Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: In lineup Tuesday

Skjei (undisclosed) will play in Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks. Skjei ultimately didn't end up missing time with the apparently minor injury. He's in his usual top-four role on defense.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Game-time call

Skjei (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports. Skjei's status for Tuesday's contest likely won't be determined until Carolina takes the ice for pregame warmups. If he's able to go, Skjei will likely skate on the Hurricanes' second pairing versus Chicago.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Snipes opening goal

Skjei tallied a goal on four shots in Thursday's 3-1 win over Detroit. He also added two PIM and two hits. Skjei snuck in from the point and picked the corner from the slot to open the scoring 4:40 into the second period. It was the third goal of the year for the defenseman, and his second in the past three games. The 27-year-old has nine points in 46 games in his first full season in Carolina.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Done for night

Skjei won't return to Tuesday's game against the Lightning after suffering an upper-body injury. Skjei logged 8:32 of ice time before exiting Tuesday's game. The nature of his injury is unclear, and he'll have just two days to recover before Thursday's road clash against the Panthers. Skjei has recorded eight points through 44 games this season.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Ice time on the rise

Skjei skated a season-high 24:08 in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Panthers, but failed to crack the scoresheet for the 11th consecutive game. The Canes continue to deploy Skjei primarily on the second defensive pairing opposite Brett Pesce, but Pesce remains the more offensively-minded of the two. Skjei currently leads all Canes defensemen in hits (27) and is third in blocked shots (25), so he is clearly more focused on his defensive duties at the moment.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Nabs helper in win

Skjei recorded an assist and two hits in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jackets. Skjei picked up his third helper in the last four games on a Vincent Trocheck goal in the second period. The 26-year-old Skjei has heated up offensively, but it's not likely to last long. He has added 12 hits, 10 blocked shots and eight PIM through nine games this season in a mostly defensive role in the top four on the blue line.

Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Not contributing offensively

Skjei has been held pointless through four games this season. Skjei has been skating on the team's first defensive pairing opposite Dougie Hamilton, so he's been playing mostly in a stay-at-home capacity most nights, allowing Hamilton to jump in the rush. Skjei's point production was limited to the 24-25 point range over the past three seasons, so he will likely struggle to crack the 20-point plateau this year given his current role.
