“Jeff has been diagnosed with a concussion,” said Francis. “He will continue to be monitored by our team doctors and go through proper protocols in the coming days.”

Skinner sustained the injury from a hit by Washington Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen immediately following an offensive-zone faceoff during Sunday’s exhibition game at Verizon Center. No penalty was assessed on the play.

Season hasn’t even started and Skinner has a concussion - this guy has had some bad luck or something.  Fantastic goal scorer, but you’ve got to wonder what his potential is in the future since he’s had so many concussions at such young ages.

Fuch.  I really, really like that kid.  And my heart broke as he was trying to pick up his stick.
