|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Skalde had a lot of offensive upside to his game; he had high scoring seasons when he played for the Oshawa Generals
and the Belleville Bulls in juniors. As a pro, large in part, he was able to replicate some of that success.
There was one catch: he didn't stay in one location for very long. He did get to see a few games with the Devils, but
most of his time in the organization was played in Utica. In two full seasons, he cranked out a 40 and a 60 point season.
After he left New Jersey, though, is where things got EXTREMELY nomadic. He had played for the Ducks, Calgary,
Chicago, San Jose, Dallas, Philadelphia, Altanta... and that's just the NHL teams! All the minor league teams he had
played for can lengthen his career page, that's for sure. It's not just restricted to the AHL and IHL, either; he did play
in Switzerland for a season, Sweden in 2, and Japan for a season, all of that late in his career.
The last hockey he played was in 07-08 with the Bloomington Prairie Thunder for 10 games. While there, he was also
serving as an assistant coach, and later head coach.
Currently, he coaches the Guelph Storm of the OHL. He had also served as head coach Cincinnati Cyclones of the
EHCL for 4 seasons.
