action.

  • Skinner's minus-3 was a low for his team's forwards in a 6-1 loss to the Rangers. This was a bad night all around for the Hurricanes, who got nothing going against the Blueshirts and never gave themselves a chance to compete. For Skinner, the game matches his worst plus-minus rating of the season. He and his team will just want to forget this one in a hurry.

  • Skinner didn't register a point and played just 14:13 during Friday's 3-1 win over Columbus. It's probably best to chalk Skinner's limited minutes up to a lack of power-play opportunities, as Carolina went on the man advantage just a single time. Additionally, while the winger is currently reeling along a four-game point drought, he still has a respectable seven goals, nine points and 50 shots through just 14 games. It's worth noting that Carolina has played the fewest games in the Eastern Conference to this point, so based on his yearly totals, Skinner could be undervalued in some fantasy circles. With three 30-goal campaigns on his resume, no one should sleep on the high-volume shooter.

  • Skinner scored a goal and recorded five shots on net through 19:33 of ice time during Friday's 2-1 loss to St. Louis. Now up to six goals, eight points and 30 shots through nine games, Skinner is off to a solid start. The 25-year-old winger scored a career-high 37 goals last season and is still in the heart of his offensive prime, so fantasy owners should continue to rely on him with confidence in all settings.
