Future Looks Bright For Jeff Skinner

from Lois Kalchman at the Toronto Star,

“My parents were huge in my life ... my biggest fans,” he said. “They’ve done so much for me ... sacrificed everything. The biggest adjustment for me in the NHL was living away from home. My roommate, Justin Peters, was a big help and showed me the ropes. ”

Skinner isn’t resting on his laurels. He spent this summer working out two hours a day, six times a week, plus on-ice skills development two or three times a week and yoga while preparing for next season.

And Maurice is looking forward to his return.

“It is special to come into the NHL and score 30-plus goals,” Maurice said. “It usually takes three, four or even five years to develop. Everyone down here has fallen in love with him. He is grounded and he looks like he’s having fun.”
