Sabres acquire Jeff Skinner in trade with Hurricanes

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Sabres general manager Jason Botterill continued fulfilling an offseason objective to shake up a team that finished last for the third time in five years, acquiring playmaking forward Jeff Skinner in a trade with the Carolina Hurricanes.

"What's exciting about this trade here for our group is it's not just all about futures," Botterill said, shortly after completing the deal Thursday night. "Here's a player that comes in right away and helps our team right away. And I think that's going to get our National Hockey League players excited."

In giving up prospect forward Cliff Pu and three draft picks, the Sabres landed a three-time 30-goal-scorer, and the NHL's 2011 rookie of the year, who has the potential of playing on Buffalo's top line centered by Jack Eichel.
