He is noted for his superb skating and hockey sense. As Guentzel explains, Skjei will bring many great things to the team.”
Skjei also had an assist and was a plus one. He was also one of the stars of the game.
Russo writes in the Star Tribune “this kid honestly is terrific” and he said that he was “outstanding” on the back end.
