from Chip Alexander of Canes Now,
Canes forward Jeff Skinner will miss tonight’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs and his return won’t be determined until a medical evaluation in Raleigh.
Skinner, the Canes’ top scorer, missed the Winnipeg game Friday. He is out with an undisclosed injury and has spent the past few days with his family in nearby Markham.
Canes coach Kirk Muller said Sunday that Skinner—who absorbed a big hit from Edmonton’s Andy Sutton in Wednesday’s game—did not have any concussion issues. General manager Jim Rutherford was more cautionary today, saying Skinner is not feeling well and that the team would wait on the medical evaluation before making a decision on his playing status.
“He’s a big part of this team and we’re going to miss him and his skill level,” Muller said after today’s morning skate. “We’ll evaluate him when we get back to Raleigh.”
