A little about Jeff,
Skinner began earning honors in the NHL at a historically young age.
After getting 31 goals and 63 points with the Carolina Hurricanes during the 2010-11 season, during which Skinner was 18, he became the youngest winner of the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie. Also during that season, the forward became the youngest player to appear in an NHL All-Star Game and the youngest All-Star in any of North America's four major sports.
That precocious nature has been with Skinner seemingly all his life. At 9 the Toronto native landed a bit part in the movie "Death to Smoochy," which was directed by Danny DeVito and starred Robin Williams and Edward Norton. He won a bronze medal at 11 in the 2004 Skate Canada Junior Nationals, a competition featuring Canada's top young figure skaters, including future Canadian Olympian Patrick Chan.
He scored a Hurricanes-high 33 goals during the 2013-14 season, giving him two 30-goal seasons before turning 22. At 22, Skinner also became the fourth-youngest player in franchise history to reach 100 goals, behind Sylvain Turgeon, Ron Francis and Geoff Sanderson, after scoring against the Calgary Flames on Nov, 10, 2014.
A powerful and speedy skater with great balance and agility, Skinner is able to maneuver through traffic, stay on the puck and create scoring chances for him and others, which sets him apart from most players. Those abilities convinced the Hurricanes to select him at No. 7 in the 2010 NHL Draft.
