Skinner produced a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Devils.
Skinner did his damage late, assisting on Owen Power's first NHL goal to stretch Bufflao's lead to 4-2 before capping the scoring with his 32nd goal of the season.

Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Reaches 30 goals
Skinner scored his 30th goal of the season in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers.
His first-period tally gave the Sabres a 3-1 lead, but the team's offense went quiet the rest of the way. Skinner has reached the 30-goal plateau for the fifth time in his career and the first time since he potted a career-high 40 in 2018-19. Matching that mark is probably unattainable, but given the heater he's on -- seven goals and 13 points in the last 11 games -- Skinner could make it close.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Strong game against former team
Skinner dished out two helpers in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes.
Skinner bumped his point streak up to four games, and he's compiled two goals and four assists over that stretch. He needs one more goal to reach 30 for the fifth time in his career -- Skinner's first three 30-goal campaigns came in a Hurricanes uniform, but his career high of 40 was scored as a member of the Sabres in 2018-19....

Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Two points in losing effort
Skinner scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Panthers.
The veteran sniper tried to spark a late rally, as both points came in less than two minutes during the third period with Florida ahead 4-1, but that was as close as Buffalo would get. Skinner is on another heater, racking up five goals and nine points in the last eight games, and he's now two tallies shy of his fifth career 30-goal campaign.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Slides helper Monday
Skinner notched an assist and four shots on goal in Monday's 6-5 win over the Blackhawks.
Skinner reached the 20-assist mark when he set up the second of Victor Olofsson's second-period tallies. The 29-year-old Skinner is on a five-game, six-point streak. He's enjoyed a productive season with 47 points, 210 shots on net and a minus-10 rating through 65 outings, reemerging as a top-line option after posting a combined 37 points in 112 contests in the previous two years....

Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Lights lamp twice in loss
Skinner scored two goals in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Capitals.
Both tallies drew the Sabres back level after they'd fallen behind by a goal.

On the season, the veteran winger is up to 26 goals and 45 points through 63 contests.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Scores in Sunday's OT win
Skinner scored a goal on five shots and added two PIM in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Canucks.
Skinner gave the Sabres a 2-1 lead in the second period that didn't last. The 29-year-old entered Sunday cold with no points in his last six outings, so it's encouraging to see him back on the scoresheet. He's up to 24 tallies, 42 points, 198 shots on net and a minus-11 rating through 61 appearances this season. While somewhat streaky, Skinner's top-line and power-play duties make him a solid scoring option in standard fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less

Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Leads offense in upset win
Skinner had a goal, an assist and a game-high six shots in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Maple Leafs.
Skinner's third-period tally snapped the seven-game goal drought he's been on since a four-goal outburst in Montreal. He's up to 21 goals and 39 points in 53 games, so Skinner still has an outside chance to challenge his career high of 63 points, which the 29-year-old winger has reached on three separate occasions....

Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Two helpers in loss
Skinner picked up two assists in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Avalanche.
He had a hand in the first two tallies of Tage Thompson's hat trick.

Two of his goals and his helper came on the power play, while he also recorded the game-winner with his first of two tallies in the third period. Skinner's hat trick was his first since October 2018, while Jack Eichel was the last Sabre to rack up four goals in a game back in November 2019.

Skinner produced an assist and seven shots on goal in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Avalanche.
Skinner set up Dylan Cozens' second-period tally, which is all the Sabres could put past Darcy Kuemper. The 29-year-old Skinner wasn't particularly consistent in January, but he managed seven goals and four helpers through 12 games. The winger is up to 28 points, 131 shots on net and a minus-7 rating in 42 outings overall while looking the part in a top-six role.... See More ... See Less

Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Two-point effort Monday
Skinner scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Red Wings.
His third-period tally gave Buffalo a 2-0 lead, but it wasn't enough to withstand a late Detroit rally. Skinner is off to a flying start to 2022, scoring five goals and six points in six January games, and despite the struggles of the team around him he's on pace to reach the 30-goal plateau for the first time since 2018-19....

Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Drops pair in win
Skinner had two goals and four PIM in a 4-1 win over the Predators on Thursday.
Skinner scored on the power play in the second period to give Buffalo a lead it would hold onto for the remainder of the game before scoring again in the third period. The 29-year-old has four goals over his last four games as well as eight PIM, though the penalties are certainly less bankable. The left winger is on pace to eclipse the 23 points he scored in 59 games in 2019; he has 21 points through 34 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Returns to practice Friday
Skinner (COVID-19 protocols) was in attendance for Friday's practice session after clearing the league's protocols.
Skinner was off to a strong start to the season but has just one goal in his last eight contests. However, he has put 23 shots on net in that span. After a disappointing 2020-21 campaign that saw the winger record a mere seven goals, fantasy players will no doubt be concerned about Skinner's current slump. It's probably too early to dump the Toronto native in season-long formats, though he'll need to get back on the scoresheet soon to warrant keeping.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Enters COVID-19 protocols
Skinner entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Tuesday.
Skinner hasn't missed any game action this season and may not have to with the league postponing Buffalo's schedule until Dec. 27. With 17 points in 30 games, Skinner -- who's still not yet 30 -- is playing his best hockey since 2018-19's 63-point effort.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Clashes with Jackets postponed
Skinner and the Sabres will see Tuesday and Thursday's matchups with Columbus postponed.
With various cancelations, Buffalo will not play against until Dec. 27 versus the Islanders, at the earliest. For his part, the 29-year-old Skinner has garnered just one goal and one assist in his previous eight contests. Still, with nine goals in 30 games this year, Skinner has already topped his 2020-21 season total and should be capable of getting back over the 20-goal threshold.... See More ... See Less
