Jack Skille’s season is over. The 27-year-old Columbus Blue Jackets winger will undergo shoulder surgery next week, the club announced today.

Skille, a pending unrestricted free agent, will finish 2014-15 with six goals and two assists in 45 games. He logged an average ice time of 12:31.

The seventh overall pick in the 2005 draft, Skille signed a one-year, two-way contract with the New York Islanders on July 1, but was claimed off waivers by the Jackets in October.
