Buffalo Sabres Player Season Report Card: Jeff Skinner

The Buffalo Sabres season has come and gone, and in a year that almost nobody expected anything remotely exciting, fans found themselves with plenty to cheer for. The season featured many surprises — from veteran resurgences, to young gun breakouts, to rookies having some quietly solid years.

Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Reaches 30 goals

Skinner scored his 30th goal of the season in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers. His first-period tally gave the Sabres a 3-1 lead, but the team's offense went quiet the rest of the way. Skinner has reached the 30-goal plateau for the fifth time in his career and the first time since he potted a career-high 40 in 2018-19. Matching that mark is probably unattainable, but given the heater he's on -- seven goals and 13 points in the last 11 games -- Skinner could make it close.

He needs one more goal to reach 30 for the fifth time in his career -- Skinner's first three 30-goal campaigns came in a Hurricanes uniform, but his career high of 40 was scored as a member of the Sabres in 2018-19.
