Skinner returns to action

The Carolina Hurricanes activated forward Jeff Skinner from injured reserve, after he sat out 16 games with a concussion, in time for Sunday night's 2-1 loss to the Washington Capitals.

The 19-year-old was hurt on Dec. 7 against the Oilers in Edmonton. At the time of the injury, he led the club with 12 goals and 12 assists for 24 points.

"I think I'm just excited to get out there and play," Skinner told the Raleigh News & Observer prior to the game. "When that first hit comes and when I first go in the traffic area and sort of the pucks are bouncing around, when you see how you react to that, I think that will sort of ease me mentally as much as much as it feels good physically."

In his first game back, Skinner recorded a shot on goal during 17 minutes and 23 seconds of ice-time and centered a line with Jussi Jokinen and Alexei Ponikarovsky.
