A clerical error nearly cost Skye the chance of even being on the ballet for the VHL Hall of Fame, until a member noticed that nobody had been added to the ballot in S59, the first year in which Skye would have been eligible. Once he was added to the ballot for the S62 HOF induction voting, he was practically a shoo-in for the Hall. Although his career began and ended with questionably-performing teams, Skye still cemented himself as one of the top goalies in VHL history, and he currently sits at 4th on the all-time shutout leaders list.

Breaking out of the VHLM, Skye immediately sought out the same type of dominance he had enjoyed there in the big league. He quickly discovered that things would not be so easy. After taking the promising goaltender 1st overall, the struggling HC Davos Dynamo came in well below .500 PPCT on the season and squeaked in to the wildcard playoff round, only to be sent packing in just 4 games. Skye himself posted a respectable .913SV% in both the regular season and the playoffs, performing well enough to earn the Christian Stolzschweiger Trophy as the top rookie of S51.
52 (DAV) 64GP | 19W - 40L - 5OTL | 0.923SV% | 2.74GAA | 4SO | 174GA | 2264SA | 3811MP
52 (DAV) 5GP | 1W - 1L - 3OTL | 0.936SV% | 2.48GAA | 0SO | 17GA | 267SA | 411MP
Even as Skye improved both his SV% and his GAA from the previous year, HC Davos' performance slumped even further from S51 to S52. As a result, they once again limped their way into the wildcard round and were bounced in quick fashion. Skye's .936SV% helped his team pull out a single win in the series and forced an additional three games into extra time, but it was clear that Davos was trending in the wrong direction for the young star. Insiders reported that Skye's interest in the league was fading and, not wanting this young talent to go to waste, HC Davos shipped Skye off to the Québec Meute for a pair of 2nd round picks. At the time, it was seen as a necessity, as HC Davos took a deeper dive into the rebuild, but it would go down as one of the most lopsided trades in VHL history.

For his first season with a competitive VHL roster, Skye wasted no time getting into the win column, earning his first winning season of his career. The Meute didn't exactly blow the league out of the water, however, and still only succeeded as much as they did thanks to Skye's .931SV%. Come playoffs, Skye would unfortunately see his third straight 1st round defeat. Once again, he managed to nearly single-handedly steal a win, but it was to no avail. He was heading into his fourth VHL season with only 4 playoff wins under his belt to that point.
