Skinner scored his 18th goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over Detroit. The goal actually moved Skinner into the league lead temporarily, but that disappeared with Patrik Laine's career night. Skinner is on a four-game, five-point streak that includes four goals and one assist. And he has 10 points, including nine goals, in his last nine games. Cha-ching.
Skinner added two more goals, including the game-winner, in a 3-2 overtime victory against the Canadiens on Friday. The 26-year-old is about as hot as the Sabres at the moment. Buffalo has won seven straight, and during that stretch, he has eight goals and nine points. But Skinner's hot streak dates back to the middle of October. He has 16 goals and 22 points with a plus-11 rating in the last 16 games. Skinner has been one of the biggest surprises in fantasy through a quarter of the season. At some point, his production will certainly slow, but don't be surprised if he posts career highs across the board this season.
Skinner scored a power-play goal, the Sabres' lone tally in regulation, during Friday's 2-1 shootout win over the Jets. The 26-year-old winger also fired six shots on net, tying Jack Eichel for the team lead on the night. Skinner has now found the back of the net in four straight games, and after scoring 24 in 82 contests in his final season in Carolina, he's already potted 14 goals in 19 games to begin his tenure in Buffalo.
Skinner scored a goal in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Tampa Bay. Skinner buried his 13th goal of the season Tuesday, on a scramble in front of the net following a blocked shot. The 26-year-old has scored 12 goals in his last 11 contests, more than a goal per, and now has 20 points in 18 games.
Skinner scored two goals in a 6-5 overtime win against the Canadiens on Thursday. The Sabres' winger now has 11 goals on the year, good for second in the league (tied with a pair of Avs). With four in his last three games, Skinner continues to produce in spades for his new team. Up next is a home game versus Vancouver on Saturday, a team giving up an average of 3.35 goals, eighth-worst in the league. Another solid matchup to look forward to.
