Skinner's entire game tracked mostly positive, overall, this year after a slow start
He battled back from very poor stats in the first couple months of the season and ended with an impressive 2.62 GAA / .905 save percentage - considering how the year started
In his last ten game segment he posted a 6-3-0-1 record - his save percentage slipped to .892 and GAA jumped to 2.89.
Big body goalie. When he drops to the butterfly he still takes up a ton of net / sits upright / doesn't get leaning forward.
Rebound control is key to his success. Pucks in front of him are handled well. When plays spill to the flanks he is tested with his lateral push / quickness at times.
The team in front of him is elite offensively - but do give up high danger chances against more than some contending teams - Needs to start every game 'on time' and give the group confidence to play to their identity.
