Jeff Skinner News
Buffalo Sabres left wing Jeff Skinner (upper body) has been activated from Injured Reserve and will get back to work on Tuesday versus Anaheim. Skinner has missed the past five games while battling an upper-body problem. He's set to rejoin the first line and should also skate on the first power-play unit. The 31-year-old is one of Buffalo's most dangerous offensive weapons, totaling 17 goals and 16 assists in 38 appearances this season.
Buffalo Sabres forward Jeff Skinner is out week to week with an upper-body injury. Skinner suffered the injury during Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Seattle Kraken. He skated 15:42 in the contest and logged a goal and an assist on three shots before his injury. It's been a nice season for the veteran who has tallied 17 goals and 33 points on the season, second-most on the Sabres behind center Casey Mittelstadt. It's the second time this season that Skinner has missed time with an upper-body ailment as he missed three games in mid-December following a hard hit by Avalanche superstar Nathan MacKinnon. Fantasy owners should simply set Skinner on the IR instead of cutting ties altogether.
Buffalo Sabres left wing Jeff Skinner was on fire against the Canadiens on Thursday, posting one goal and three assists in a 6-1 victory. Following a goalless opening period, the Sabres struck twice on the power play in quick succession, with Skinner playing a part in both goals. He added a couple of even-strength assists in the third period. The 31-year-old is leading the way in goals for the Sabres, having lit the lamp 16 times, and Skinner boasts 31 points in total with 38 games played. He's started to build a scoring streak with his most recent outings, getting at least one point in three consecutive games.
Buffalo Sabres wingers Jeff Skinner (upper body) and Jordan Greenway (upper body) are poised to return to the lineup for Thursday's matchup against Toronto. Both players have been activated from Injured Reserve ahead of the clash. Greenway has been absent for nine games, while Skinner has missed the last three. The latter is definitely the bigger piece for Buffalo and is set to rejoin the top line and the first power-play unit on Thursday. However, Greenway will also add some two-way quality to the team's third line. Tyson Jost and Victor Olofsson are set to come out of the lineup on Thursday to make room for Skinner and Greenway.
