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.
