Oilers sign F Jeff Skinner on one-year, $3M deal

jeff skinner

The Edmonton Oilers signed free agent forward Jeff Skinner to a one-year, $3 million deal on Monday.

Skinner became an unrestricted free agent after the Sabres bought out the last three seasons of his contract on Sunday. He spent the past six seasons with Buffalo, most recently posting 46 points (24 goals, 22 assists) across 74 games in 2023-24.

Skinner, 32, will be joining an Edmonton team fresh off a Stanley Cup Final appearance. The Oilers rallied from a 3-0 series deficit against the Florida Panthers to force Game 7, but they failed to secure their first title since 1990.

In 14 NHL seasons with the Carolina Hurricanes (2010-18) and Sabres, Skinner has racked up 357 goals and 313 assists in 1,006 games. He won the Calder Memorial Trophy in 2011 as the league’s best rookie.
