I wouldn't let a little skid mark in his season sour people's view on him. We aren't halfway through this season yet. And at times he's shown flashes of being a brilliant defenseman. As an 18 year old (youngest player on the roster) on one of the top three teams in the nation.
I don't think USA Hockey is prepared to give up on that player because in the interim there are a couple of players looking better simply because Skjei had recent struggles.
IF they cut him, they're making a mistake. But Minnesota will be better for it. They have a big game against BC on the 30th, 2nd game of back to back games.
