Carolina Hurricanes forward Jeff Skinner will not play this weekend because of an upper-body injury, the Raleigh News & Observer reported Wednesday.

Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller told the newspaper Skinner would be out Friday against the Tampa Bay Lightning and Saturday against the New York Rangers.

Skinner has nine points (three goals) in 10 games. He had an MRI exam last week.

Forward Radek Dvorak could return from a lower-body injury for the back-to-back set. A decision will be made Thursday.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
