Skjei (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports. Skjei's status for Tuesday's contest likely won't be determined until Carolina takes the ice for pregame warmups. If he's able to go, Skjei will likely skate on the Hurricanes' second pairing versus Chicago.
Skjei tallied a goal on four shots in Thursday's 3-1 win over Detroit. He also added two PIM and two hits. Skjei snuck in from the point and picked the corner from the slot to open the scoring 4:40 into the second period. It was the third goal of the year for the defenseman, and his second in the past three games. The 27-year-old has nine points in 46 games in his first full season in Carolina.
Skjei (concussion) will rejoin Carolina's lineup for Thursday's game versus Detroit, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports. Skjei's expected to return to a second-pairing role following his four-game absence. He's notched eight points through 45 contests this campaign.
Skjei is in the NHL's concussion protocol, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports. Recoveries from concussions are impossible to predict, so until the Hurricanes release another update on his status, Skjei can be considered out indefinitely. With Skjei on the shelf, Joakim Ryan is expected to join Carolina's active roster and make his season debut Thursday against the Panthers.
