  • Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Hat trick in win

    Skinner scored three goals on six shots and went plus-3 in Monday's 6-2 win over the Kraken.

    Skinner had a goal in each period to account for half of the Sabres' offense. It's his third multi-goal game of the campaign, and he's now racked up five tallies and four assists over nine games in March. For the season, the winger is up to 24 tallies, 45 points, 186 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 61 appearances. A 30-goal campaign isn't out of the question, but he'd need to have a strong final month.

  • Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Third straight 20-goal season

    Skinner had a goal and two assists in a 7-2 win over the Golden Knights on Saturday.

    Skinner's goal was his 20th of the season. He's hit 20 for three straight seasons, and 2023-24 marks his 10th career 20-goal campaign. That ties him with Tyler Seguin (lower body) of the Dallas Stars for the most among players from the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

  • Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Undergoing medical imaging

    Skinner is set for an MRI before the club leaves for its two-game road trip, Heather Engel of NHL.com reports Monday.

    Skinner was on the ice for just a few minutes Monday before departing and should be considered questionable heading into Tuesday's meeting with the Panthers. Skinner has managed just two goals and one assist over his last 12 contests after overcoming a previous upper-body issue. If Skinner were to miss any time, both Zach Benson and John-Jason Peterka could be in line for a promotion to the top line.

    Skinner suffered the injury versus Seattle on Tuesday. Skinner had been hot of late, scoring three times while adding five assists in his last five games. He could be replaced on the top line by John-Jason Peterka, who will get a boost in his fantasy value should he move up the depth chart.

  • Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Two-point effort in loss

    Skinner scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Kraken.

    He opened the scoring early in the first period, but Seattle quickly took control after that. The line of Skinner, Casey Mittelstadt and Alex Tuch accounted for all of Buffalo's offense on the night, but the Skinner has been productive lately no matter who he's been skating with. In eight games since returning from an upper-body injury, Skinner has five goals and 11 points.

  • Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Being evaluated for injury

    Skinner is being evaluated for an upper-body injury, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports Wednesday.

    Skinner has 17 goals and 33 points in 38 contests this season. He's been especially good recently, supplying three goals and eight points over his last five games. If Skinner misses playing time due to the injury, then John-Jason Peterka will likely be asked to play a bigger role.

  • Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Erupts for four points Thursday

    Skinner scored a power-play goal and added three assists, one with the man advantage, in Thursday's 6-1 win over Montreal.

    The 31-year-old had a career-best season in 2022-23 with 82 points in 79 games, but Skinner isn't showing much in the way of regression. Since returning from a three-game absence in December due to an upper-body injury, he's caught fire with four goals and nine points through six games, and he's on pace for his third straight 30-goal campaign. As long as Skinner skates on a line with Tage Thompson and is a key part of the Sabres' first power-play unit, there's little reason to think his production will start to slack.

The Sabres' top line of Skinner, Tage Thompson and Alex Tuch accounted for three goals and 10 points in total, and on the season Skinner has 14 goals and 25 points in 31 contests as he looks to reach the 30-goal plateau for the third straight campaign and the seventh time in his career.

  • Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Might return Thursday

    Skinner (upper body) felt good while participating in Wednesday's practice, though he might come down to being a game-time decision Thursday versus Toronto, per Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550

Zach Benson figures to remain in a top-six role while Skinner is sidelined.
