Since suffering an injury in March, the Buffalo Sabres have been hoping that Jack Eichel could return this season and now the team has an answer. On Wednesday, the team announced that Jack Eichel will miss the rest of the season with a herniated disc and will have surgery to repair it. Eichel is expected to be ready in time for the 2021-22 NHL Season.
In 21 games this season, Eichel has 2 goals 16 assists, and is a -9. Since being drafted by Buffalo in 2015, Eichel has improved every season and has proven to be someone who put up 25 plus goals a season. Even though Buffalo has been one of the worst teams in the NHL since drafting Eichel, none of it has been because of him.
With Buffalo having one of the worst seasons in NHL History, from firing their head coach, and losing 18 straight games, losing Eichel for the rest of the season is a blow to the team in a season where Buffalo would like to forget it happened.
