Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: In lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei (undisclosed) will play in Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks.

Skjei ultimately didn't end up missing time with the apparently minor injury. He's in his usual top-four role on defense.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Snipes opening goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Enters concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Done for night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei won't return to Tuesday's game against the Lightning after suffering an upper-body injury.

Skjei logged 8:32 of ice time before exiting Tuesday's game. The nature of his injury is unclear, and he'll have just two days to recover before Thursday's road clash against the Panthers. Skjei has recorded eight points through 44 games this season.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Collects helper on lone goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei posted an assist and five shots on goal in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Blackhawks.

Skjei set up Andrei Svechnikov for the Hurricanes' lone tally at 15:41 of the second period. With three points in his last four games, Skjei has shown a bit more life on offense. The 27-year-old rearguard has just six points and 58 shots on net through 34 contests this year. He's added 47 blocked shots, 41 hits, 18 PIM and a plus-4 rating in a top-four role.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Ice time on the rise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei skated a season-high 24:08 in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Panthers, but failed to crack the scoresheet for the 11th consecutive game.

The Canes continue to deploy Skjei primarily on the second defensive pairing opposite Brett Pesce, but Pesce remains the more offensively-minded of the two. Skjei currently leads all Canes defensemen in hits (27) and is third in blocked shots (25), so he is clearly more focused on his defensive duties at the moment.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Nabs helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei recorded an assist and two hits in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jackets.

Skjei picked up his third helper in the last four games on a Vincent Trocheck goal in the second period. The 26-year-old Skjei has heated up offensively, but it's not likely to last long. He has added 12 hits, 10 blocked shots and eight PIM through nine games this season in a mostly defensive role in the top four on the blue line.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Not contributing offensively
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei has been held pointless through four games this season.

Skjei has been skating on the team's first defensive pairing opposite Dougie Hamilton, so he's been playing mostly in a stay-at-home capacity most nights, allowing Hamilton to jump in the rush. Skjei's point production was limited to the 24-25 point range over the past three seasons, so he will likely struggle to crack the 20-point plateau this year given his current role.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Gets helper versus former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei notched an assist and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Rangers in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Skjei, who joined the Hurricanes in a trade from the Rangers at the deadline, set up Warren Foegele for a third-period goal that turned out to be the game-winner. It was the first point for Skjei during the three-game series. The blueliner added four hits and a plus-4 rating against his former teammates.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Joining Carolina via trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hurricanes acquired Skjei from the Rangers for a 2020 first-round pick Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

The Hurricanes needed reinforcements on the blue line due to Dougie Hamilton (leg) and Brett Pesce (shoulder) both missing significant time, and Skjei can eat up top-four minutes. They also acquired Sami Vatanen (leg) from the Devils. The 25-year-old Skjei has averaged 20:41 per game this season, and he's accrued 23 points, 124 shots, 99 hits and 91 blocked shots over 60 contests. Skjei isn't a rental, either, as he's signed through the 2023-24 season at $5.25 million annually.

Rangers' Brady Skjei: Filling stat sheet in wrong places
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei had four shots and four hits but a minus-2 rating in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Bruins.

Skjei showed off his well-rounded game, logging 1:18 on the power play and 1:24 on the penalty kill over 21:30 of ice time. He's still lacking in the most important categories, however, with just one assist over his last 11 games and 22 points in 57 games overall.

Rangers' Brady Skjei: Lone goal scorer Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei tallied a goal on five shots, dished four hits and added two PIM in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Skjei was the most effective Ranger from a fantasy perspective, contributing in multiple categories. The 25-year-old has picked up two goals and three helpers in his last nine outings. He's up to 21 points, 97 shots on goal, 74 hits and 66 blocked shots in 46 games.

January 13, 2020 11:20 PM
Rangers' Brady Skjei: Two helpers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei picked up two assists in Monday's 6-2 win over the Islanders.

He notched a helper on the Rangers' first two goals of the night. Skjei hadn't had a multi-point performance since Dec. 12, and on the year the 25-year-old has six goals and 20 points through 44 games.

January 1, 2020 03:04 AM
Rangers' Brady Skjei: Slides assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei posted an assist in Tuesday's 7-5 loss to the Oilers.

The defenseman had an all-around solid performance with three shots on goal, three blocked shots, two hits and a plus-2 rating in the chaotic game. Skjei is up to 17 points, 83 shots and 57 hits through 38 games this season. The one knock on his game for fantasy owners is a lack of power-play time.

Rangers' Brady Skjei: Adds assist Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei posted an assist, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Sharks.

Skjei has 12 points through 30 games this season. The blueliner has added 61 shots on goal, 46 hits, 40 blocked shots and 29 PIM. He's notched 25 points in back-to-back campaigns, but he's tracking for slightly better production in 2019-20.

December 9, 2019 12:32 PM
Rangers' Brady Skjei: Earns assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei picked up an assist in Sunday's 5-0 thrashing of the Golden Knights.

Skjei is currently on pace to top the 30-point mark for the first time since his rookie campaign in 2016-17 when he notched five goals and 34 helpers. The blueliner is averaging 20:15 of ice time but is seeing minimal usage with the man advantage, which limits him from becoming a top-end fantasy option.

November 10, 2019 12:40 PM
Rangers' Brady Skjei: Back in there Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei (undisclosed) will return to the lineup Sunday against the Panthers after missing one game, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

Skjei is over whatever issue caused him to miss Thursday's win over Carolina. He can now turn his focus to rediscovering his scoring touch, as Skjei has only one goal and four helpers in 13 appearances.

November 8, 2019 01:16 AM
Rangers' Brady Skjei: Not playing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skjei is not in the lineup Thursday in Carolina for what Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post speculates could be a health-related reason based on the comments by coach David Quinn earlier in the day.

Regardless of the reason behind Skjei's absence, he will take his first night off of the season after taking part in each of the first 13 contests. The team should clarify his status again ahead of Sunday's tilt against the Panthers, but Ryan Lindgren joins the lineup in his place Thursday.
