Canes Draft Jeff Skinner in First Round, 7th Overall

RALEIGH, NC – The Carolina Hurricanes today selected forward Jeff Skinner of the Ontario Hockey League’s Kitchener Rangers with the seventh pick in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft at Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA.

Skinner, 18, completed his second OHL season in 2009-10, scoring a team-leading 50 regular-season goals to finish second among all OHL goal scorers. The Markham, Ont., native ranked tied for first in the OHL with 20 playoff goals, and second with 33 points, in the Rangers’ 20 postseason games before Kitchener’s playoff run ended against eventual Memorial Cup champion Windsor in Game 7 of the OHL Western Conference Finals. In two seasons with the Rangers, Skinner (5’10”, 187 lbs.) has amassed 77 goals and earned 64 assists (141 points) in 127 regular-season games. Skinner’s career statistics are below.

The 2010 NHL Entry Draft continues on Saturday with Rounds 2-7 (1 p.m. ET, NHL Network). The Hurricanes hold three picks in the second round (37th, 46th and 53rd overall), and two picks in the third round (67th, 85th). Following its fourth-round selection (105th), Carolina will sit-out the fifth round before choosing twice in the sixth (157th, 167th) and seventh (187th, 206th) rounds.
