Storing them with shell on for any duration of time in the fridge will only make peeling harder.
15 yrs cooking for a living. Just saying....
+1 this is a good summary of the videos and research I've done myself. I do hope your hand heals, if you don't have your health, you have nothing. I sometimes think I should upload a video to youtube to show how to use one hand to crack three eggs into a bowl properly. There is only a stupid one there which ends with all three eggs and their shells smashed into the bowl, unless someone has uploaded a proper one more recently.

I've gone back and added italics, bold and underlined the original word which gives the second sentence it's conditional nature. I hope this helps one or two people, and I'll try to reiterate such things in future.
