Skinner, three others to return for Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes are set to welcome back four players to the lineup, star forward Jeff Skinner among them.

The team announced that Skinner will return for Thursday night's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins along with forward Tim Brent and defensemen Tim Gleason and Jamie McBain.

Skinner, who is tied for second on the club with seven goals and tied for third in scoring with 14 points, has missed the past five games after suffering a concussion.

Brent and Gleason had been out with lower-body injuries, and McBain was out with an upper-body injury.

Quote of the Day

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
