Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Two points against former team

Skjei had two assists and four shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Rangers. Skjei was involved offensively against the team that selected him 28th overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, assisting on second-period goals by Vincent Trocheck and Teuvo Teravainen. Thanks to nine points in his last nine games, Skjei has raised his season total to 38 -- one shy of the career high he set as a member of the Rangers in 2016-17.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Logs helper in win

Skjei posted an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Ducks. Skjei set up an Andrei Svechnikov goal just 1:17 into the contest, and the Hurricanes never let go of the lead. The assist snapped a six-game point drought for Skjei, a run that's tied for his second-longest skid of the season. The 28-year-old defenseman is at the 30-point mark for just the second time in his career, and he's added 161 shots on net, 84 hits, 68 blocked shots and a plus-15 rating in 73 contests this season.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Two-point effort Friday

Skjei scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-3 win over the Predators. He opened the scoring midway through the first period, dancing through traffic in the Nashville zone before depositing a backhand shot over Juuse Saros' glove. Skjei hadn't put together a multi-point performance since Jan. 7, but on the season the blueliner has a respectable seven goals and 20 points through 48 games.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Erupts with three points

Skjei scored a goal on two shots, dished two assists and blocked a pair of shots in Friday's 6-3 win over the Flames. Skjei's sudden revival on offense continued Friday, as he helped out on tallies by Jesper Fast and Andrei Svechnikov before scoring one of his own. All three of Skjei's multi-point efforts this season have come in his last four games. The veteran defenseman is up to four goals, 12 points, 67 shots on net and a plus-13 rating through 32 appearances. Last year's 10 points in 52 outings was an abnormally poor output -- he's typically hovered around the 25-point mark in a full campaign.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Two tallies in Saturday's win

Skjei scored two goals on seven shots in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Blue Jackets. He also added a blocked shot and a plus-four rating. Skjei found the back of the net in the second and third periods, helping Carolina dig out of a 4-0 hole and giving the blueliner back-to-back multi-point performances. On the season, however, he has only three goals and nine points through 31 games.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Finally lights lamp

Skjei skated a season-high 25:06 and scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 win against the Blues. Now with just three points on the season, it was nice to see Skjei end his goalless drought, but we still need to see more from him before we can recommend him as a bona fide fantasy option. He scored just 10 points in 52 games last season, and he'll be lucky to double that total this year.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Not chipping in offensively

Skjei failed to crack the scoresheet for the third time in four games Saturday against Columbus. Skjei is still seeing a ton of minutes (20:25 TOI) on the Canes' second pairing opposite Brett Pesce, but his offensive contributions to the team's blazing 4-0 start remain limited. This should come as no surprise, as the 27-year-old defender had just 10 points in 52 games last season. He is best left on your fantasy bench for now.
