Jeff Skinner Career
Initially involved in both figure skating and ice hockey, he won a bronze medal in the juvenile division of the 2004 Canadian Junior National Figure Skating Championships.

Skinner, who had a successful season with the Toronto Young Nationals, was drafted 20th overall in the 2008 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) draft by the Kitchener Rangers. He had an impressive debut in his first OHL game, recording two goals and an assist in a win over the Plymouth Whalers. By November 2008, Skinner was selected to compete with Team Canada at the 2009 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, where he scored the game-winning goal and helped his team win a gold medal.

Skinner agreed to a six-year contract extension with the Hurricanes before the start of the 2012-2013 season. During that season, Skinner was diagnosed with an upper-body injury later deemed a concussion, and his third season in the NHL was once again plagued with injuries.
