Skinner
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has activated forward Jeff Skinner from injured reserve. Skinner, who has missed Carolina’s last 16 games with a concussion, is eligible to play in tonight’s game against the Capitals in Washington.

Skinner, 19, currently ranks second among Hurricanes skaters in goals (12) and third in points (24). Prior to suffering a concussion against the Edmonton Oilers on Dec. 7, the Markham, Ont., native had not missed a game in his NHL career. Carolina’s first-round draft pick (7th overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Skinner has totaled 43 goals and 44 assists (87 points) in 112 career NHL games with the Hurricanes. He won the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s rookie of the year after leading all rookies in points (63) during his first NHL season in 2010-11.
