Jeff Skinner (concussion) has been cleared to resume contact.
This is good news because it indicates that Skinner will be able to return shortly from a concussion that has sidelined him for the last 14 games. He will likely be re-evaluated after Wednesday's practice to determine when he will be ready to play again and that nod may come as early as Thursday night in Tampa.

On a side note Justin Faulk has been selected as one of the 10 rookies to compete in the skills challenges on All-Star Weekend. He is the only Hurricanes player participating in All-Star Weekend.

To be honest, I'm glad Skinner is OK, but I wouldn't mind if he took the rest of the season off. I don't support the idea of trying to lose to get the top pick, but I don't want to damage our place in line by winning some meaningless games down the stretch.

Congrats to Faulk, especially considering he didn't get to play for America in the World Juniors tournament.

I am not in favor of Skinner coming back this season at all. Lets face it, he is the future of our franchise. Why chance losing him on a wasted year.....

Great job Faulk!
