Following a rookie franchise record 29 wins this season, Stuart Skinner will not let complacency set in this season.

This season, Skinner had 29 wins and a .914 save percentage in 50 games.

Stuart Skinner posted a rookie franchise-record 29 wins last season and did so alongside Jack Campbell. Skinner hopes the relationship between the tandem will take him and the

to greater heights in 2023-24.




As a result, he became popular among rookie goalies, made an appearance in the All-Star Game, and finished second in the Calder Trophy voting.

With the 2022-2023 season, Skinner felt like he was at home in Edmonton right away and was prepared for the season ahead. As a result of Campbell's fall from grace this past season, Skinner has risen to prominence.

Campbell, however, supported the rookie despite the switch between roles.

In order to beat the Vegas Golden Knights, the tandem must grow together and improve, and Skinner refuses to settle for the same results he had last season.

The goaltender finished the postseason with a 3.68 goals-against average and a .883 save percentage and will aim to improve next year.
